On Thursday the 15th, Holliston High School invites motivational speaker Mike Smith to speak at the school. Mike lived in Imperial, Nebraska, had a 2.4 GPA, was a reckless highschooler, and to top it all off, his name is Mike Smith. Sounds like the average teenager, right?

Wrong. Mike started his amazing journey in his senior year when he realized that being ordinary is a choice. He built his life around hard work, dedication, and the pursuit of his passion, and it resulted in something beautiful. Mike has since started two non-profits and influenced hundreds and thousands of youths in high schools nationwide with his motivational speeches.

As the founder of BAY, a nonprofit skateboard park, Mike works to inspire hope for the future through positive activities, positive adults, and positive communities. The BAY has become a lot more than just a skate park; it’s become a 30,000ft art, music, coffee, and community center.mikesmithhero
