Valley Stream Central High School students were inspired by author Troy Lewis during a visit on Feb. 28 as part of the building’s Black History Month celebrations. Mr. Lewis presented to two audiences in the library media center throughout the afternoon, when he shared motivational thoughts and discussed his book, Gas Money. 

Mr. Lewis explained that the concept of Gas Money represents several people who helped him get to his destination in life by giving him advice and support. He shared stories about these individuals and how they impacted him. He also encouraged students to show the world their talents, strengths and what they are all about.  

“Think about where you want your life to be in 10, 20, 25 years,” Mr. Lewis told the students. “The only one who’s in control of that is you.”
