CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A motivational speaker was on hand Friday to help improve spirits at Carolina Beach Elementary School.
Chad Porter has told his life story and given countless speeches around the country for years.
He lost one of his legs in a boat accident when he was a teenager. He says that even if just one person feels better after hearing his speech, it is all worth it.
It’s just nice for them to hear a story that’s unlike their own and a little bit different,” Porter said. “Just to kind of help them stay positive through all that’s going on right now. Just keep sticking with it. It won’t last forever. Hopefully that happened today.”
Porter lives in the Cape Fear and says it feels good to give back to his local community
