Motivational Speaker Provides Life Lessons to Students
As part of Levittown Educators Against Destructive Decisions Week, Wisdom Lane Middle School students in sixth and seventh grade heard from motivational speaker Rohan Murphy on Oct. 27. Murphy, who lost both his legs at birth, spoke to students about overcoming obstacles and living life with a purpose through his own personal experiences.
Students learned about how Murphy began wrestling in high school and how he strived to be a better athlete and overcome adversity. Murphy also shared with the students his goal to attend a prestigious college. He specifically wanted to attend Penn State University and did just that. His motto, "no excuses" was prominent throughout the program and he encouraged all the students to not be afraid of failure.
"Outline your life in pencil, not pen," said Murphy.
