RK3, Belmont focus on effort, sharing stories
At the beginning of the school year the entire Belmont Elementary School staff committed to be very intentional and explicit when teaching effort strategies to our students. One of the many positive outcomes of this undertaking has been the willingness of students and staff to share personal effort stories on a regular basis.
This week, Nebraska football player Ron Kellogg, III (known as RK3 to some) came to Belmont to share his effort story with third, fourth and fifth graders.
Ron reinforced that effort is what has taken him so far.
When talking about his memorable last second touchdown pass he said:
“This was me, I was that quarterback. I threw that last second pass. No one expected me to do that coming off the bench. I knew what I put into practice up to that point. When push became shove I knew we would make it. That is the key thing if you give your time and effort to what you want to pursue good things come. A lot of people didn’t think I would play football but I go towards the positives. This shows who you are as an individual, the sky is the limit for you, I hope you are ready.”
