Former Houston Texans safety Andre Hal visited South Houston Intermediate today to motivate students to embrace hard work and determination in the pursuit of their dreams.

“As a professional athlete, I wanted to give of my time so that I could encourage some young person to never give up on their dreams,” said Hal.

He first met with SHI’s Men of Distinction, a program comprised of seventh and eighth grade boys who convene weekly to learn, share and discuss topics that impact them each day. Topics ranged from academic success to social, personal and leadership development.

“The Men of Distinction is a great program supported by the school and community, and makes a huge difference in the lives of our students,” said SHI Texas history teacher James Kelley.

Hal ended his visit with a motivational speech to student athletes in an assembly that took place in the school’s gym.
