Last year, Ingredients of Outliers: A Recipe for Personal Achievement was published, and while the ink was still drying on the pages, John Shufeldt’s second book was in the works! This was in part due to a group of 7th-9th grade students and one fantastic principal at EDUPRIZE School in Gilbert.
John originally spoke at an EDUPRIZE Career Day in 2013, after publishing his first book, Ingredients of Outliers a Recipe for Personal Achievement. The students at EDUPRIZE and another local school engaged so well with the material, which was originally written for a professional audience, that John decided he must begin an Outlier Series book geared towards student leaders. Ingredients of Young Outliers: Achieving Your Most Amazing Future, published in March 2014 was the result, and Dr. Barbara Duncan, Principal of EDUPRIZE was featured on the dedication page.
To our delight, after Ingredients of Young Outliers was published, Dr. Duncan invited Dr. Shufeldt to come back for another Career Day with material from the book. John spoke to the group of about 150 7-9th grade students, using topics that he pulled directly from chapters in the book, Check out a couple videos snapped by our social media team with material on humility(video), and calmness(video) which John covers in the books. The event was also professionally filmed, and we can’t wait to bring you more inspirational material on student leadership soon!
John was thrilled to speak to the students once again, thanks again Dr. Barbara Duncan for the invitation!
