"L. Wayne Smalls inspired me to go back to school and pursue my dream of becoming a counselor."

Angela Carroway

 "Mr. Smalls taught how to develop an attainable plan of achieving  goals by using the S.P.R.E.A.D.  method.  His presentation was electrifying and the audience was ready to go out and make something happen."
