On the 8th of March, we had a guest speaker who talked to all of the high school (as well as some of the middle school). The speaker is a Wolsey-Wessington graduate, and I believe many people would remember him very well: Cole McGehee. His message for the juniors was that success is not whether you are wealthy or accomplish many things. To be successful, you need to make yourself happy and you need to lay every brick of your life as perfectly as you can. One of his favorite stories he said was of Will Smith. The story is about Will Smith’s dad knocking down a wall and telling him and his brother that they needed to build a new wall. At first, Will was thinking that it was impossible. The point wasn’t that they couldn’t build this wall fast, but to set down one brick at a time in the perfect spot until they built the wall. This was the example that he used for how we should live our lives. I hope this helps everyone be motivated and helps them want to be successful in their life.
