The District was honored to welcome motivational speaker and founder of Think Kindness Brian Williams to several buildings from Jan. 21-23.

With a goal to inspire measurable acts of kindness in schools and communities around the world, Mr. Williams spread his mission during assemblies at Robert Moses Middle School and Belmont, Parliament Place, Woods Road, Marion G. Vedder and William E. DeLuca elementary schools. 

He urged students to be kindness ninjas and tasked them to do 5,000 acts of kindness during the course of 15 days. In addition, they were also asked to donate sneakers they no longer wear to his shoe donation campaign for orphaned children in Kenya. He also met with Robert Moses Middle School’s Upstanders and eighth grade digital research class, Marion G. Vedder Student Council’s kindness “krew” and William E. DeLuca Student Council. Students eagerly accepted the challenge and left the assembly excited to start the task.
