Recommendation

from Florida State Athletic Director

Mr. Clayton,

The Jimmy Sauls leadership academy was such an impactful and empowering program for our kids to be apart of.  Our students were engaged the entire time and really enjoyed the sessions.  I recommend this program for any high schooler or high school program that wants to make a greater impact of their students emotional development.

Thank you for the opportunity to be apart of this program.
