Cross Timbers Life

  • Last Friday the 7th and 8th grade students had the wonderful opportunity to hear an amazing guest speaker.

    Nick Vujicic is an Australian motivational speaker born with tetraamelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by no arms and no legs. Overcoming great obstacles, Nick graduated with double majors in financial planning and accountancy, and began speaking inspirational messages focused on hope, acceptance, and finding meaning in life. Nick travels internationally, and has addressed over three million people in almost 60 countries on five continents. He has been featured on Oprah show, and is the founder of a non-profit organization Life Without Limbs. We were so lucky to have this inspirational man share his message of hope, acceptance, and fortitude with our Wolves. You can find the video of the assembly here.
