Sequim High School to host motivational speaker

On Thursday, May 23, Sequim High School will play host Jeff Yalden for a pair of speeches. A noted motivational speaker on mental health and suicide prevention, Yalden will be speaking to SHS students during the school day, then at 6:30 p.m. the he will speak in a community-wide in the SHS auditorium, 533 N. Sequim Ave.

Yalden has made a career of motivational speaking, going to high schools, middle schools, colleges, and leadership conferences to deliver his messages for more than 20 years.

Specializing in mental health, Yalden’s website advertises that he has given more than 5,000 talks in all 50 states and in 49 countries around the world.

Invited by Sequim High School’s executive ASB board, Yalden’s visit is the result of months of searching after ASB Executive Vice President Katie Potter noted a lack of resources for students and community members on mental health issues. Noting in a press release that Yalden brings a message that is “poignant, personal and impactful,” Potter and SHS activities coordinator, and student leadership advisor Sean O’Mera hope that Yalden’s visit can help provide some of those resources.

For those interested, admission to the event is free, and SHS auditorium doors open at 6:15 p.m.
