    Don't trust everything you see.

    Even salt looks like sugar.

    10 A-Days left. Pay attention, and stay focused.

    Stay Woke, Overland.

  • November 6, 2019

    This morning’s Woke Wednesday message comes from one of my favorite hip hop artists and actor, Mos Def who said, “The idea of peace and love toward humanity shouldn't be nationalistic or denominational. It should be a chief concern for all mankind.”

    As we enter into the holiday season and we celebrate Native American/Indigenous month, take a moment to evaluate how we treat one another. Instead of listening to the negativity out there, let’s vow to seek peace and love, Overland. Remember, we are more alike than we are different.

    Stay Woke, Overland.

  • October 23, 2019

    Sometimes people may not tell you how they feel about you, but they’ll always show you.

    People’s thoughts become their actions.

    Stay woke, Overland.

    Blazer Great. Blazer Proud. Blazer Excellent.

  • October 9, 2019

    There’s a difference between being liked and being valued. A lot of people like you. Not many value you. Be valued, and know your worth.

  • October 2, 2019

    Life is not about who’s real to your face. It’s about who’s real behind your back. We throw around the word “fake” as if we expect everyone to keep it real with us, or “Keep it 100.” The real-est people in my life lift me up, defend me, and protect me when I’m NOT around. Know the difference between the real and the fake.

  • September 17, 2019

    Put your phone away, and pay attention to those talking to you. There’s even an app for that…it’s called RESPECT.

  • September 11, 2019

    Whatever you do most, you will do best. If you spend all of your time studying, you will excel in the classroom. If spend the majority of your time playing a sport, you will achieve as an athlete. If you spend all of your time texting and Snapchatting, that’s where you’ll thrive. Your time is one of the most valuable things you have, be thoughtful on how you use it.

  • September 4, 2019

    "Pay attention to your gut feelings. No matter how good something looks, if it doesn't feel right...walk away."

    No matter what your friends are telling you, your gut knows right from wrong. Listening to your gut can change the whole outcome of your situation. If it doesn't feel right, then it isn't right.

    Stay Woke, Overland.

  • August 28, 2019

    Swag never put gas in anyone’s car.

    Show up to show others what looking good and taking care of business is all about.

    It’s okay to look good, but be sure you are handling your business in the classroom as well.

    Remember, there is nothing more attractive than someone that looks good, smells good and walks with a purpose.
