Safe travels, and come back and see us again. Keep in touch.” Mary Mininni – Music Teacher – Lakeview Elementary School – Phoenix, AZ  PS – Thanks for all the cool stuff too!  Pics, postcards, magnets, etc!

“I received rave reviews from students and staff to the success of the assembly.  Lizzie is a wonderful young lady that is capable of great things and it was my pleasure to speak with her and get to know her.  The students were energized, engaged and excited about your performance and message.  You (Lizzie) are an extremely grounded young lady with limitless potential to reach our youth with a strong message.  Keep up the great work, keep enjoying what you do and the sky is the limit to the number of kids you will reach. Thank you for sharing yourself with our school!  Thank you as well for choosing us and being awesome parents and helping us make the assembly a success.  Good luck to you and your wonderful family.  As you blossom into a superstar – remember us here at Lakeview – for we will remember you and your powerful message and gifts.  I will do my best to get the shirt in the mail on Monday.

As a father of 2 daughters, it was nice to see a young lady paying it forward to the next generation of leaders!”  Jonathan Rohloff – Principal – Sun Canyon Elementary – Phoenix, AZ

“Again, thank you so much!  The kids loved the program. It was a great message. So often people think we can truly stop all bullying and I don’t think that will ever happen as we are all human.  Letting kids know that most everyone has been and it is up to us if we give someone else the power to ruin our day. We need to teach our kids to stand up for themselves and for others.  We need kids to understand why it happens and they may help us to prevent more of the bullying.  Thank Lizzie for empowering our students.”  Kimberly Meehan – Principal – Centerra Mirage STEM Academy – Goodyear, AZ

“Your daughter is so beautiful and talented – you must both be so proud! Thank you so very much for including us in your busy schedule.

I had a PTA meeting last night and many parents were raving how their child was talking about the assembly when they got home and immediately downloaded her songs.

Here is a note from a parent I received last night:

I don’t know who’s idea it was for Lizzie Sider to come to our school or how you got her there …but thank you so much for letting her come. She made such a huge impression on Marshall, more so than any professional athlete he has met. What a fantastic young lady and I’m glad she could share her message with our school. Marshall can’t stop signing her song or watching her video!!!

Lizzie made a special appearance in St. Louis, MO while receiving the annual Hatebraker  Award in May 2014.

“I can hardly express all the gratitude I feel that Lizzie performed at Claymont last week. It still feels like a dream.  It was so so special in many ways. Getting the kids to learn the song was lots of fun. They actually fell in love before they even saw Lizzie in person! So did I!  But then, when Lizzie came out and started talking and singing, the love just poured out. Many of our students, when asked what was their FAVORITE thing all year at Claymont, listed “Lizzie” with no hesitation.  So, all I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart and all our hearts at Claymont.  Best wishes in every way. I have a dear friend in Nashville that I will tell about the CMA Fest. : ) I’ll keep following and raving.  We are so blessed to have been part of this amazing experience.  Also, my husband and friends and I loved the Hatebraker Evening, and Lizzie’s performance! More “wows”!”  All the best, Carole Lander – Principal – Claymont Elementary School – St. Louis, MO

“The excitement of the students was astonishing and I was impressed with Lizzie’s ability to connect with the kids. The responses she was able to get from them about why people bully amazed me.

We have a phrase that we borrowed from a men’s ministry that you do what is right and lead others to righteousness, “No Matter the Cost.” Seeing the amount of time and effort your family is putting into this cause it is evident that you all are willing to make a difference in the lives of young people, no matter the cost. Well done and God bless.” John Green – Principal – Lakeside Junior High – Orange Park, FL
