Cara Filler Motivational Speaker Visits Southridge High School

April ArticleTo kick off Southridge High School’s “Safe Haven” school campaign, Southridge HS leadership in partnership with GEAR UP was able to bring in guest speaker Cara Filler.

Cara Filler a youth motivational speaker and prevention specialist presented to the entire school talking to students about traffic safety, choices, peer pressure and risk taking. In her presentation Cara shared her life story of her youth and how it was impacted by the loss of her twin sister during a car accident. It was during the summer of their senior year in High School when this happened; very much relating to students here at SHS. Students at the presentation were able to be inspired to stand up for themselves and their friends, have a good time safely and make better life-changing decisions. With Cara’s humor and ability to relate to the students, she encourages them to understand the choices they make and how powerful they can be. SHS continues the “Safe Haven” campaign with GEAR UP’s support focusing on smart choice making on the road, online and on campus.
