Mcclain students and staff heard a dynamic presentaion by motivational speaker and former NFL player Shawn Harper on Thursday. Harper captured the students' attention immediately, and asked students Paul Tomko and Trevor Tite to help him out on stage. One student's reaction was, " I wanted to stay in there all day and listen to him!" Another said, "He related to us and talked to us on our level." Harper spoke of breaking the chains holding us back and using pressure to change us into "diamonds." He reminded us that, "We aren't born winners, we aren't born losers, we are born choosers."
