Gaither H.S. Hosted THE First Public School Because of Sam (BOS) Screening!
This past Thursday was truly a royal day for Sam Piazza and the Because of Sam film journey.
Following Sam’s recent talk at Gaither High School at the invitation of the “Friends of Gaither” student group, we were invited back to show the FULL 50-minute movie!
After winning Homecoming King at Gaither High School 10 years ago, this marked a special day for Sam, who has gone on to achieve great success since his time there.
He is a true ambassador for Gaither, his employer PDQ, Gigi’s Playhouse Tampa, and Best Buddies… and, he is the star of Because of Sam, of course. 😎 His accomplishments go on and on…
The students raised the money to pay the required fee to have BOS and Sam come to the school and sat intently as they watched Sam’s epic story unfold.
Afterward, we hung out for a fun photo op and Q and A.
It was wonderful to give kudos to the students and faculty for being an inclusive school that’s maintained that legacy for 10 years!
We have held underwritten BOS screenings at private schools, but this was our first public one— and how fitting that it was at Sam’s alma mater.
Thank you, too, to Because of Sam sponsor, PDQ, for hooking up all of the students with PDQ coupons for 3 PDQ (chicken) Tenders.
Do you know a school, business, or church that would like to host a BOS “lunch and learn” or movie night to teach inclusion and empathy to its organization?
Sam and I are ready to come to you!
Thank you for your support, and for cheering on Sam and the BOS Roadshow!
