Leadership program puts youth on right path

The Peers Offering Positive Solutions (P.O.P.S.), formally known as Operation Snowflake, was held Nov. 8 at the First Christian Church in Morris.

P.O.P.S. is a youth leadership program that promotes healthy choices and being a good leader. Middle school and high school students from Morris, Coal City, Wilmington and Reed-Custer attended this event.

Ron Glodoski spoke at P.O.P.S. this year. He is a highly recognized motivational speaker and empowerment strategist who engages students in a fun and dynamic way to teach them the importance of making positive life choices.

Ron’s presentation, “The Real Deal on Turning Yourself Around,” challenges kids to believe first in the value of their own lives, and the importance of respecting themselves and others. 

The P.O.P.S. event would not be possible without the generous donations from: Reed Custer Middle School, Wee Sip Liquors, D Construction, Coal City Parent School Organization, Mack & Associates, Wilmington Middle School, Braidwood McDonalds, Morris District 54 PTO, Fraternal Order of Eagles, Big R, Richard Rizzo, Loving Deeds, Exelon Generation and Wilmington Coalition for a Healthy Community.
