Motivational Speaker Comes to Wilkinsburg High School


On Thursday, March 11, 2010, Wilkinsburg School District will welcome internationally renowned motivational speaker Milton “Bigg Milt” Creagh, one of the most highly demanded speakers for teens in America. Mr. Creagh will deliver his dynamic anti-drug/violence message during two separate presentations to students in grades 5-8 and 9-12. He will address grades 5-8 from 9 to 10:30 a.m.,  and grades 9-12 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Both presentations will take place at the Wilkinsburg High School Auditorium.

Best known for his hard-hitting, inspirational talks to high school students, Mr. Creagh speaks to more than 200,000 young adults annually, and has spoken in 49 states, as well as Canada, South America, Central America, the Caribbean and Africa. Mr. Creagh’s approach to spreading his message is unique in that he utilizes the medium of hip-hop music, which he says has too often been used to promote a pro-drug usage message among young people. To be able to compete with the negative messages of some hip-hop artists, Mr. Creagh enlisted the help of top-notch producers in the hip-hop industry to create music that would appeal to young people, while educating them on the dangers of illicit drug use.

Mr. Creagh’s appearance is part of the district’s ongoing efforts to provide a safe, drug-free environment for students. To ensure that Mr. Creagh’s message extends to the greater community of Wilkinsburg, the district is inviting all parents and several community leaders and groups to attend the event.
