National speaker, author and resilience expert Tasha Schuh recently delivered a message of hope and inspiration to 10 southwest Iowa schools through TS Bank’s TS Promise series.
Her visits included Treynor, Riverside, Tri-Center, Underwood, Griswold, East Mills, St. Albert Catholic Schools, Abraham Lincoln High School, Lewis Central High School and Southwest Valley Community Schools.
Schuh, paralyzed from the chest down following a theater accident when she was 16, struggled with depression after the incident. She then dedicated her life to helping youth navigate mental and emotional health challenges through inspiring progress for student mental health awareness and skill-based coping mechanisms. She discussed her four keys to resilience during the presentations: Purpose, Attitude, Team and Hope.
“The assembly was powerful, informative, engaging, and remarkable,” said Stephen Eubanks, principal at St. Albert Catholic Schools Middle School/High School.
“We are so appreciative to TS Bank for sponsoring our recent assembly with Tasha Schuh,” added Nicholas J. Kroon, principal at Riverside Community School District Middle School/High School. “Tasha’s message fit right into our goals as a school to build resilience in our kids. Our kids connected immediately with Tasha’s story and her overcoming of many obstacles in her life.”
