Mr. Ralph Lee works with Mr. Mike at Stewart & Calhoun Funeral Home, and is one of Mr. Mike’s hero’s and mentors. Mr. Lee was our guest speaker for our recent AIM Celebration, where we honor our Academic Incentive for Mentees winners. Junior and senior high boys and girls receive monetary awards for academic success each semester, and special gifts are awarded for highest grade point average and most improved grade point average. Mr. Lee told his story about how he “did it all” when he was growing up. Every bad choice was made and consequences were real. Mr. Lee spent over 15 years in prison and life in prison, like growing old, is not for sissies. He counted noses and told the boys that if the averages are true, that 80% of the boys would taste prison life for themselves. Mr. Lee is celebrating 20 plus years of sobriety and encouraged the boys to find out who they really are, develop positive passions, follow their passions, and make good choices. Thank you Mr. Lee for sharing your story and being brutally honest.
