By  | 

ALLEGHANY, Co., Va. (WDBJ7) "Will you play back? C'mon folks, will you play back?"

That's speaker Dave Weber from Atlanta.

He was at Alleghany High School, where the entire staff of the Alleghany and Covington school systems gathered for convocation.

Weber went through his seminar, "Leadership Redefined," on Monday to help the educators prepare for the school year.

Weber says, "This is the second time I got invited back. I was here a year ago to help kick off the year. And I love these people. They're so authentic. They're transparent. They're real, and they desperately want to do the right thing for their students and their communities."

School starts in Alleghany County on Wednesday.
