A sincere thank you for motivating and challenging our students! The 2,500 freshman, along with their parents, our faculty and community guests were held captive by your inspiring and thought-provoking message.

You absolutely held them captive for your hour-long presentation. This in itself is a compliment, because they won't sit for an hour for anything! Your message was inspirational and truly moving.

Your heartfelt story and presentation were well-received and motivating. The flag presentation was very inspirational. Makes one put things into perspective and realize that we can make a difference no matter how small or great the problem.

Mike Schlappi was the most inspirational speaker we have had to date. His ability to weave his motivational story with a message of hope and accountability was a rewarding experience for all involved.

Selecting you as the commencement speaker was quite simply the best decision I have ever made concerning our commencement. To say that your talk was a home run would be an understatement.

During the time Mike spoke to my students, you literally could have heard a pin drop in the gym. Students were so interested and listened so intently to what he had to say. He truly changed the lives of many people day.
