Itall happens within minutes! At times with broad strokes, and at others with intense detail. Vibrant color is set on huge canvases as artwork is choreographed to selected pieces of music playing in the background. This inspirational assembly will have the audience wanting more!
I just wanted you to know how much the kids loved his presentation. He really was wonderful, and even the teachers have been stopping by my office to let me know how much they enjoyed him. After his presentation, he went into the first period Art Class to speak to the students for a little while. That was really nice of him, and the kids were thrilled. Thank you so much for suggesting him for us! Dot Stranix

I just had to take a moment to write and thank you so very much for the phenomenal performances you gave at the Green Brook Middle School yesterday. In my four years as PTO President, I've only known of one other assembly that has stirred our school community the way you have. Your assemblies were a topic of conversation at our PTO meeting last evening and from what I understand, at the basketball game as well. As I walked through the halls yesterday, teachers and students alike were stopping to tell me how great the assembly was and how "cool" you were. Sharing your personal stories really spoke to the students as I understand from the parents that many went home and relayed them. You certainly are blessed and I thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with the world. Lisa Couch, President

Richard was great. He had the audience in the palm of his hand. The students and business and industry representatives were in awe of the art as well as his story. Plus he is a genuine individual who took the time to share his life experience with the students at his lunch table. One of the best, if not the best, motivational speakers that we have had in the 17 years that we have been doing our "Connections to the Future." Thank-you!!!! Rocky Bettar

Richard Hight is an engaging, motivational, talented presenter. He weaves a story that reflects honesty, and provides not only a masterful piece of art when he is finished, but leaves a lasting impression of integrity and a message of inspiration. We would have him back again! Marian Hendershot

The students loved it! Very entertaining, wonderful storyteller. The students were inspired to draw their own patriotic drawings after the show.Richard was very professional, easy to work with, receptive to our needs. Many teachers commented on the quality of the artistry and loved the story. One teacher said it was the best assembly she has ever seen. Another said it made her want to be a better mother after hearing the message. Overall positive experience and wonderful show. Thank you! Leah Valente
I have to be honest. I was a bit nervous...how a middle aged man drawing on a sheet was going to hold the attention of k-6th graders. I was so pleasantly surprised. He mesmerize not only the students but the teachers as well. We had him do 2 shows (morning and afternoon) and he was amazing both times. The kids listened to him speak about how he became an artist at a young age. They also sat there QUIETLY (yes you read right) and watched him create on his canvas. He was not only an amazing entertainer but I have to tell you he was a great man to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend him to any age audience. Mariah Drenth-Cormick
What an EXCELLENT presentation! Mr. Hight is an excellent artist as well as an outstanding storyteller. His message was inspiring and his assembly kept all of the students engaged and interested by using music, art and storytelling to encourage students to find their talents and then serve others. It was one of the best school presenttions I have ever seen! Cathy Stapleton
Richard was absolutely wonderful!! His artwork was unbelievable and his stories were inspiring. All the teachers and students were amazed and are still talking about the assembly. Everyone is extremely excited to hang his artwork in our school for all to see. I would highly recommend this program to everyone. No matter what age - Richard offers an important message for all - do what you are best at and don not get caught up in what you are not good at! Focus on the positive! WE LOVED HIM!!!

I just wanted you to know what a delight it was to meet and enjoy Richard this morning. Our children loved his presentation and the murals he left for us are beautiful and vibrant reminders of the day and the message. We had a great time chatting, as well. So...a great experience, a wonderful, authentic and gifted presenter and...you were pretty incredible, too. Every encounter was a positive one. You couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful.

We recently had Richard Hight at our MLK assembly. He did 2 separate assemblies and bother were wonderful. To see his work created before the eyes of the students was amazing. He did an MLK portrait for us as well as a beautiful Lion (our mascot). We actually framed and plexiglasses these and have them hanging in our cafeteria/commons. We hope to someday build a new school and these will travel to the new school.
Highly recommended as he speaks of following your passion and strengths. Kris L. Petersen
What a beautiful presentation Richard brought to St. James School! We have gotten all positive feedback from parents, teachers, students and a visiting school! Everything was just right, down to the music (loved Somewhere Over the Rainbow, by Eva Cassidy). We enjoyed meeting Richard's family it brought a special touch to assembly.
Brad, please pass on our thanks to Richard, we will display "Under His Wing" up high, so we all fit under the wing! Cindy DiClementi
