Here is what principals, teachers, and administrators are saying about Matt Wilhelm’s School Assembly Program:

"Not only were the kids captivated, but it really got to the social-emotional learning part that we are all working towards."

Dr. Matt Moreland - Principal, Pritchett Elementary

"In the 20 plus years I've been in education this is by far the best assembly we've ever had. Great message."

Dan Fox - Superintendent, East Buchanan School District

"We’ve had Matt out to our school twice now, and every time Matt has come out he has done an amazing job connecting to the students… The most important part is the message he delivers. The students respond to it."

Sarah Marxhausen - Assistant Principal, Princeton Middle School

"I couldn’t have asked for a better performance as well as a message to go to our kids. They loved it, but the message was the most important part. I couldn’t be happier.”

Austin Johnson - Principal, North Barrington Elementary

"The tricks were awesome, but the message was even better. He really came full circle with his message about bullying. He was outstanding, and I would recommend him for anyone.”

Steve Bjork - Principal, Yorkville Intermediate

"Great message. If you are looking for SELAS and a deep message on bullying, and how kids should respond to one another and life, this is the performance for you to see."

Marianne Biedrzycki - Teacher, Oak School Hinsdale

"We had kindergarteners through eighth-graders at the assembly. They were all thoroughly entertained and engaged through the entire thing... We loved that Matt came to our school and would welcome him back."

It's a challenge to find presenters for middle school students who can do a great job. Matt is the full package!!! His messages of anti-bullying and never quitting are delivered in a way that middle school students are able to easily relate. The BMX tricks are simply amazing and Matt's humor retains students engagement at all times. Of high value are the follow-up lessons that Matt has designed to help teachers and students continue the conversations after the assembly in the classroom. I highly recommend Matt to your school for an inspirational and engaging presentation!Raul Gaston, PrincipalJefferson Middle School, Villa Park, IL.

We recently hired Matt for our Indian Guides Christmas party and the show was perfect. A mix of humor, phenomenal bmx tricks and inspirational messages for the kids. Matt is very good at what he does and he has the ability to get the kids to listen. He gave out free t-shirts and posters and the kids really enjoyed the show. I would highly recommend him for school events and private parties.

We've had Matt at our school for six consecutive years. His message, coupled with his BMX show, provide an enriching experience for all students. He understands the developmental stages of his audience and adjusts his message accordingly. His stories and insight on hard work, persevering through learning new and challenging things/skills and being an everyday hero resonates with students. Matt has even taken the next step by providing videos and discussion points to be viewed after his shows that are good resources for morning meetings/classroom discussions related to bullying and friendship. Students love his show, which is why we will continue to have him back!

Matt’s program is engaging, fast-paced and filled with life lessons students can relate to. He is a dynamic speaker and entertainer that keeps students as well as adults wondering what story he is going to share and what message he is going to bring next. Students learn powerful lessons that they can talk about after the show is over, and that are much needed in today’s world. Matt is a Hero and role model that students look up to.

Matt's was THE BEST assembly we have ever had at our school! His performance was entertaining and his message inspiring. He tailored his talk specifically for the younger vs older kids at our school. He was also very pleasant and easy to work with, brought and set up all of his own equipment and followed up with us after the show with suggested classroom activities to drive home his message. We will definitely be looking to bring Matt back in the future.

Matt Wilhelm provided a positive message to our students while also entertaining them with amazing tricks. His personal stories of how he never gave up on his dreams tied directly into conversations that we have been sharing with our elementary students about "grit" and how they can show tenacity, perseverance, and determination everyday. I would highly suggest his assembly if you are looking for a way to kick off character education or a spirit week at your school. His high energy performance kept our students engaged and excited for a full hour.
