‘One-Man Volleyball Team” comes to county schools

Feather Publishing

Officials in Plumas County Office of Education’s Prevention Department are excited to announce the coming of Bob Holmes, “The One-Man Volleyball Team,” to Plumas County.

“Bob’s powerful message on drugs, alcohol, tobacco, suicide, bullying and violence is informative and life-changing,” organizers say.

Holmes’ theme is “Beat the Odds.”

“Just as I stand alone and beat the odds against me on the court, you can stand alone in the crowd, do the right thing and beat the odds that are against your total success!” says Holmes.

Holmes also encourages others to understand that their lives are valuable and choices need to be made carefully.

Holmes will be at Greenville Junior-Senior High School the afternoon of Nov. 20, then at Quincy Junior-Senior High School on the morning of Nov. 21, ending at Chester Junior-Senior High School the afternoon of Nov. 21.

Due to his tight schedule, this trip he will not be able to make it to the schools at the east end of Plumas County. However, plans are already underway to bring him back next year.

Anyone with questions may contact Bruce Mulligan, PCOE prevention coordinator, at 283-6500, ext. 251.
