Four-Time TEDx Speaker to Share Insights with Students at Sebring Local Schools

SEBRING, OH - Because I Said I Would founder, author and four-time TEDx speaker, Alex Sheen, will bring his inspirational movement to Sebring McKinley Jr./Sr. High School on Friday, August 23rd at 9 a.m. in the auditorium. 

Because I Said I Would is a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. The group is changing lives through Promise Cards; more than 11.3 million have been distributed internationally.

One hundred percent of Alex's speaking engagement fees go directly to the charity and their programs. Those funds help his organization produce impactful programming, such as volunteer projects, character education in schools, high school Chapters and awareness campaigns with global reach. 

Sheen will speak with Sebring staff and students about how his promise card movement began, how they inspire others to keep their promises and the impact it has around the world. Students will receive a bracelet and promise card, as well as have the opportunity to meet Alex at a meet & greet following his presentation. 

Each member of the Sebring McKinley staff is being provided a copy of his book and a t-shirt. 

“We are working on a Sebring Promise this school year and with a major focus on the theme of keeping promises in the district,” said Toni Viscounte, Sebring Local School Superintendent. “We have also an art projected planned that will be centered around our pledge.”
