“Rising Above the Norm” means success, strong values, living a life you will always be proud of. Strive to be mentally tough; don’t allow negativity to be a part of your success. Live and lead with positive values and morals. Motivate yourself and develop a strong work ethic, then you have freedom in your life choices and pride in your achievements. Respect and discipline yourself and you will gain self-esteem. You may experience failure, but get up and try again, be determined. Do not ever give up! You are priceless; do not allow your experience in middle or high school to be the pinnacle of your entire life. Do not allow alcohol to abuse your life.
