Artist, speaker, and youth leader CJ Luckey will be presenting his “Celebrating All Persevering Students” (C.A.P.S.) program at several Carroll County elementary schools during the month of September. In-school performances will be held from September 23-27, 2019. A public presentation will be held on Tuesday, September 24, at 6:30 p.m. at Winters Mill High School. This presentation is open and free for all CCPS families and is geared toward elementary-aged students.
Luckey’s presentation is based on his C.A.P.S. album, which was inspired by the research of Dr. Carol Dweck and promotes her findings on the growth mindset. During the presentation, Luckey will discuss several growth mindset concepts that are embedded in the lyrics of the C.A.P.S. album. “The Power of Yet”, “The Power of Mistakes”, and “Grit & Resilience” are a few concepts that will be covered in this high energy, insightful, and inspiring presentations. Students will dance, sing, and learn concepts that will benefit them not only in the classroom, but in life as well. This hour-long presentation will leave students encouraged, empowered and inspired! The presentation will conclude with a dedication to teachers.
CJ Luckey is a hip-hop artist and motivational speaker from Dallas, Texas. He has spoken and performed for schools, camps, and conferences around the country for five years. He provides a positive, uplifting, and encouraging presentation and has found that blending hip-hop with a positive message is a sure way to captivate listeners while helping the message resonate in their hearts.
According to Luckey, “My goal is to encourage, empower and inspire the younger generation. When you have a gift or something that can change or impact the lives of many people, you have a responsibility to bring it to life! The gift I have been blessed with is music and I intend to use that gift to impact the lives of young people.”
