We have had some awesome experiences serving the Lord! Below are
some of the letters we have received from both those we have
worked with and from those whom God has touched through our
Out of 26 years as a children's
pastor Earl and Kimberly are one of the top two speakers I've
heard speak to kids! The way they interacted with the kids and the
staff was wonderful. He gave a message to the kids about the power
of the Holy Spirit and what it means. When I prayed with the
kid's, I saw them doing something that I have not seen kid's do a
lot - that is - they said they want more in their lives like
Pastor Earl emphasized. You want Earl and Kimberly to be a part of
what you are doing!
Steve Wood - Children's Pastor - First Church of the Nazarene -
In the 9 years of directing Upward
Ministries, Earl and Kimberly Long of Vertical Kids Ministry were
one of the best entertainers that we have had so far. Their
presentation of the plan of salvation was as clear and concise of
anything that we have had. The show was excellent in every way and
everyone was entertained.
Jonathan Howell – Upward Director at Central Baptist Church –
We needed to communicate to our
community and our church that families and kids mean a lot to
First Wesleyan. So, we invited Earl and Kimberly Long of Vertical
Kids Ministry to come minister for the weekend. It has been
fantastic. We had more children in our church than I have ever
seen. The Sunday morning service had more people than any since I
have been here. Best of all, a lot of people gave their heart to
Christ. Earl and Kimberly love kids and lift Jesus up. Give them a
call for your event.
Rev. Mark James - Pastor - First Wesleyan Church Easton, MD
Earl and Kimberly did an amazing
job at our Upward Basketball Awards Ceremony. Out of the 7 years
we have done Upward, they are one of our top performers. Their
message was very relevant to our crowd of over 800 people
attending. Out of the 24 that came to know Christ that night, one
of them was a 16 year old boy that I coached this year.
Michael Bates – Trinity Baptist Church – Jonesborough, TN
We booked Earl and Kimberly on a
recent Premier Christian Cruise. What a delight they were! The
kids loved them and the parents were entertained as well. I
recommend every church or organization to take a serious look at
Vertical Kids Ministry. With their unique ministry, they are going
to be in huge demand for the future.
Roy Morgan – Vice President of Premier Group
It is my privilege to recommend
Vertical Kids Ministry who has had a fabulous impact in our
district. They have ministered in our local churches, our large
gatherings, rallies and seminars we have had across the district.
They have had a tremendous impact on our children and adults. You
can’t go wrong having them in your district, your church or any
gatherings you are planning.
Dr. Harry Wood - District Superintendant for the Penn-Jersey
Wesleyan Church District.
I have had the joy of working with
Earl and Kimberly and I highly recommend them to your church or
any outreach event. You and all in attendance will be blessed!
Dr. Steve Wingfield – Founder/Evangelist of Steve Wingfield
Earl and Kimberly Long was a
tremendous blessing to our camp. We saw kids respond by masses to
the scriptural presentation of the word of God. Their magic, songs
and energy connected well with the kids. I highly recommend them
to your event.
Rev. Rob McDonald Dallas District Superintendant of the Nazarene
Church for Vertical Kids Ministry
We are always looking for ways of
reaching out to our community and becoming proactive in reaching
them for Christ. We invited Earl Long to perform his BAND
Together: No Bullies Allowed Assembly Program at our local
elementary school. It was very successful and it was an awesome
day for us. We passed out fliers invited the kids and their
families to come out the next day to see Earl perform at our
church. Saturday morning we had the church full and 85% of them
were from the school. Earl shared the gospel in his show and 7
kids received Christ. I encourage you to call them for your event.
Rev. Richard Loman - Pastor Mt. Airy Wesleyan Church - North
Earl and Kimberly thank you so much
for all you did this week at camp. Your ministry is 2nd to none.
Scott Coghill- Seyfert Holiness Camp – Birdsboro, PA
Earl and Kimberly of Vertical Kids
Ministry are a "must have" for your children's (or whole church)
ministry. High energy, lots of laughs, clear communication of the
Gospel! You won't go wrong with VKM!
Charlie Collins – Pastor – Denton Wesleyan Church
Vertical Kids Ministry with Earl
and Kimberly Long came in and did our Vacation Bible School and
they were awesome! They did a great show for us and we had over 70
kids make some type of decision. If you have the opportunity to
bring Vertical Kids Ministry in, don't pass it up. It is a great
Pastor Marc Price - Children's Pastor at Lynchburg First Church of
Earl and Kimberly did a fantastic
job. It was the best children and pre-teen camp we have ever had.
