CROWN POINT A MTV celebrity will speak at Crown Point and Moriah schools Wednesday, Feb. 13. Jeff Yalden, who is also a youth motivational speaker, will address students in Crown Point at 9 a.m. and Moriah students at 1 p.m. Yalden is from Sagamore Beach, Mass., and has spoken to more than 3,000 youth audiences in all 50 states and representing over 48 different countries. His message about life and purpose is delivered with humor and hard-hitting honesty to high school and middle school-aged students around the world. Yalden has spent the last 12 years touring the world, coaching and delivering his motivational speech to youth, educators and parents to make better life and family choices. The National Speakers Association has awarded him its highest honor. In 2002, the organization granted Yalden the title of Certified Speaking Professional. Less than 7 percent of professional speakers worldwide carry the designation. Also, MTV called his show its best show in the six seasons of taping MTV MADE. His show was the longest running show seen by over 70 million youth. As an author, Yalden has six books to his credit. He has also co-authored another book and is a contributing author of the New York Times best-seller A Cup of Chicken Soup for the Soul. To encourage young people to think before they act, Yalden also created the Take Time To Think wristbands. Formerly a two-time Marine-of-the-Year and Mr. New Hampshire Male America, Yalden draws upon his own life experiences to reach out to students. You cant be angry about yesterdays circumstances. However, you can choose to accept the past and make better choices today to make the circumstances of tomorrow more fulfilling, meaningful, and rewarding, Yalden stated.
