Best-selling author and speaker, Jon Gordon, spoke to staff, students, community members, and business leaders this past Thursday, October 29th at Hershey Public Schools.  He shared his message of positive educating with the staff as well as related the message to business leaders in the audience.  Mr. Gordon then addressed students and told students how important it is to have a positive attitude in school and life.  He encouraged students to have a vision and work hard to be successful.

Hershey staff studied Jon’s book last year, “The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy”, during staff in-service time.  The book relates to education because it creates enthusiasm for learning.  The book also helped the staff to focus on a common goal.  It created energy and motivation to become better at what we do.  Research shows that a positive caring teacher will engage students in their learning. 

His message was sponsored by the John Applegate Foundation, Hershey Educational Foundation, Hershey Booster Club, Hershey State Bank, Simplot, Trane, Huskerland Radio and D.A. Davidson.
