Basheer Jones to speak at Brush High School

South Euclid-Lyndhurst will present the third of its four-part speaker series on Feb. 13.

Motivational speaker Basheer Jones will present "Invest in Your Child: Pay Now or Pay Later" at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Performing Arts Center at Brush High School.

According to the district’s website, Jones’ presentation involves “a discussion of how parents can speak to their children on their own level in order to better understand their needs. The encouragement of this discussion will be for parents to make an authentic investment in their children’s lives now, in order to better prepare them for the future.”

Jones is an “acclaimed Spoken Word Artist and Essence Award Winner” as well as talk radio host, 
according to his website. He is originally from Brooklyn, N.Y. and now lives in Cleveland. He has opened for leaders such as Barack Obama and Tavis Smiley.

Motivational speaker Judson Laipply kicked off the speaker series in September with a discussion of how human beings internalize information by drawing on personal experiences. Laipply was followed by Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office Community Outreach Officer Leah D. Hackney who presented “Cyber Safety 911: Protecting Our Children” in November.

Jones’ presentation was originally scheduled for Jan. 29, but was postponed due to inclement weather.