The kids really responded to the entertainment and the message.
Rev. David Pettigrew Children's Dir. of the Dallas Nazarene Church
Our church wanted to reach out to
our community and our elementary school. Therefore we invited Earl
and Kimberly Long of Vertical Kids Ministry to come and perform
their BAND Together - No Bullies Allowed at the school. We were
able to invite the kids to come watch Earl and Kimberly again on
Sunday night to see the Vertical Kids Ministry gospel show. I
highly recommmend them.
Pastor Stephen Smith - Pleasant View Wesleyan Church in Muncy, PA
Our church hosted Earl Long to come
in to our community and present two school anti-bully assemblies
called BAND Together: No Bullies Allowed. Both programs were well
put together and he kept the attention of the kids. After that we
were able to announce that we were having a kid's rally that night
at our church and everyone was invited to attend free. We had a
terrific turnout from the parents and kids of the schools. A lot
of these folks were new to our church and we think were unchurched.
Out of the group there were 11 kids who received Christ as their
savior. This program helped to open doors and build relationships
with our church and the two neighboring schools. I highly
recommend that you use Mr. Long to reach out into your community
and your schools.
Steve Saunders - Pastor - Albemarle Wesleyan Church - Albemarle,
Really great show, Earl was funny,
I loved the magic tricks, He had kids up to volunteer. He had kids
screaming, shouting and having a great time. But most importantly,
he had an altar call and had many kids come forward to receive
Christ. I highly recommend him for any Upward Event.
Rick Harrison - Upward Director at Cave Springs Baptist Church -
We had Earl and Kimberly Long of
Vertical Kids Ministry tonight for our Upward awards Night. They
had me jumping in my seat going ooh ooh pick me! Pick me! The true
ministry happened when the gospel was given and the kids went down
on their own. It wasn't because they were prodded, pushed or
pulled. They went on their own because of how the gospel was
presented by Earl. If you want your kids saying ooh ooh pick me,
then you need to pick Earl and Kimberly.
Mark Otey - Upward Director - First Church of The Nazarene
We had Pastor Earl and Kimberly
Long of Vertical Kids Ministry perform at our Breakfast with the
bunny. What an amazing job they did. They held the kids attention
and they presented the gospel. We were thrilled to have them and
look forward to having them back and you should too!
Kim Bobb-Pastor to Children and their Families
New Albany First Church of The Nazarene - New Albany, OH
We did our annual Noon New Years
Eve Countdown event at the Kingsport Town Center in Kingsport, TN.
We had Earl and Kimberly Long of Vertical Kids Ministry come and
present their magical ministry with hundreds of kids and parents.
Earl and Kimberly were phenomenal. The reaction Earl and Kimberly
got from the kids was the best reaction we have ever had from
anyone. How they kept the kids attention was incredible and the
magic and message was incredible also. If you have an event then
invite Earl and Kimberly Long. They will do a great job for you!
Brian Sumner - Program Director for 88.3 WCQR Tri-Cities, TN
We just had Earl and Kimberly Long
for our children's camp. They are a group that gets involved with
your ministry. They don't just sit in their room after they speak.
They did a great job with the kids and everyone loved them. You
should definitely book them.
Christine Mills, assistant director of the Penn-Jersey Wesleyan
We had a great outreach event with
Earl Long from Vertical Kids Ministry. We had dozens of kids from
the community that came and several of them gave their hearts to
Christ. It was truly a blessing to see the kids and their families
get involved and participate together. It was another blessing
seeing the kids respond to the word of God as it was presented in
a fun and very enlightening way for the kids to understand. I
encourage you to get in touch with Vertical Kids Ministry because
they will be a blessing to your church as they were to ours.
Pastor Mike McClung - Chi Chester Wesleyan - Chi Chester, PA
We have had Vertical Kids Ministry
with Earl Long to our church 3 times. Every time it has been a
fantastic experience. They do an amazing job connecting with
students where they are. The way they pull them in and entertain
them in a fantastic way and then transitions that through a
message that connects them and gets down to their level. We
encourage you to have Vertical Kids Ministry in to your church and
you can have the same results as we have had with multiple kids
coming to receive Jesus Christ for the first time.
