As you start to prepare for the Fall of 2023, consider hiring Coach Kevin Kush to kick off your school year! Kevin will deliver that dose of motivation that your teachers need and also a message to your students. Coach Kush draws on his 30 years as an educator and 21 years as the head football coach at Boys Town working with at-risk youth. His stories are powerful and unforgettable. At times, he had kids that were on opposing street gangs on his football team. He had to teach them how to work together as a team and forget what they had learned on the streets. He reminds us that we all can make a difference in another person’s life.

Special message from Kevin Kush on his message to educators:
