“I’ve heard Matthew speak and sing many times. I watched him speak at a youth event recently, and I was watching the reaction of the students almost as much as I was watching his speech. They never seemed bored or disinterested. They laughed at the appropriate times, responded positively, and were surprisingly engaged and attentive. To me this speaks volumes.”…Adam R. Whisel, Principal, Fannett-Metal Middle/High School

“Matt came to our school last month to speak to our junior high students. His message was powerful and uplifting. Prior to Matt’s message, I thought I was just coming to “babysit” my students and to make sure there was no trouble during the presentation. By the time Matthew was done speaking, I was ready to follow my dreams. He reminded us that we can do anything if we truly believe it and work hard enough.”…Benjamin Young, teacher of Mathematics, Forbes Road High School

“Matthew Vollbrecht spoke to our seventh, eighth, and ninth graders last month.  Matt is a natural presenter.  He relates well to his audience by using both his creativity and his great sense of humor to keep his listeners on the edge of their seats.  Matthew always delivers a powerful message from start to finish.  His messages are the type that all of us, especially our impressionable children, need to hear more and more.”  …Christina Ramsey, Principal, Forbes Road High School
