What Students Are Saying

“I’ve removed masks. I’ve set goals. Five Star has changed my life. I strive to live a 5starlife. I never used to work or do chores, now I actually have goals…I’ve changed. I’ve been through peer pressure. I know how hard it is. 5star has stopped me from saying yes to those things! Thanks 5star!”  -Five Star Student

“The most helpful thing I’m going to leave with is knowing that if I set my mind to do something, I can accomplish it. I started the year off with D’s & F’s, but now I have A’s, B’s, and C’s, thank you.”  – Megan

“You have helped me in my life so, so, so, much I am fully healed and I feel brand new all over again because when I 1st came to 5star I was depressed everyday & sometimes thought, “Why am I alive??” Then, the last week in 5star I feel just totally reborn and like I belong on this earth again.”  – Dianne

“The absolute most helpful thing I have got outta Five Star is about the mask. I have stopped lying to my parents and now my parents can trust me. I feel like they really have come to trust me! And it feels so good to know that they can trust me to the fullest. I would just like to thank Five Star for bringing me and my family together again, if not closer!”  – Ashley

“Something that really helped me was to change my attitude towards school. It really got my grades up.”  – Carolyn

“Five Star has helped change my thoughts, which has helped change my life. I doubted I would like Five Star when the counselor signed me up but now -it’s a great thing that has helped me. I will leave 5star this year as a person who thinks differently about things and now I make choices.”  – Kyra

“I love everything about it. I look back to when I wasn’t in Five Star and it’s just all a blur. I can’t imagine my life without it. I can’t wait until the day comes that I can actually be a coach and make an impact on someone’s life. All I have to say is thank-you so much for changing my life.” – Amanda

“Five Star has changed my life so much it’s incredible! Five Star can change your life a lot and help you through all your challenges your having. Five Star is my life and will always be a part of my life. I want to be a coach so I can help kids with the challenges and see if I have any connection with them like I have now. I love all the coaches with all my heart.”  – Kelsey

“The thing that has really stood out for me this season is that I can go to school in the morning and be myself all day everyday. Since 4th grade I have always thought that there was something wrong with me or my family, but now I realized that that is who I am and I shouldn’t want to just try to hide it and act like the person that I’m not.” – Micah

“Thanks for the help because now I can control my anger against other people. You have made my life great.” – Brett

“The thing that helped me the most are the coaches. They have helped me with my grades, attitude, and etc.! I really love them. They have also showed me who I really am.”  – Kathlyne

“My coaches helped me through some pretty sticky situations. For example, cutting myself. They helped me stop, so now, I’m cut-free…except the scars.” – Aaron

If 5star hadn’t been there, I don’t think I would be here. I have learned to do what’s right no matter what & be myself. I’ve heard it several times but without 5star there to really get me involved in the right things, these values would mean nothing. Thank you so much.”  – Sara

“I used to be isolated, quiet, hiding in the shadows, and insecure. Now I’m more open. I spend more time with my family, and now I don’t care what others think, it’s what I think of myself that matters. This has helped me a lot. My life matters. I’m designed for greatness. I am Five Star!”  – Alyssa

“You have impacted my life in great ways, I have learned that my life matters, and I am a champ.”  -Tori

“I learned that being a little different is a good thing.” – BB

“Thank you so much for another great season. Before, I couldn’t tell anybody anything about my feelings, kinda like the Superman mask. But now, thanks to all of the great people at 5-star I can almost tell anyone. I finally took off the last layer of my Superman mask, and cried today. Thanks so much.”  – Kaitlin

“This year I have learned how building people up is better than bringing them down. Sometimes it’s better to stand for what is right not what other people think is right. Also, I learned that if we set goals and sacrifice what we want to get closer then we’ll be set for life.”  – Jonathan

“Being in Five Star has taught me to take off my Pinocchio mask. It has taught me a way to be able to own up to things and to just be honest! I don’t feel afraid of people judging me anymore, the only thing that matters is that I’m true to myself and that I can find out who I really am by not hiding in my mask.”  – PW

“For the rest of my life I will keep everything I have learned in Five Star in my life. But the most important thing I have learned is my life matters. I will do great things in my own way because I am different. I am me, the number one champion and I am not alone.”  – Wendy
