St. Lucie West K8 (SLWK8) is excited to welcome our first monthly Speakers Bureau speaker in partnership with Dr. Donna Mills, SLPS School Board Vice-Chairperson. Each month, SLWK8 along with other schools, hosts guest speakers who encourage and motivate students to make good choices, use positive role models and learn to find their passion and purpose in life.

SLWK8 guest speaker was Mr. Samuel McDuffie, basketball coach and motivational speaker. Mr. McDuffie spoke very insightfully to our eighth-grade Sharks. He gave background information about himself and about his youth. He encouraged students to think bigger and be resolved and focused.

The Speakers Bureau extend to our students a great opportunity, and we look forward to working with Dr. Mills and the many who are willing to share their inspiring stories with our students.
