Nassau County Schools

April 14th, 2011

During my travels, I meet all sorts of dedicated and talented individuals. It is clear that there are some individuals are meant for the job that they have. Today I met a very busy Andreu Powell, coordinator for prevention and intervention in the Nassau County School District. When he learned of One Million Acts Of Kindness, he invited me to his office for a half hour meeting while a number of his staff touched base with him as he and I talked. The passion this man has for his job, is second to none. He is all about helping kids in his county try to stay out of trouble and help find the right program for those who do get in trouble.
He and I talked about how simple the concept of One Million Acts Of Kindness is and how it could be a part of most of his programs, including character building. Catching kids before they get too far down the wrong path is a main goal of his. Having One Million Acts Of Kindness as a lifetime goal for kids is the perfect fit. “Like peas and carrots” as Forrest Gump so eloquently says.
