Speakers Bureau at Northport: Peer Pressure and Integrity

Speakers Bureau at Northport: Peer Pressure and Integrity

Northport was so pleased to host SLPS School Board Chair Dr. Donna Mills at our Speakers Bureau.  The theme for the program for the month of December was peer pressure and integrity.  The program was kicked off with a skit on peer pressure and bullying by eighth grade drama students Ryan Gilbert and Elaina Ledford.  Special thanks to Northport drama instructor Alison Barajas for working with the students and instilling the love of drama.  Northport middle grades instructor Sandra Tyndale Harvey sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to help encourage the students to have hope and to trust caring adults to help with problems.  Dr. Donna Mills introduced special guest speaker Lt. Tommy Nieman, firefighter and paramedic, from the SLC Fire Department. Lt. Nieman spoke dramatically and eloquently about his real life experiences on the job.  The students were enthralled.

Northport has been working in conjunction with Dr. Mills on many very special programs that have educated, uplifted, inspired and brought the community into the school which is a conjoined goal of the school and Dr. Mills.  The Speakers Bureau has shed light on many topics, and students are elevated because of this special bond.

Many thanks to Dr. Mills, Lt. Nieman, and all who made the program unique and special.
