Marc Mero visited Wolf Lake Middle School earlier this month to inspire the students to make positive choices and to set goals. This was a powerful message that made a big impact on the students. Mero shared his life story and the lessons he learned from looking back on his choices - both good and bad. As a child, Mero wrote down his life goals in a journal and talked about how this helped him to stay focused on the accomplishments he wanted to achieve in his life.
He encouraged the students to also do this and to set high expectations.
Students were given the opportunity to reflect on his presentation and write down their own goals. This would be a great conversation to have with your child over the holiday break and to hear their thoughts on Mr. Mero's presentation.
Mero had an awesome time hanging out with M.A.R.V.E.L. (left). He also became their newest member.
