Northport K-8 principal Glenn Rustay and assistant principals Bennie Montenegro and Doug Shook, as well as the entire Northport K-8 family and several district staff, welcomed motivational speaker Dr. Adolph Brown III to an inspiring and energizing program for the seventh and eighth graders. Dr. Brown entered the room dressed as a thug looking for his grandmother. Students began to take notice of his dreads and his clothing almost immediately. Dr. Brown moved to the stage and began taking off his first impression outfit and thrilled the students when he appeared well groomed and full of confidence. Dr. Brown moved the students and guests to understand that first impressions are lasting impressions. He related grade point averages to real world finances, supported positive behavior by urging students to make good choices and came down hard against bullying. Dr. Brown used music to relate to the students and his impact was powerful. Dr. Brown is pictured in the front with principal Rustay, staff and several students.
