Ron James, a motivational speaker, will speak to the Spring Grove community on the power of choices in life.

James spoke at Spring Grove Area High School in October and was so well received that the district is inviting him back to speak at the intermediate and middle schools in the district on Monday. The district asked James to speak again that evening, but this time for the public.

James will speak about the power and impact of choices, a theme from his book, "Choices: Lessons Learned from a Repeat Offender." According to a news release sent by the school, his message that evening will focus on how parents and other adults in the community can encourage young people to make better choices. He will specifically focus on the alcohol and drug epidemic in local communities, the release said.

His book follows James through his 25-year stint in prison and his life of crime, according to his website. The book will be available for purchase at the presentation.

The event will take place at 6 p.m. Monday at Spring Grove Area High School, 1290 Roth's Church Road. The presentation is free to the public.
