  • Dear Mr. John, What a wonderful assembly! I have never seen (in my 41 years teaching in Metro Schools) students this excited about a program. Even when the people on stage blow something up, it’s exciting but the students aren’t allowed to participate. With this everyone participates. This was Awesome with a capital A. Every… Read more »

Mr. John,

The GHSO/ThinkFast Interactive program was absolutely awesome!!!

The students loved it, the teachers were bragging about it, and I am thoroughly impressed.

I do life safety education like this as a full-time job, and this is one of the coolest programs for high school students I have seen. Alan was explaining that you do a lot more colleges than high schools, but this was perfect for our kids. I am looking forward to the Cookeville High School program as well in a couple weeks – that is my county also.

I do think it is worth saying that Matt and Alan are probably the best two individuals that could be working with high school students. With the students that helped hand out controllers, the contestants, and during the load-out process as well. These two are just good guys that really fit right in, in the high school setting.

Thanks again for being so easy to work with and helping us make this happen. Our students will undoubtedly walk away from this with life lessons.

I will be posting a story about this on our website, as well as Facebook hopefully today. www.putnam911.org and www.facebook.com/putnamemstn www.facebook.com/putnam911tn
