“When Stephen Hill visited Cranford High School, he immediately grabbed the attention of over 600 students. His message had the perfect balance any school administrator could hope for, passion, sensitivity, levity, leadership, and goal setting. The students after the presentation stated they learned a tremendous amount from the presentation. Stephen Hill helped our students beyond what words can describe, he impacted lives.”

– Mark Cantagallo, Principal, Cranford High School

“If you are looking for an honest, informed and effective presentation on substance abuse and resiliency, then Stephen Hill is a wonderful choice. Stephen’s story resonated with our students because he is authentic and approachable. His engaging presentation was matched by his caring and generous presence when students sought him out after our assembly. I look forward to having him share his story at Seton Hall Prep in the years to come.”

– Chris Barnitt, Director of School Counseling, Seton Hall Prep

“I have to admit that I was inundated by emails from Stephen which I routinely deleted until one day last fall I decided to read one. I then went on to research Stephen and eventually asked Islip Middle School if I could come as a guest and see Stephen speak since they had booked him. Fast forward a year later, I just had Stephen speak in front of our entire school, 9th-12th grade, a total of over 750 students. Stephen is a natural speaker. Public speaking is his gift. He is honest and engaging. His very personal story of addiction and recovery is inspiring. Many students stayed after the assembly to speak to Stephen in private along with our social worker. I highly recommend Stephen. You will not be disappointed. We wish Stephen continued success in his pursuit to continue living a life of wellness.”

– Richard Lagattolla, Assistant Principal, W.T. Clarke High School 

“Thank you again for today’s presentations and for hanging back and speaking with students at our Red Ribbon table. Students continued to ask for you once you already left and many of them said they just wanted to say thank you for coming in and sharing your story with them. I cannot tell you how much positive feedback I have received from both students and teachers. We will keep in touch and I will reach out to you in the future for sure. Good luck with everything!”

– Gina Donahue, Student Assistance Counselor, Sleepy Hollow High School

“I would highly recommend Stephen Hill’s presentation. He shares his story honestly and openly. He meets the students on their level. Staff and students gave positive feedback after the presentation was over. Stephen also presented at a fundraiser for The Rubber Ducky Organization in Belleville and received a standing ovation. You could feel it in the room how people were moved by his story. We look forward to having him back in Belleville again!”

– Nicole McCrea, Student Assistance Counselor, Belleville High School

“Stephen Hill was a great addition to our Red Ribbon Week! Not only is Stephen a pleasure and breeze to work with, but his story is relatable and sparks necessary conversations about substance abuse and mental health. Teachers mentioned that students spoke of how they were impacted by the assembly and others even said the conversation continued at home with their own children who saw his presentation. Stephen made time to speak to both students after the assemblies and parents following the evening program, providing both honest and thoughtful responses to all who had questions. We’re looking forward to having him for the follow-up program in a couple weeks!”

– Nicole Tarr, Student Assistance Counselor, Somers High School

“Stephen Hill shared his personal journey to recovery in an educational and inspirational way to our students. Stephen was open about his history with drug use and addiction, despite the support he received from his family and friends. Stephen’s message was clear, where there is weakness there is strength, it all depends on your mindset. Students and teachers were welcomed to ask poignant questions during the Q&A portion of the assembly as well as after the assembly on a 1:1 basis. Thank You Stephen for sharing your story with our students and teachers!”

– Maria Sista, Student Assistance Counselor, Jonathan Dayton High School

“Thank you Stephen for sharing your story to help our students. We know you made an impact from the many messages we’ve received. The lessons you learned from early exposure to alcohol and marijuana and the unexpected future consequences are even more important during today’s mental and physical health epidemics. Stephen spoke live at our high school three years ago so we knew that he would connect well with our competitive student body.

We were amazed at how easy he made this year’s Zoom presentation. Stephen created our promotional materials and handled all registration and Zoom links. Even by zoom his presentation was lively and addressed many problems our students face, as shown by half an hour of questions afterward. Stephen’s Zoom program monitored the length of attendance so we could easily award students community service. We are planning follow-up Zoom discussions for parents and athletic team captains and highly recommend Stephen’s presentation for his story and how easy it was to work with him.”

– Jennifer DeSena, Executive Director, Manhasset Coalition Against Substance Abuse

“In my career as a prevention specialist, I have had the opportunity on a few occasions to see Stephen Hill speak to parents and students about his personal struggles with drugs and addiction. His story is real, compelling, and inspiring to all those who listen. Most recently, with COVID-19, I saw Stephen speak virtually utilizing the platform zoom. His story continued to be compelling as though you were watching him in person. At the end of his presentation, he allowed plenty of time for questions from the audience and shared additional resources. I would highly recommend Stephen Hill as presenter to bring to your community.”