Justin Leininger - Family and Youth pastor at Bethany Wesleyan
Church - Cherryville, PA
We had Pastor Earl and Kimberly
Long as part of our morning service today. It was a wonderful time
with magic and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. We used their
ministry as an outreach tool as part of one of our ministries.
They helped to bring in a large crowd and we had over 20 visitors
to our small church. We also had 4 children receive Christ. We
highly recommend them to come to your church to share their
ministry with you as well.
Scott Buchanan-Centerpoint Wesleyan Church - Laurens, SC
We had the privilege of having Earl
and Kimberly Long of Vertical Kids Ministry here for our Christmas
program. We are a kid friendly church and it was great having them
share the true meaning of Christmas. The kids were engaged and
they loved the illusions and puppets. It was a great day of
ministry. We were very thrilled to have had them.
Pastor Mike Saunders - Crossway Community Church - Willow Grove,
We enjoyed Vertical Kids Ministry's
Christmas Show. It was awesome, I loved the way they incorporated
the story of Christ and a little of Santa Clause but then closed
it out by sharing the real meaning of Christmas. I highly
Marc Price - Children's Pastor - The First Church of the Nazarene
– Lynchburg, VA
Earl and Kimberly Long came and
dazzled our students. It's not everyday that someone can come in
and do magic, music and a message that captivates and holds the
attention of teenagers for an hour to an hour and a half.
Earl read our student's minds, had flames coming out of a Bible,
made things disappear and card tricks that blew our minds. It was
fantastic! They kept us in stitches with their comedy. He then
challenged our students with a message that was relevant,
interesting and totally memorable. The spirit of Christ rests
among them. Vertical Kids Ministry is a wonderful ministry.
Josh Baker - Pastor of Youth and Outreach - McAdenville Wesleyan
We just finished a powerful week of
Vacation Bible School with Earl and Kimberly Long of Vertical Kids
Ministry. We saw many come to Jesus this week. You will be blessed
when you bring them in.
Pastor Mitch Wilson - Mt. Pleasant UMC - Mt. Pleasant, NC
We were very pleased with Vertical
Kids Ministry with Earl and Kimberly Long. We were not only
pleased with quality but also the total program. We were amazed
how the kids were drawn in and how Earl and Kimberly were able to
hold their attention for the 1 1/2 hours or more each night.
Most importantly the kids learned scripture and they received the
gospel each night. Every night we had a great response of kids
receiving Christ for the first time.
We had to do very little as a church to prepare for them and it
took a burden off of us this year to have them come. We highly
recommend Vertical Kids Ministry.
Don Avore - Associate Pastor at Trinity Wesleyan Church in
As a family, we discussed where we
wanted to go on vacation this year. We would go to either Disney
World or Black Mt., NC FCA Camp. Both of my boys said they wanted
to go to Black Mt. to see Pastor Earl Long and Vertical Kids
My children rank Pastor Earl Long up there with Mickey Mouse!
Their ministry is a blessing to our family.

Earl and Kimberly Long of Vertical
Kids Ministry did a great job for the second year in a row for our
Awana Event. It is money well spent!
Wayne Claybrook- Awana Commander - Calvary Baptist Church
Rev. Earl and Kimberly Long's
Upward presentation was entertaining as well as inspiring. The
children's attention was captured for the entire length of the
Upward presentation. The Gospel was very captivating for the kids.
I recommend l Kids Ministry to any Upward Outreach program.
Chuck Meeks - Director of Upward at Mineral Baptist Church
You guys did a great job. I got a
lot of positive feedback from my employees. The show was very
entertaining and kept my staff involved. Thanks for a great and
memorable company Christmas party.
Dianne M. Monforte- Black Box Network Services
Earl and Kimberly! Oh my, we have
been telling everyone about you two and how wonderful you are with
the children and especially how Kaleb was affected by your
ministry. You will forever have a part of our hearts. God was
faithful to take the talents He gave you and your heart's desire
and obedience to do as He called you to and made it productive to
the building of His kingdom. That's eternal effectiveness and I am
blessed to know you both. Know and recall often that God uses His
children who are fully submitted to Him, to His will and to His
purposes and you were a part of that. What great vessels you two
are! I pray that your ministry and it's effect on our son will be
a ripple effect that will reach astronomical numbers for God's
glory! It reached our hearts in a whole new level immediately!
