Byron Garrett is one of the most positive people I know. He is humble, talented and lives his best life! When he speaks to an audience, one can feel his positive energy radiate throughout the room. He has spoken to staff at one of the districts I served and I plan to bring him again to speak to staff and students. I have copies of his books and I always give a book away to a student or adult that may need guidance in their lives. Byron’s message is simple and true. He will inspire and motivate! He is one of kind. I am blessed to know him.