– Kerensa Mansfield, Senior Health Program Coordinator, Ledyard Prevention Coalition

“Stephen’s story is one that informs his audience that recovery is possible. Well-spoken, engaging, and thoughtful, Stephen brings you through his experience while providing hope to others. He is organized, conscientious, and a pleasure to work with.”

– Hillary Dubois Farquharson, Chief of Communication & Prevention Services, High Point Treatment Center/Brockton Area Prevention Collaborative

“You never quite know what the reaction and impact is going to be when you bring someone in to speak with students, but Stephen was able to make a positive impression across the board.  Parents that came to his presentation in the evening told me their child said they had to come.  The best thing that can be said about Stephen is he will take the time to speak with anyone that has a question.  Our students appreciated a speaker that was “real” and made them reflect on decisions that they make.”

– David Drechsel, Principal, Madison High School

“Our students had nothing but positive things to say about Stephen. His story highlights all of the major issues that affect our kids today; peer and societal influences, pressures to succeed, the risks associated with substances and ultimately- the real-life consequences to self, family and friends. What really drove his message home was Stephen’s return visit to meet in smaller groups with all of our students, who felt able to ask honest questions. Stephen’s sincerity and openness was critical to the success of his message. We are so grateful to Stephen for sharing his story with us and for his dedication to his message of prevention!”

– Vanessa Morgenthaler, Student Assistance Counselor, Madison High School

“Stephens story could have ended much more tragically. Instead, Stephen lived to tell his story, and telling his story is what he lives to do. It’s remarkable how candid he is with the details in his speeches, and you can tell that he has every ear in the room when he speaks.”

– Wendy Gibbons, Program Director, Milford Prevention Council

“Stephen provides an insight into the actual lived experiences of what it looks like to live with addiction and the road to recovery.  He shatters the myths that so many people have in their minds about what addiction looks like.  His message is clear, direct and brutally honest. The message is of vital importance to those in the prevention field, those in the treatment field and anyone who is struggling with their own problems related to alcohol and drugs.”

– Karen Citizen-Wilcox, Project Coordinator, Beyond The Bell

School Assembly Speaker Drug And Alcohol Prevention

– Dr. Dean Schlanger, Principal, Manhasset Secondary School

“Stephen presented his story of recovery and hope to our middle and high school students. Our students were actively listening to every word.  After each presentation, Stephen made himself available to any students who wished to speak with him directly.  In small groups, students met with Stephen, and had meaningful dialogue on the topics he spoke of.   Throughout the day, both students and staff commented on how much they appreciated his message of wellness.”

“That evening, Stephen made a presentation to the community.  It was very well attended.   At the conclusion, parents commented that their children came home from school and talked to them about Stephen’s message.”

“Stephen is a young man who has a gift to share with his audience. He is sincere, honest, engaging and kind.  Stephen reaches students and adults alike, as he shares his story of finding sobriety, doing the next right thing, and being the best he can be. I highly recommend Stephen Hill to any school or organization that would appreciate his inspiring and powerful message of sobriety.”

– Craig Rush, Student Assistance Counselor, Midland Park Jr/Sr High School

“Stephen Hill—what an extraordinary young man with a powerful personal story of his battle with drug addiction for ten years!  Immaculata HS was honored to have Stephen share his story and insights with our student body and parents.  He engaged both audiences immediately with a sincere, clear and relevant message.  He fielded many questions after his presentation to ensure that students understood the hurdles he faced to reach sobriety today.  I would highly recommend Stephen Hill as a wonderful resource to speak about sobriety to all schools.”

– Jean Kline, Principal, Immaculata High School

“I am very sure I speak on behalf of all of our students when I heartily thank Stephen for spending his morning hours with us, both in a formal assembly and—just as meaningfully—in the informal chats afterwards, for which Stephen made himself available with our students. The sincerity, depth and power of Stephen’s story of hopeless addiction and hopeful recovery found form footing within many of our students, whether in their experiences of family, friends or general fears. Saint Peter’s Prep is grateful to have forged a friendship and collaboration for the years to come, and we both pray for and encourage Stephen to live well and strong in his days, months and years ahead!”