Tim and Amanda West - Fredericksburg Wesleyan Church – Assistant
The show was outstanding. Out of
all of the entertainers that I have seen at our Upward program,
Earl and Kimberly Long gave the clearest presentation of the
gospel which is the most important thing. The show was great. The
kids were involved, engaged, cheering, laughing and having a great
time as well as the adults. We appreciate Earl and Kimberly Long's
Donnie Dehnke - Youth Pastor and assist. Director of Upward at
Central Baptist Church
Thank you so much for the wonderful
job you did at our church. The children loved it!! I even got
positive feedback from our youth, who are not the easiest to
please!! We had 44 kids come up at altar call. I would love to see
your show again!
Amy Whitacre, Children’s Coordinator

My 8 year-old grandson came to know
the Lord last night. He was so excited that he went home and told
his uncle that he got saved. Thank you for what you are doing.
Grandmother in Berlin, Ohio
I was amazed at the reaction from
my youth group. They really got into the fun, excitement and magic
show. The whole show was entertaining and challenging to my teens.
We had 9 teens receive Christ the night you were here. Now, that
is what it’s all about. Thanks for presenting your ministry to our
Michael Coleman - Minister to Students
Ocean View Baptist Church – Myrtle Beach, S.C.
I would highly recommend Rev. Earl
and Kimberly Long for any evangelistic endeavor involving
children. I very much appreciated working with the Longs. They
have a very well prepared and executed ministry for children. It
contains a variety of visual stimulants to keep the children
focused and attentive. They present the message of salvation in a
way that is clear to children without going into too much detail
that would overwhelm their young minds. They worked with our
children from kindergarten through 5th grade. I felt that because
of their presentation, the gospel message was made clearer to
children who might not have understood it until the time that they
These two fine people have the ability through God to lead many
children to Christ and it was my privilege to experience their
Nancy Mishler, Children’s Ministry Chair of Wingfield Crusade -
I don't know what you said last
night but all three of our kids came forward to receive Christ.
Our two boys really needed it. Our daughter has been reading her
Bible all day today. She has read through six chapters already.
Thank you Pastor Earl for encouraging her. Keep up what you are
doing. It is making a difference in our kids’ lives.
Mom in Flint, MI
Earl and Kimberly Long did an
outstanding job weaving Scripture, the gospel message and the use
of their magic, music and puppets throughout their presentations
for our children’s camp this past June. I highly recommend their
ministry to anyone seeking a great camp ministry to children. They
desire to serve and reach young people for Jesus Christ. The ten
children I brought from my own church really enjoyed their
ministry and took home a clear presentation of the Bible saving
message of Jesus Christ. They were well rounded and had much
variety on a level kids could understand.
Rev. Jerry Ernst - Kidz Kamp Director
West Virginia/Shenandoah District of The Wesleyan Church
I loved coming out each night to
help with the Crusade. Every night it felt like I was coming to a
children’s worker conference. I got great ideas each time to use
in our children’s program at our church
Children’s Pastor – Central Christian Church - Bristol, TN
Recently our congregation had a
youth outreach event for our community that we called “Kid’s Day”.
We invited Earl and Kimberly to come and be a part of our event.
Earl and his wife put on a fun, interactive, Christ centered
learning experience through magic, comedy, puppets and music that
the kid’s are still talking about. They ministered to our few kids
with the love and enthusiasm of ministering to a thousand of their
own. I highly endorse their ministry because I have seen their
hearts. I assure you that your children will enjoy and remember
what they learn through Vertical Kids Ministry.
Jamey Roberts – Youth Pastor
Way of the Cross Church in Gray, TN
The following is from a mom of one
of the kids that came forward to receive Christ.
Jeremy was one of 37 kids who asked Jesus to be their savior that
Dear Earl and Kimberly,
I want to tell you how much I appreciate you and the work you are
doing for the Lord. You have done a wonderful job this week
teaching the children about Jesus and His plan of salvation.
One of those lives that was touched is our nine year old son,
Jeremy!!! One of my prayers in remembering the Kid’s Crusade was
that Jeremy’s heart would be touched and that he would know Jesus
in a personal and special way. Praise God that has happened
through your ministry!
