I have had the honor of hosting several Middle School Assembly presentations by Mr. Coach David Verdu from Way Beyond Measure.  Each time, he  brought a very uplifting message that has engaged our students, as well as, challenged them.  The student laughter, mixed with a very powerful messages, are just a few of the reasons why we will host him at our school at least twice every year. 

If you have an opportunity to have this team at your school, I highly recommend them.  They bring a very powerful, dynamic program that empowers students to be themselves. Our student body and staff gets very excited when they know Way Beyond Measure is coming to present.

Don't miss the opportunity for your students to receive the invaluable lessons offered by Way Beyond Measure.  I found them to be easy to work with and very flexible with their allotted speaking times.  Get them on your schedule, then buckle up and enjoy as they take you on a journey of twist and turns.  Your school will not forget this excellent and encouraging program.

Way Beyond Measure came to our school district and made a tremendous impact on our 3 campuses.

Staff members said, “That was a 10 star assembly.”  “That assembly was great!!!”  “Our kids really needed that.” 

Our students said, “Thank you so much for bringing them here, I needed to hear that today.”  “That was emotional and intense, so amazing!” 

We even had a middle school student tell their parent, “There was laughter, there were tears, it was awesome!” 

It has been 2 weeks since the assembly and I just heard an elementary student say, “SUSO!  Stand Up! Stand Out!” It truly made a lasting impression on our student body and we are so thankful for Way Beyond Measure.  They give their all as they communicate with students in memorable and relevant ways.  Highly recommended!

Coach David Verdu recently presented a "Stand Up, Stand Out" assembly at Sabin Middle School in Colorado Springs School District 11. David's message was focused on individuality. It was uplifting for our students and his delivery was informative and entertaining! The students were positively engaged and tuned in during the entire program and they gave positive feedback about the SUSO program.
Coach Verdu truly made a positive impact in our students body from his presentation. He is a dynamic, entertaining, professional, and an energetic speaker. His presentations are fast-paced, using amazing graphics and video excerpts, as well as, having students participate in the assemblies. He is very approachable and easy to work with, and his sense of humor creates an honesty and ease for students to relate to him.

Love the Lewis Family

This is my daughter Desiree Lewis, she is 16 at Paris High School, she is being bullied. They call her a bleep bleep, and etc.

She had no desire to finish high school. She told me every day she wishes she were dead.

Well, that was until she saw your assembly!  Coach, I want to thank you for saving my little girl’s life. She has a new HOPE on LIFE and she is leading and growing in the SUSO leadership program.  Your program is working, and it impacted Desiree’s life forever.  Thank you for all you do.  We will never be able to repay you.

Coach Verdu works with our students at Rockin' Rebels, our after school program, and also has spoke at our Fields of Faith gathering.  We absolutely love having him come.  He connects with the kids in a very needed and very unique way.  The energy he brings is out of this world and his life experiences help him relate to young people. His organization is one of a kind, and our kids talk about him for weeks after any event he's ever done for us. Way Beyond Measure is not JUST an organization; they are individuals on a mission to help hurting people, children and adults alike, and their passion for what they do shows!
