Here's what some of the youth have to
say about the Michael Walton

“Even if no one else believes in me, I believe in myself and trust that I can do anything that I put my mind to. Thank you Michael Walton for setting a good example by achieving goals everyday and finding the time to teach us kids to believe, study and work hard"
(7th Grade Student, James Madison MS, Prince George's County)

"When Michael Walton spoke to us it left me speechless. He told us a story about a crossroads in his life in which is mother gave him inspiration that led to him accomplishing great things for years to come. That day when I went home I applied myself more than ever. I picked up a book, started reading and studying. I learned so much from the assembly. If you have a dream go for it and don't let anyone rob you of that dream."
(10th Grade Student, Dr. Henry Wise HS, Prince George's County)

“Believing in goals means never giving up hope that you can do it! I used to think I would never go to college, never become anything, but, the Speak Out to Reach Out tour inspired me to keep trying and never back down. Michael Walton did not give up on his dream and look at him, his dreams came true”.
(12th Grade Student, Dr. Henry Wise HS, Prince George's County Maryland)
