Good Morning Lion!


Welcome to another week with Lions Guide.  Here's what I've got for you:


Muster Review

Lions Guide Podcast Release - Next One Up with Matthew Hanna

Matt “Coach” Hanna is a proud product of public schools, who went on to receive a bachelor’s degree from the Johns Hopkins University in 2002. There, he served as captain of the men’s lacrosse team, competing in two NCAA Tournaments. Then, after a distinguished career in Major League Lacrosse, Hanna spent a decade in the education field as an admissions director and history teacher before creating his non-profit organization Next One Up.  Next One Up engages and serves young men ages 13-25 from some of the toughest ZIP codes in Baltimore, but share a similar purpose; accepting that the hill that must be climbed.  Matt and his team provide long-term mentoring and coaching to these young men in the classroom and on the field.


Matt and I talk about Matt’s life as a high performer, as well as, the importance to look back and help the next one up…


Thank you and looking forward to seeing you online or in session!


Talk soon,
