Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

June 9, 2011

Today during an a.m. assembly, Free the Children motivational speaker Scott Hammel visited Gillispie to address Grades 2-6 students. Mr. Hammel, who holds four world records connected with his work as an illusionist, demonstrates to Ian S. the sharpness of his juggling hatchets; he didn't have to actually juggle them over Ian's head to make his point to students about pushing beyond comfort zones to face one's fears. Mr. Hammel encouraged Gillispie students to continue their efforts, such as the Grade 6 Vow of Silence fundraiser, to engage with global issues and help children around the world: Gift + Issue = Change.
