Assistant Principal Uses Personal Story to Motivate Students
During an all freshman assembly Jan. 6, Glenbrook South Assistant Principal of Student Activities Jim Shellard taught students the value of preparation by sharing his personal story of climbing the highest peak in North America.
Since 1999, Shellard has been an avid climber. One of his more accomplished climbs was in the summer of 2004. He reached the summit of Denali (Mt. McKinley) following 16 days of climbing.
He shared with students how he trained for such a treacherous climb and then correlated that to how important it is that students prepare appropriately for difficult changes they will face such as finals.
