Touching lives by appreciating, thanking others

World-renown motivational speaker Helice “Sparky” Bridges worked with 400 Fort Irwin Middle School fifth through eighth graders and their teachers for three mornings, Feb. 18-20, to help them learn how to end bullying and prevent suicide.

At school assemblies during the three days, Sparky helped the students learn how to appreciate, respect and love themselves and others around them.

On the third day, they were joined by more than 100 family members, faculties, bands and cheerleaders from Yermo School, Tiefort View Intermediate School and Silver Valley High School at Fort Irwin’s Freedom Fitness Center to learn Sparky’s special Blue Ribbon ceremony.
