Kevin has made such a huge impact on PSD 150 children. He stresses the importance of soft skills in the workforce, while detailing the education necessary to be successful today. The children are engaged and excited while Kevin speaks, often commenting on the lessons they learned from his presentation. The information he delivers is vitally important, and the style he has in delivering it makes the information so memorable.