Thursday evening Jeremy was telling me he learned about Adam and
Eve and sin the night before at the Crusade. He also went on to
say that we sin and that we need to ask Jesus into our hearts. He
was very excited about the idea that God writes our name in a book
in Heaven when we come to Him and pray. He wondered if he had ever
done that before. I told him no and he said he wanted to go up
front and do that the next night. He wanted to pray that prayer
with you. On the way home that evening he made the comment that he
felt so happy inside because he had given his heart to Jesus! What
a joy for us as parents to know he has taken that step in his
Love and prayers – Julia, Friendsville Maryland
Thank you for a wonderful 3-day
J.A.M. FEST! We had a total of 698 in attendance during the 3 days
and 48 children asking Jesus into their heart for the very first
time. WOW! That is a success! You both did an awesome job of
getting the children's attention thru illusions and games and then
bringing them the Word of God. Thank you Earl and Kimberly for
using your talents for the Lord. Your love for God and children
shines through your ministry. I highly recommend Vertical Kids
Deborah Jones - Children's Director, River of Light, Warner
You guys are great. Our VBS went so
well this year that I told our children’s director to book you now
for next year.
Pastor at Kedron Baptist Church – Gladys, VA
On behalf of Reynolds Memorial
United Methodist Church, I would like to thank Earl and Kimberly
for their direct faith in God. Earl and Kimberly came to Reynolds
Memorial on a Sunday night that was difficult for them. They were
both sick and probably didn’t feel like being there. They kept to
their word, came to the church and lead a wonderful youth and
children’s service. That night, we as a church had 3 responses
from students that were recommitting their lives to God.
Their message was very creative in the fact that they used
scripture to center around their total act for the evening. I know
personally that Earl and Kimberly live by faith and long to see
the passion that is from Christ spread through out the Tri Cities.
It was an honor to have Earl & Kimberly Long to minister at
Matt Cumbow - Minister of Children & Youth - Reynolds Memorial UMC
- Bristol, VA
Thank you for your excellent show
and willing spirit. Our kids and families loved your style and
tricks. The gospel was presented very clearly. God was working! My
son said to me the next day how much he liked the show. His praise
meant a lot to me. For an eight-year-old boy to love the tricks
and your message and want to see you again is invaluable.
Tom Bier - Pastor - The Journey Church – Johnson City, TN
I received your DVD promo from a
friend who got it from another friend. I fell in love with your
ministry by watching you. I am so glad our church got you in for
our Easter Egg Hunt outreach.
June Gouch - Marvin's Chapel UMC – Sulpher Springs, TN
Thank you so much for your gift of
time with the only program of its kind in our community and in the
communities around us. Your relationship with Straight Street
draws teenagers into an environment that is healthy, safe, loving
and wholesome for all who choose to enter the center. In giving to
them this may be the only experience that might lead them into a
relationship with Jesus Christ. We are truly grateful that God has
blessed us with such a "gift" like you. We are ever thankful for
your commitment as you serve the Lord here at Straight Street

The kids all loved you at the
birthday party. You did a great job. My five year old woke up in
the middle of the night laughing and said he had dreamed about
something funny you did in your act.
Kimberly and Earl Long came in and
set up all by themselves. They interacted with the kids, brought
them up on stage, they had a great time and it was a very easy

The birthday party was beautifully
done by Earl and Kimberly Long. The facial expressions on the kids
said it all. The kids were into it and were very interactive.

I am writing to thank you for your
willingness to come to our bookstore to assist with our Kids Day
Celebration a few weeks ago. I know that we did not give you much
notice, but you were more than willing to fit us into your
schedule and then drive four hours to help us have a successful
I am not a very creative person so I seek out those who have the
talent and resources that I lack, that together we can answer the
call to reach the lost for Christ as well as encourage the saints
as they attempt to fulfill their call from God. It is good to know
that one of the resources that I have to call on is Vertical Kids
Ministry, especially when the need is to entertain and challenge
children. I know that this is where your heart is and it shows in
your ministry to children of all ages.
The thing that I appreciate is that you come prepared, with
everything you need, and I can just turn the kid’s ministry over
to you and walk away knowing it will be done the right way. You
know how to catch the children’s attention, entertain them for a
while and then present the Gospel to them in a way that they
Another benefit to having the two of you come is that you provide
a variety of ministry including Puppets, Christian Magic and
Illusions, and Balloon Sculptures. The way you get the children in
the audience involved helps to keep their attention while reaching
a wide range of ages.
I certainly intend to call on you in the future and would
recommend your ministry to others. May God continue to bless you
as you follow after Him with all you heart!
