Bobby Bugattii Jones shared his message with students at both Dell Rapids and Dell Rapids St Mary schools on Wednesday, September 14th. Jones spoke to students at St Mary High School at an assembly and then spoke to students at Dell Rapids High School later in the afternoon. The assembly at both schools was for students in 7th – 12th grade.
A native of Yankton, SD and former football player at Michigan State University, Jones shared his testimony to the students. Jones fell into the world of alcohol addiction after falling short of his NFL dream. In 2012 Jones found Christ after nine months in recovery and found a new purpose for his life. Now Jones is a speaker, singer, songwriter and performer. He shares his story of faith to motivate youth to make right choices for their future.
The Dell Rapids Connection group sponsored both assemblies. Dell Rapids Connections also held a free picnic cookout at the park at 6:30, with Jones performing at the band shell at 7:30.
