Act with Respect Always Visits Duke University

NATIONWIDE — Speaking to What's Your 99?, the kindness you bring every day to others, Coach Rich Johns presented the importance of understanding yourself and that respect and kindness begins and ends with you, the individual. 

By stressing the word empathy and its meaning, one can have a more fulfilling life. You need to be 'looking' to see empathy in everyone you meet.

If one is empathic and kind your, 99 will shine through. 

Addressing mental health is a key component to AWRA and The Visible Project stresses the importance of always being kind. The kinder you are the more visible you become. 

"When you give kindness, it comes back to refresh your own daily mental health," Coach Johns stated. 

I want everyone to have a Solid 5 to go to. What is a Solid 5? They are the people who you can go to anytime, anyplace for physical and emotional support without judgement. 

“I always stress that I am a Solid 5 for each person in my presentation,” Johns said.

Coach Johns traveled to Duke University recently and presented to about 200 freshmen student-athletes who are a part of the Duke Freshmen Action Program. He traveled with three Saratoga Springs CSD students: Kelsey, Emily, and Conner McFadden, who traveled with their father Dennis, to help Coach Johns with his presentation.
