Anti-Bullying, Autism Awareness Tour Comes To Isabella Co. School
It's called the relentless tour, and brings a college basketball star into local schools.
A former Michigan State basketball player continued his tour on autism awareness and anti-bullying in northern Michigan.
Anthony Ianni stopped by Beal City Public Schools Friday.
This tour began back in October and was launched at the state capitol with the help of MSU's Head Coach Tom Izzo and Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley.
Since the launch, Anthony has spoken at hundreds of schools across the state.
He talks about his difficulties growing up with autism and how he hopes his story will inspire others.
Anthony says, “I always tell kids to LYD which stands for Live Your Dreams. Because no matter what you go through in life, you're going to have obstacles and challenges that are bigger than you. And I've always told kids I'm 6'9″ and I wear a size 18 shoe, and I overcame obstacles that were greater than me.”
