Finley students learned about the power of making the right choices when former WWE wrestler Marc Mero visited their school.
The highly emotional and powerful assembly, based on the successes and pitfalls of Mero’s life, was sponsored by the school’s PTA to coincide with Bully Prevention Month. At the assembly, Mero spoke to students about his humble beginnings and how he ultimately became a WWE wrestler. He also told students that writing down his dreams and goals helped him to achieve them.
The WWE wrestler explained to students that choosing the right friends would have a profound impact on their lives, saying that when he hung out with losers, he became the “biggest loser of all,” turning to drugs and destructive behavior. He also reminded students of how gifted, talented and special they are and to come together as a school to step up against bullying.
