November 2015 Education Roundup – Irvington

Youth-to-Youth Motivational Speaker Visits High School
Ty Sells, Director of Youth-to-Youth International, visited Irvington High School November 3-5 to bring his messages of making healthy and responsible choices to promote positive change to the students. Sells, who has spoken at schools all across the country, began his visit with a school-wide assembly on Tuesday, November 3, followed that up with a number of student workshops on the 4th and 5th, before finishing with an evening forum for parents on the 5th centered on how they can better connect with their children.
Sells’ visit was sponsored by Irvington About Safe Kids (iASK). iASK coordinator Lisa Tomeny said Sells’ ability to relate to teens while speaking about serious topics was a big reason for bringing him to Irvington. “It is our goal to continually provide support, awareness and education to our teens and young adults in order to help them make healthy and responsible choices as they age in an increasingly complex world,” said iASK Co-chair Allyson Felix. “We are happy to be partnering with the Irvington School District.”
