Students of all grade levels at John Pearl Elementary School were recently visited by Richard Specht of the ReesSpecht Life Foundation for an informative presentation about the importance of paying forward good deeds and respecting others.

Using a colorful digital display of songs and storytelling, Mr. Specht spoked to the students about making a commitment to the community and demonstrating compassion and respect for others.

“Mr. Specht inspired students at John Pearl to spread kindness to family and friends,” said Principal Susan White. “Students also appreciated his animated reading of his book, ‘A Little Rees Specht Cultivates Kindness.’”

After the loss of their infant son, both Richard and his wife started what was once only a small movement, but has now spread to nearly every continent on the planet.
