Motivational Speaker Visits APS

Alma students got a little Halloween treat Monday morning. Joe Odhiambo, a motivational speaker, came to Alma to visit with the students. He is one of the world’s best basketball dribblers. Joe is a 14-time Guinness World Record holder. A few records that he holds are the longest time dribbling a basketball continuously and the longest time spinning a basketball on his finger. Joe is originally from Kenya, Africa and wanted to come to the U.S. to attend school. He worked very hard and graduated one of the top in his class and received a scholarship to come to the United States. Joe emphasized to the students respect, responsibility, and believing in yourself. He let the kids, and even the teachers, get involved in his activities and presentations.
