Motivational speaker Jeff Yalden signs a shirt with the message, “Anger is like pee in your pants; everyone can see it, but only you can feel it!” Yalden met with students and signed shirts following a presentation at Artesia Zia Intermediate School Tuesday morning. Yalden, along with several members of the U.S. Attorneys Office, gave a presentation on behalf of the New Mexico Gang Task Force that focused on encouraging students to make good decisions and to stay away from gangs, guns and drugs. Yalden said he felt the presentation was successful and the students were receptive of the message being delivered.
