GUYTON, GA (WTOC) - Students learning how to make all the right moves; thanks to help from a friend.
Life lessons all taught using the game of chess, from nationally acclaimed motivational speaker Orrin "Checkmate" Hudson. Teachers, parents, and students at South Effingham High School listening in as "Checkmate" teaches his life skills.
Hudson says, "Chess is an excellent tool to teach young people decision making skills. We believe the greatest gift we can give our children is the ability to make good decisions. Heads up, pants up, grades up, and the big one: never give up.
And they got a double dose, Hudson gave one speech during a back to school pep rally earlier in the day, and turned around to give his same speech to parents as they got off of work.
