“Alone we can do so much, but together we can move mountains.” This powerful statement and message of service was delivered from 13-year old Joshua Williams to over 700 middle school students at Jones Middle School in September. In education we oftentimes stress to our students the power of one individual, but it is oftentimes overlooked when adults deliver the message. Joshua brings a quality that allows him to connect with others and many of our students can relate to Joshua. This empowers our students to make a powerful difference for others and Joshua’s message has had a lasting impact on our community. Joshua is a selfless role model for people of all ages and his inspiring message is contagious! Our students are moving mountains and we are thankful to have Joshua leading the charge!
