We are excited to announce that on Monday October 18, 2021, Spider Jones will be coming to talk to the Grade 4-8 students about anti-Black racism, equity and inclusion. Spider Jones is a highly popular motivational speaker who is much admired for his diligent work among the youth. His inspirational life story “Out of the Darkness” reveals his amazing rise from the impoverished, gang infested, inner-city projects of Detroit and Windsor and how, as a grade five dropout, he eventually returned to school at the age of thirty to become an honour student. Spider’s favourite thing is talking to his Nighthawks, whether it be about sports, entertainment, or hot issues. Spider Jones is an energetic advocate of the ‘Believe To Achieve’ Organization, a youth outreach development and counseling charity. Many of Spider’s events go to the benefit of ‘Believe To Achieve’ kids.