Jim Whitaker – President- New Life Christian Stores - Lynchburg,
Hi, I was at Mountain View Baptist
church last night and saw you perform. I wanted to say thank you
for the joy you put in my little girl's heart. All she did was
talk about what a great time she had. Best of all she was one of
the little ones who got saved last night. I am very thankful of
you for showing and teaching her about Jesus. She is very proud to
have been saved. She is 5 years old. Again I just wanted to say
thank you for showing her the way to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jerry Clemons, Tina Lowe
I had a great time during Family
Camp at Table Rock Wesleyan Camp! My grandsons couldn't stop
talking about all the things they learned. Both of them have been
practicing their magic tricks. Most of all, Earl I appreciate the
lessons that you brought each night on how to become a Christian
and live the Christian life. You inspired me and my grandchildren
and you are now on my prayer list. Keep growing in Christ and
doing his work.
Rita Belcher – Helper during Family Camp
The VKM program was a WONDERFUL
addition to our 100 Year Homecoming Celebration! I enjoyed
watching the kids faces light up with amazement with each
presentation. Thank you for allowing so many kids to be involved
in your show. My heart was so full as little Isaac Cook came to
know the Lord on this special day. It is with confidence that I
recommend your program to the young and “young at heart” like
myself. The smile on my face was only a reflection of the many
smiles on the children’s faces. I was so pleased how you keep
their attention for the entire show. How amazing! Any group small
or large would benefit from your ministry. May the Lord bless you
and continue to allow you to spread the gospel through such unique
Joy L. Bryant - Executive Director Alumni and Constituent
Relations - Southern Wesleyan University
I want to thank you so much for the
way you minister to not only the children but also to the adult
volunteers. I really enjoyed every evening when you had fun with
the children. Most of all I liked the way you brought the plan of
salvation to them in a plain and simple way. May the Lord really
bless you both. You two did a wonderful job.
Dorothy Yoder – Volunteer at The Wisp Crusade - Mc Henry, MD
Two years ago you came to our
church. When you gave the gospel invitation my then 6 year old
twins went forward. I thought at first they may have thought they
were volunteering for a magic trick. But since that day, I realize
that they made a real commitment to accept Christ and they have
been growing ever since. My kids’ salvation started with the
message you brought during your show. Thank you very much!
Debbie – New Journey Fellowship - Kingsport, TN
Pastor Earl and Kimberly are
excellent professionals and their entertainment was beyond
expectations. They have a heart for God and a passion for

at engaging young people in the gospel. We have used them for 3
years straight at our Fellowship of Christian Athletes Camp.

Travis Wells – Kid’s Camp Counselor
Thanks for coming to Grace Bible Camp. As a counselor, I learned
so much from you. It was refreshing to hear a children’s
evangelist use more up to date technology and methods that kept
the kids attention. You guys teach so well and are very good at
using magic, puppets, balloon twisting, story telling and juggling
to share Christ with the kids. I just love you guys.
Craig Landes – Kid’s Camp Counselor
Thank you for such a wonderful
program you provided for our children while we celebrated the
Dedication of our new building. You had to travel far and
accommodate to our scheduled events. Thanks for your flexibility!
Our kids are still talking about the show on Sunday, they had such
a great time. Our church is praising God for the 29 kids who
received Christ, and for the seeds planted among the other 100.
Your show is entertaining, with a great message of hope and
You have blessed us immensely, may God continue to use you two to
glorify and honor Him in such a creative way! We look forward to
having you here again.

function, camp function or an Upward Presentation. They have a
The show was received so well by the kids, the parents, the
families, the church family and being an adult it was so
entertaining to us as well.
The gospel that they shared is not just something they said but
something they live.
Amanda Dehnke - Volunteer with Upward
We loved having Earl Long come and
present his Winter Wonder Reading show with magic and puppets. He
encouraged us all to read by keeping the audience engaged the
whole time. He had something for the kindergartner all the way to
the fifth grader. It was a wonderful time being excited about
reading. Thanks Earl. We will surly have you back!
Ruth Ann McCarthy - Paul Munro Elementary Librarian
Wow! Our students just participated
and enjoyed an amazing anti-bully assembly called BAND Together:
No Bullies Allowed by Earl Long. The students left with many
excellent anti-bullying strategies. This is a fantastic program
and I highly recommend it to raise bully awareness in your school.
