Marc Mero is a former wrestler and is now an international speaker who founded the nonprofit organization Champion of Choices. The organization strives to empower students to make healthy and positive choices that lead to lifelong success. Anti-bullying is part of the organization’s message.

Through the Stop Bullying — Never Give Up Tour 2014, the Champion of Choices presentation will be brought to schools. The presentation is designed to change students’ thinking — how they see themselves and others; give students hope and help them realize they’re not alone; and help to make students aware of positive life paths.  

“Everyone at team Matthews is proud to team up with Marc Mero to bring his powerful and emotional presentation to our local school districts,” said Glenn Matthews, president of Matthews Buses. “It is important that we all work together to eliminate bullying from our schools.”

Glenn Matthews said the company’s financial sponsorship will help to enable the Champion of Choices presentation to be put on at local school districts.
