The professional teenager, Mike Smith, well known for his career in forging nonprofit organizations, has recently visited Lacey Township High School in an attempt to engrave the local students’ futures. The biggest message that he wanted to give was that “Good things happen when nobody else is looking”. He seeked to motivate the students and show them the importance not merely wishing or speaking about what we wish to do but instead to be doers. After all, “kids are the inspiration”, said Smith.

Smith is a city slicker who grew up in a small town in Nebraska. Although there was little to do in this area, Smith went to the creative anvil, cultivated ideas, made friends and devised things to do. While at first he was only interested in being a run of the mill athlete, this soon refined into a passion of wanting to help people. One of the first people he ever helped, an old friend from his high school, is still with him to this day. Mike certainly has a heart for people and is not just a forgery.

As of today, Mike is the CEO of two Nonprofit Organizations, owns four businesses and also is occasionally an ambassador in starting new product campaigns. Some of his campaigns include Skate For Change and Beanies4Life.

After Mike was done speaking, many students gathered around him to express their interest in helping people just as he is. Mike has touched the hearts of many and this school would not be the first. Hopefully this would cause others to go out into the world and make a difference like Mike has done.

    Last year a group of Lacey students traveled with me to Sayreville H.S. for presentation by Mike Smith. He inspired them to start the socks for Santa Drive last year which was continued this Holiday season! Thanks to Mike for inspiring our students! Last year they collected over 1000 pairs of Socks!
