• Author, speaker Sam Glenn speaks to staff during opening week of school

    sgIf you haven’t heard of Sam Glenn, it’s suggested you look him up. He could help put a positive boost in your day.

    Employees from Bellefonte Area School District had the opportunity to work with Glenn, a motivational speaker known as the “Attitude Guy,” for its annual Opening Day event that officially welcomed faculty and staff back to school.

    For the second year, the district teamed up with Bald Eagle Area School District and Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology to bring in a motivational speaker to help pump up employees before the start of school. This year’s event was hosted at the Bald Eagle Area High School auditorium.

    Last year, the event was held at the Bellefonte Area High School auditorium and featured author and speaker Jon Gordon.

    The event on Aug. 12 included Glenn who spoke to employees about the kinds of attitudes that can have a positive impact on themselves and others by “complaining less,” “lightening up” and “connecting to what inspires you.” His message came with humor and creativity as he cracked jokes, told stories and painted an eagle on a canvas as a symbol of leadership, courage and positive spirit.

    Glenn is an author and motivational speaker whose clients include businesses, professional sports team and more. To learn more about him, visit his website: Sam Glenn
