Champion of Choices
“CHOICES!” ~ Production Saves and Changes Lives
Bullying, violence, substance abuse and suicide are top concerns among schools, students, parents and communities. We live in a society where the value of human life is not respected. Violence in video games, media, and new technologies has desensitized people – especially affecting our vulnerable youth population. Repeated emotional and physical abuse can tragically lead to suicide or have life-long consequences on an individual’s self-esteem and well-being.
But there is HOPE! The Champion of Choices powerful “CHOICES!” School Production helps students see life from a new perspective. Presented by former WWE Wrestling Champion Marc Mero, more than one million people have seen this program – described as life-changing and life saving!

Become Your Captain. Catch Your Future
Nick "Sunshine" Tokman
$1000 for 1 keynote, $1500 for 2
Nick Tokman, "Sunshine" on Discovery Channel's ‘Deadliest Catch,’ speaks nationally about building self-worth in students so they think for themselves and make the best decisions for their future. He partners with schools to address common issues students face including peer pressure, high expectations from family and negative messages on social media. Through storytelling and visuals, he shares with students his path prior to becoming known as ‘Sunshine’ on the hit tv show, how he dealt with struggles that many teens and tweens go through and the mindset he developed to overcome his obstacles, mistakes and failures. After Nick's presentation, students will leave as the “captains” of their lives; focusing on what they want to do and not letting outside influences steer them off course. Having presented to crowds as large as 17,000 people and numerous student leadership organizations, students will leave remembering these lessons in an entertaining and memorable way.
Link will be custom for each presentation. Before I speak at your school, I'll need to be on the phone with your staff for an hour to get to know the school, the students and the message you really would like to hear so I can be most effective.