– John Morris, Dean of Students, Saint Peter’s Prep

“Stephen Hill presented to our entire student body and he had over 500 High School students rapt in their seats. His emotional story was one that our students could relate to and his impassioned delivery made the audience feel as if they were witnessing firsthand the ripple effects of the destructive decisions Stephen made as a youth. His practical message of hope, resilience, compassion and courage clearly shown through his presentation and compelled students to reflect upon their own values and the everyday decisions they make at this malleable time in their lives. Stephen’s approachability and amiability put students at ease and had the school “buzzing” all afternoon. We feel fortunate to have had this great opportunity in our school community.”

– Greg Smith, Social Studies Teacher/ HASP Director, Hastings High School

“Stephen exhibited a talent for captivating our students and engaging each individual with his story. Our students were enamored by his tale and Stephen offered time for our students to approach with their curiosities as he shared a courteous and judgment-free address to each. Stephen’s perspective enlightened our students and had a resounding impact on their perception of substance abuse; from early exposure and decision-making through rehabilitation and recovery. We are grateful for Stephen’s message and influence on our students.”

– Daniel Madden, Assistant Head of School, The Smith School

“Stephen Hill from Speak Sobriety is an excellent speaker. His story is moving and he captivated the audience. We brought him to Groton to speak to 500 high school students and the feedback we received was excellent. Having Stephen share his journey to recovery helped our coalition drive home the message that choices you make during youth can have both short and long term effects on your life and on your family. Stephen illustrated why prevention is important and that recovery is possible. We highly recommend him!”

– Carolyn Wilson, Coordinator, Groton Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention

“Stephen—My heartfelt thanks for your wonderful “Speak Sobriety” assembly today. Your presentation resonates so well with kids because you are so authentic and unassuming. You pack a powerful message with a very quiet punch. Our students’ interest was piqued as evidenced by their desire to speak with you afterwards. We are hoping to bring you back to meet with students in the more intimate setting of Health classes, and with team captains. Much gratitude!”

– Lena Galati, Assistant Principal, Delran High School

“You could hear a pin drop in our auditorium while Stephen Hill addressed our student body. Our middle school has had many assemblies in reference to substance abuse, but Mr. Hill’s heartfelt account moved our students towards a greater understanding of how drugs can have such a powerful impact. His rapport with his audience provides a comfortable environment for such a difficult topic.”

– Matt Clark, Principal, North Country Road Middle School

“Mr. Hill presented his real life experience with drug addiction and his eventual path to sobriety to our entire student body and you could hear a pin drop.  His unassuming demeanor, relatability and relevant story was the perfect combination to keep our students engaged. He shared his cautionary tale and ended with powerful words of wisdom to help guide our students to make good decisions in high school and beyond.  The message was positive and impactful. The feedback from students, faculty and parents was extremely positive and I would highly recommend having him to present to students and parents everywhere.”

– Carisa Burzynski, Principal, Elwood-John Glenn High School

“Our entire community truly appreciated Stephen’s candor and willingness to  share his story. He did an excellent job bringing us into his personal struggle and making it very real.  He was able to connect with our students without lecturing or condescending.  Several students stayed back to speak with Stephen personally, and many more have stopped in to my office to offer sincere appreciation for inviting him to campus.”

– Dave Pasquale, Dean of Students, Gill St. Bernard’s School

“Stephen had the students enthralled in his story before he actually spoke one word.

His genuine personality and presentation style had the students thinking and asking questions, his impact on them was instantly visible.”

– Jennifer Presing, Student Assistance Counselor, Passaic Preparatory Academy 

“We appreciate Stephen Hill coming to our campus to share his story of recovery so honestly. It was eye opening to students who had never heard a person in long term recovery speak. Stephen lays bare the all too common struggle with rehab, recovery, and relapse. He allowed time for questions and answers following his presentation and encouraged an open dialogue around a topic that is so often not discussed. Thank you Stephen!”

– Jessica Estok, CADC, University of Delaware, Student Wellness & Health Promotion

“I have had the pleasure of listening to Stephen present at two separate school districts.  Stephen does an amazing job connecting with the students.  Stephen’s story and his interpersonal skills allow students to listen, absorb and feel safe asking questions.  Stephen has the unique ability to reach students about a very challenging topic, during a critical time in their lives.  Stephen’s story and message is one that all students would benefit from hearing.”

– Linda Losquadro, Student Assistance Counselor, Washingtonville Middle School

“We so appreciated Stephen coming back to the school he once attended to speak with our 8th grade students. His message is powerful! Your choices impact who you are and what you become and if you make your choices while impaired by drugs or alcohol it can lead to awful consequences. Stephen is impactful as he relates to the students. They see a reflection of themselves in him and that makes his message more powerful than any I’ve seen before. Thank you for coming to our school and telling your story!”

