Keunte Rudd shares with younger students
Keunte Rudd, a student at the REACH Academy at Sunny Hill School, was given permission by Superintendent Teresa Russell to speak to members of the Passport to Manhood Club at Haywood Middle School. He went one afternoon and spoke to the group about bullying and knowing their self-worth. Keunte shared some of the experiences that he has had during his time in school and how these things affected him and his performance in school. He spoke to them the effects of chronic absenteeism. He also shared with them how he has changed since then and now attends school regularly and is on track to graduate in May. Keunte spoke with them about making mistakes but to not let the mistakes define you.
