The Trident author to speak to students

Former Navy SEAL lieutenant and author Jason Redman will be speaking to Norfolk Collegiate's middle school students on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 8:30 a.m.

Redman, who wrote the novel The Trident, will speak with our students about his experiences as a Navy SEAL and how teamwork and leadership were key to his survival. While our sixth- and seventh-grade students were not required to read his novel as our eighth-grade students were, his powerful message of perseverance will resonate with all.  

Parents, guardians and family members are encouraged to attend as his powerful message will resonate with individuals of all ages. 


“…no matter how long and dark the night is, the sun, eventually, will always rise. Tomorrow always will come. It may not be the tomorrow you wanted or hoped for, but it will come. It is up to you to be ready for it, to shape it and make it what it will be. You can’t change the past but you can control your future as long as you’re willing to…”
