Hope Week Spreads Message of Resilience at South Hills Middle School

It is a week offering hope and inspiration to students at South Hills Middle School. Hope Squad members selected a special theme for their Hope Week this year. The theme is “Hope, Love, Rodeo.” in honor of their kick off assembly’s guest speaker, Amberley Snyder.

Ms. Snyder is a championship barrel racer, who in 2010, was in a car crash that paralyzed her from the waist down. She adapted to the injury and kept competing. Her goals in physical therapy were “Walk, Ride, Rodeo.” Now Amberley Snyder shares her message of faith and determination hoping to open others to the possibilities of happiness, regardless of your life situation. She motivates people to set goals in order to overcome challenges. She told South Hills students that the little moments in her life have shaped her into a successful speaker and a rodeo competitor.

Thanks to members of the South Hills Middle School Hope Squad for their work in lifting students, sharing hope and love during Hope Week and every day.