– Brian Fox, Principal, Suffern Middle School

“Mr. Stephen Hill recently visited Washingtonville Middle School to speak to our 8th grade students.  He delivered a very powerful and honest message about his experiences with substance abuse.  He shared with students how he was first introduced to drugs and alcohol when he was in 8th grade.  Students were gripped as he lead them through his journey of addiction.  What made this so compelling for our students was that they could identify with Stephen in many ways whether is was that he came from a solid family, he was an athlete, and was earning good grades.  They could identify with peer pressure and a desire to gain acceptance by older students.  Stephen could have been any student sitting in that audience.  He graciously spent a lot of time with our students after the presentation to answer any and all questions.” 

– Teresa Thompson, Principal, Washingtonville Middle School

“Port Chester Cares had the pleasure to recruit Stephen Hill from Speak Sobriety to speak to over 1,000 students at Port Chester Middle School.

Teachers and administrators felt Stephen’s story was a powerful message that students could empathize with and encouraged them to make positive choices.”

– Trisha Alford, Prevention Services Coordinator, Herkimer County Prevention Council of Catholic Charities

“Stephen Hill has a story that is both a cautionary tale and hopeful for the future.  His account is detailed and students were captivated throughout his presentation.  Stephen conveys his account of addiction through his eyes, and by relating it to high school students’ day to day struggles, they can connect with and relate to Stephen.  In an era where information is readily available, students don’t want to be scared straight or lied to…which is why his straightforward message of “the choice is yours” resonates with students.  Staying around to answer questions and meet with students only solidified his message of Speak Sobriety.”

– Bryan Hodge, Assistant Principal, Herricks High School

“Stephen presented his story to our 11th and 12th graders. As soon as he started speaking, our very enthusiastic group became very quiet.

“Here at Lakeland, our upperclassmen were truly engaged by your story. While listening to the details of your life’s ups and downs, they instantly connected and were extremely interested in hearing your story through.

– Chris Cummings, Principal, Lakeland High School

“We were so happy to have Stephen Hill speak to our students and parents in our community.   Even as a small number of students attempted to distract from the presentation at the beginning, they were quickly drawn in to Stephen’s ability to connect with the audience.  Our auditorium of hundreds of  11th and 12th Grade students was captivated by his story that described his harrowing experience of addiction, journey to recovery, and his current gratitude for the things that his life of sobriety has rewarded him with.  He spoke to parents in the evening, with equal interest.  I had people follow up with me; teens, faculty, and parents, telling me how moved and inspired they were by his story.   Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend him as a speaker for both adolescents and adults!”

– Danielle Gamar, Student Assistance Counselor, Walter Panas High School

 “Stephen Hill presented to our entire student body. He sent a strong message regarding the vulnerability of our students to the drug problem that exists in our communities.

I am grateful to him for his selfless commitment to helping others.”

– Susan Solar, LCSW, Clarkstown South High School

“Drug addiction is one of those topics that is so important to educate the middle school child about.  However, it must be done in a way where students can relate without being too graphic or scary.  Stephen Hill spoke to three groups totaling almost 2000 middle school students and you could hear a pin drop.  Stephen made it a point not to preach but to develop an emotional tie that allowed students to draw conclusions about his story so they can make more informed personal choices in the future.”

– Christine Madigan, Assistant Principal, Felix Festa Middle School

“I was genuinely taken aback by the emotional and passionate anecdotes told by Stephen. For once I was able to witness an entire auditorium of high school students sit quietly in respect and awe.

– Lori Franchi, School Social Worker, Eastport-South Manor Jr/Sr High School

Stephen Hill came to speak to our 10-12th graders as a part of our pre-prom assembly series.  To say that his story made an impact is an understatement. Stephen did not come in and preach to our students.  He came in and presented his story in such a way that our students were able to identify and connect with his story.  Stephen talked openly and candidly with our students about his experiences and how his story unfolded and continues to effect his life today. You can tell that Stephen’s experiences made a huge impact on his life and where he is.  I’m so happy that my students were able to hear his story and I hope they will be able to learn from the hard life lessons he had to face due to drugs and alcohol.

– Laura Paniagua, Student Assistance Counselor, Wood-Ridge Jr/Sr High School

He shared his personal experience with the struggle of addiction and the consequences that it had on his life and his family. His sharing made an impact.

I would recommend Stephen to any organization looking to educate communities on drug addiction and prevention.”

– Janice Montague, MD

If he reached one person in the audience, the night was a success.”
