Read below what people who have experienced Jared’s message are saying about his story and ability to inspire positive change.

Jared found his way into the hearts and minds of our students through powerful music and thoughtful lyrics. Many of our teachers left the performance stating that it was one of the best assemblies they’d ever seen.

Brian Noaker – Principal, Milton High School

Jared Campbell is awesome! The combination of his personality and his lyrics sends a positive message to the kids without them even knowing it! Do not pass up the opportunity to see him in person and listen to his message!!

Patti Cross – Principal, Warrior Run High School

The students that were not familiar with Jared were caught off guard because they thought they were in for “just another assembly” presented by someone unable to connect with them. What they got was not only a powerful musical performance, but a performance filled with several messages of hope and true examples of overcoming the obstacles of adolescence and life in general.

Tom Westcott – High School Counselor, Owego Free Academy

Jared is cool, hip, funny and incredibly talented. Middle school students’ attention is very easily captured by someone like this and as a result they were completely captivated by his songs and his stories.
