The Spirit System in Action: A Note From a Valued Customer

Nothing makes us happier than happy customers (and happy students). We recently linked arms with John Dunlop at Portage Central Middle School to implement the IHT Spirit System schoolwide for every one of his 420+ students. John has been working as a Physical Educator for over 23 years and has helped thousands of students across various age levels build lifelong health and well-being principals during his tenure.

Read John’s letter below and feel free to share your thoughts on his experience in the comment section.

Thank you, John.
