NFA Main Welcomes Motivational Speaker Sherman Browne


Mercy College sponsored motivational speaker, Mr. Sherman Browne to speak to students about "finding your passion and the importance of preparation." 
 

Sherman Browne is game-changing personal growth expert, dedicated to empowering the masses to unlock their potential while activating their legacy. Through a successful nexus of works in business, education, government and community relations, Sherman delivers provocative insights and strategies that positively advance society through his personal, professional and humanitarian endeavors.  As the CEO of AIMHigh International, LLC, a global social enterprise and consulting firm, Sherman has established himself as a sought-after authority on leadership, personal and organizational achievement systems, mental conditioning, peak performance and youth & millennial empowerment strategies.

After more than a decade of service, Sherman has also established the AIMHigh Empowerment Institute, an educational success, retention and graduation initiative to improve the academic, personal, professional and social outcomes for students at every level of the pipeline. The institute is currently helping thousands of students remain engaged, educated and empowered while developing competence, confidence and character.

Mr. Browne wove his stories with examples of likely scenarios from the lives they are currently experiencing. He left the students with several phrases of wisdom. 

 
Some noteable phrases of advice were: 
"Education is preparation for elevation."
"M & M - Methods to be successful. Mistakes to avoid."
"You will never find a hater who is doing better than you." 
" You can't be who you want to become by still acting like who you used to be."
"An ounce of action will always outweigh the amount of intention you have." 

Sherman Browne's main message encouraged students to find a mentor. He told students that he didn’t get to where he is in life because he was smart. "I got there because I found someone who was successful and willing to guide me."
After the assembly dismissed, several students stayed to speak with Mr. Browne personally. Students were also able to talk to representatives from Mercy College and fill out an application.

We’d love to attend or post your pictures and recap to highlight the amazing accomplishments throughout our district! Grades PreK-5 Amanda McDowell (amcdowell@necsd.net) and Grades 6-12 Cassie Sklarz (csklarz@necsd.net).
