Ben Rudrud from The National School Safety Consulting firm gave a motivational talk to our 7th grade students about “RIPL” which stands for: Relational, Impactful, Preventive, Leadership. RIPL training focuses on creating a healthy and safe school climate that surrounds and supports students with nurturing adults.

Ben held our students captive with his personal stories, practical advice, and animated delivery which left our students with a can-do attitude and a sense of support. He focused on how each decision in life can create an impact for life, negatively or positively and challenged each student to learn what their strengths are and how that confidence can translate to many positive decisions over a lifetime.
