P. deClercq, Principal
During my 20 years as an educator,
I have sat through many assemblies. None have made such and impact or left such
lasting impressions as the presentation that you gave to the students on our
campus. Teachers and Students still ask about when you are coming
morning Jimmy spoke with over 2,000 students and
teachers. We expected him to speak for about 45 minutes. He spoke over 60
minutes. I mentioned this to say that I was happy he went over time. The
students were riveted to every word he said. He used emotion, humor, and
audience participation to get his message across. When he finished, the
students gave him a standing ovation like no other presenter had ever received.
His message on diversity, attitude, and determination was right on. He exceeded
our expectations for we have never received feedback from a presentation as we
did with Jimmy. To miss out on his message would be a shame. We will be
inviting him back.

A.L.L. type cancer and I want to thank you for helping me to remember to never
give up. I will look at the piece of paper you wrote hope on and look at it
before and after chemotherapy and never give up hope in getting well. Thank you
for reminding us that there is a future for all of us. When are you coming back
to speak at our school?

first I didn't want to attend the assembly. But
after hearing your message on the backpack you got my attention. You have given
be the tools for success. I now have a better attitude and feel that I am ready
to take the TAAS next week. Thank you for helping me.
I am a sophomore at South Houston High School. You came in the
beginning of February. I enjoyed your program. I would want to thank you for
coming to South Houston High School. The one thing I learned is to believe in
myself to pass the TAAS test. The one thing that was interesting was the bird
and the frog that you were talking about we were the frog. The one thing that
was funny was how you had the Mexican and American on the overhead. I would
like you to come again and thank you for coming.
I want to thank you and San Jacinto College for the presentation
Friday. I really learned a lot. That speech inspired me to finish school and
college. I learned to never be ashamed of me and believe in myself. I want to
thank you for the $500 scholarship to San Jacinto College. I could really use
that $500 for college. Thanks again until I see you next time. I will always
remember your speech.
The Latino Student Union would like to thank you for coming to
the campus of Ball State University. On the 19th of March you delivered a
keynote presentation that conveyed a message we needed to hear and are still
talking about. "If it is going to be, it is up to me." It was a true pleasure
to have you here educating the campus about the difference we can all make,
even if the difference is with one individual.
We would also
like to thank you for making time for the Latino Student Union to speak about
the many facets of leadership. We benefited from all you said and are taking it
into great consideration as we prepare our new executive board members for next

you again!!!! You were wonderful!!!!
