  • Paula - Tuscaloosa City Board of Education
  • What can I say about Ron Clark's outstanding presentation to 1,300 Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma teachers, administrators, and support staff Monday, August 8!! From start to finish, he was inspirational in every way with such a personal, relevant, direct, and highly entertaining speaking style. Rarely are so many people equally inspired by a speaker, but the feedback was unanimous, Ron Clark knocked it out of the park. Honestly, how can one person accomplish so much with one presentation? But Ron Clark did .and we are thankful!
