letters of recommendation :: iowa
"I just wanted to let you know how much the staff and students enjoyed the presentation on Monday. I have been in several classes and have asked what the students thought. It has been 100% thumbs up in every class. The teachers also appeared to like the assembly. Our principal said it was a very valuable assembly and the timing was perfect for our school as we get ready to take ITBS test."

"It wasn’t a typical “don’t do drugs” speech. I couldn’t believe the engagement of our students. Our presenter for the assembly was Mike Donahue and he did a fantastic job. I also bought his book, Reinventing My Normal, and the students have been checking it out in order to read it."

"This was an assembly that fit the recommendations from staff and students in that we try to find presentations that are applicable, reach students, and are uplifting, rather than purely informational and depressing. R5 accomplished that with an upbeat assembly."

"R5 visited our school this year and definitely had a positive impact on our student body. Mike’s energy and positive attitude really grabbed our students’ attention, and his message kept their attention. It is important for teens to know that there are ways to deal with their problems other than turing to drugs, alcohol or other self-deprecating behaviors. The 60 minutes our student spent with Mike were well worth it."

"Some of our FCCLA student leaders recommended that we have R5 Productions come to visit our school and talk with our students. Mike Donahue was our R5 Productions speaker. His message was truly one of hope. It was very powerful. The students cheered for each other, their teachers, their peers, and their community support. It was an amazing morning."

"The days of a speaker standing at a microphone telling students not to drink and drive and expecting them to listen are over. After R5's assembly presentation, the response was overwhelming." (R5 second visit)
