Damascus Middle School: The Strength Team Shows DMS Students the Power of Their Choices

A man pulling a rope held by a boy.On Tuesday, August 21, Damascus Middle School students and faculty gathered in the gym with Mr. Zeb Bishop, a member of The Strength Team. 

Mr. Bishop not only demonstrated his physical power as he broke a Louisville Slugger baseball bat, folded a metal skillet in half, and bent a metal pole with his bare hands, but he also discussed the power of choices over our lives.  He shared his own personal story and used members of the audience to show how bad decisions, no matter how small, lead to negative consequences in our lives, making it difficult for us to move forward toward the goals we have set for ourselves.  Hopefully, students left the assembly with a new awareness of their own power over their lives!
