Comedian Matt Bellace speaks to underclassmen on substance abuse


By Maddie Lamonica, Business Manager

On Nov. 29 comedian and motivational speaker Dr. Matt Bellace spoke to the freshmen and sophomore classes about substance abuse prevention and the benefits of natural highs. For over 20 years, Ballace has been traveling the United States and Canada as a professional speaker and stand-up comedian. He is the author of “A Better High” a book in which he explores the four major natural highs and their benefits. In addition, he co-wrote the National Geographic Series “This or That” and appeared regularly on truTV’s “World’s Dumbest.” Rather than use what he calls the “scare tactic” Bellace utilizes humor as a tool for engaging students in these serious topics, which has proven more effective. His hope is to educate students these subjects but to do so in a humorous matter.
