The #RoadToAwesome

Two years ago, our journey on the #RoadToAwesome began.  It honestly was an accident, pure dumb luck that it all came together.  Bradlee W. Skinner and I were preparing to do a presentation at the Jostens Renaissance National Conference in Orlando.  Our topic was student leadership.  As we put the final touches on the presentation, we added a couple videos.  One, which Bradlee had never seen prior, is by YouTube sensation Kid President. (see below)  At the :42 mark of the video, Kid President quotes the Robert Frost poem “The Road Not Taken”.  Kid President tells us ‘what if there really are two paths? I want to be on the one that leads to awesome.’

When you travel the #RoadToAwesome, you find yourself always looking to get better than you were yesterday, to improve on your skills, beliefs, and abilities.  When you walk the #RoadToAwesome, you learn that you choose your outcomes, you determine your path through life, and you control who you become.

We use the #RoadToAwesome daily at Rock Springs High School.  It’s more than just a hashtag, it is a way of life.   If you follow our hashtag you will see it connecting to the values that Bradlee and I both share (often sharing them on twitter and facebook).

Our students who do awesome things at RSHS get nominated for the #RoadToAwesome barbeque (one per month) on #RoadToAwesome cards

A final quote from Kid President, “What will you create to make the world AWESOME?”

Simply put, the #RoadToAwesome our way of saying ‘we know who we are and where we want to be’ – come follow us!
