TESTIMONIALS 

 

Hi Chris! I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your help preparing Joseph to get his license. I believe Joseph is going to be a good and and responsible driver. I took your advise! I went out with him for driving practices lots of times and it wasn't as scary as I thought after all!

Thank you!

Thanks for everything. We have been referring others to Spanky's. Your driving coaches were great; On time, helpful and encouraging. You made very smooth for Natalie to get through the program to her license! Thanks!

Thank you very much for all you did. Your instructors were great and Ryan had an enjoyable time. This is actually bitter sweet for his mom and I. He is growing up. Thanks again!

Thank you so much for all you do. We have been telling all our friends about your program. Our son really enjoyed himself.

I want to personally thank you for all you did with and for our kids in your driving program. Reid is the kind of kid who keeps his cards very close to the vest but he shared some of the things he learned during this program. Most importantly, he said the program changed him. I could tell he was deeply and positively impacted by all the things he saw and heard during your course. It makes me wish I could have been there!!

Reid had been hesitant in even starting to drive (he's had his permit since June) but now he's more interested and confident and a big part of that is having gone through your program. I think either his dad or I will get out with him this weekend and get started! Once we've been out several times with him, we'll schedule driving lessons via the site.

Again, thank you for what you do. It is an important service with the added benefit of positive, life-changing experiences for the kids who go through the program.

Sincerely,

Cindy

Pretty much all of Spring Hill knows about Spanky's. Get me some business cards so I can hand them out.

I just wanted to say hello, and apologize for not being able to come to your events. To be honest, my mother and I have been having a hard time lately, and I've been having to work a lot.

 

In the past little while, I've been faced with some tough choices and forced to take a step back and take a look at some of my values and what I stand for. It's been tough, but I'm finding that my new set of values and ethics are making me a better person, and I realized that a lot of that goes back to some of the lessons I learned from you while taking your driver's ed. Those lessons have become indispensable in the past year.

 

Keep doing what you do!

 

Hopefully I'll be able to get some time off and come hang at one of your shindigs!

 

God bless!

Chris,

 

So, you are pretty much amazing and you make my life better. I don't see why every teen doesn't go to your driving academy. Guess only the cool cats do. BAM.

Chris,

 

Your talks in driver's ed and you're way of communicating with young people has kept a lot of kids out of trouble. Everything you said has stuck with every person you have taught, me included. Everytime I hear the song "Live like your Dying" it reminds me of the talk you had with us in d.e. Keep doing what you're doing, you've changed a lot of people's lives.

Hey There,

 

A lot of the stuff we talk about in class really DOES make you rethink a lot of things, who you are friends with, just little choices that can impact your life in good and bad ways. I know for sure that I always think about things after walking out of that class! It's interesting, i swear you just have some impact on people, all the stories and everything.

Dear, Chris    

I am writing just to say thanks and that I truly believe that the things that you are teaching my peers is extremely important. Despite my often disruptive behavior in your class, I came away telling myself I really need to sit down and think about who I really want to be, as a person, and as an adult. Your words have driven me to change, be proactive, and want to make a difference. Since my completion of drivers-ed I have brought up many new ideas in the Youth United Way which I have been an active member now for 3 years. Thanks Chris for showing me that is is more important to be true to yourself than to constantly follow your friends.

 

Be a leader rather than a follower -> I live by this thanks to you.

 

Thanks Much, Ben Johnson

 Hey Spanky,

Hey Chris-

 

My name's Kelly and I just started taking driver's ed with you on monday. I think it was tuesday you mentioned the song "unwritten" by natasha bedingfield. it sounded really familiar so i went back and read it today. it's a really cool song that i've always liked. I also liked what you said about each year of your life is a new page. Each page should be inspiring, not just a "fun read" it's a hard statement to live up to, but i'll try. thanks!

Hey Chris,

 

I imagine this page is inspiring a lot of kids my age, and i think it has a very good effect on people. and jackie thinks the "guys page tips" is true, so yeah, i got that workin for me.

Thank you so much again for your advice for me and my dad. i am just writing to let you know that i did sit down with my dad, and i did tell him what was up, and that what he was saying and doing and how he was acting made me really unhappy. so anyhow....i sat down and actually TALKED to him about it and everything is going great. we are finally acting like we used to, we have fun together again. We watch movies, and he takes me out to practice my driving(which by the way is going good) and he has even laid off alot on saying things that unintentionally hurt. it is a huge load off of my shoulders and i have you to thank for it. so... thank you so much again from the bottom of my heart, and keep doing what your doing because you are crazy good at it!!

Whats Up Dude!

 

I had class with you today and you talked about doing those "difference maker" acts. Just so you know, me and my mom bought the lady's lunch behind us in the drive-through at Taco Bell. so she pulled up to the window and found out she was getting a free lunch. thanks for the inspiration!

Chris,

 

It's Laura R. I just finished drivers Ed with you today. it was one of the coolest experiences. Truly, I was going in there expecting the worst..and the most boring class ever. It wasn't anything close or even near that at all. Brock P and I were actually talking today (yeah..during class) about how amazing all of your stories were and how you are literally such an inspirational speaker. It's true. You have an opinion about everything and it's the coolest. Thanks for everything. Really. Now I can FINALLY do this permit and license thing. Newwww Car! I'll definitely never forget you (that's how much you impacted me - and I'm sure others as well). Take care and I'm going to start living huge..help more..and care. TAKE CARE!!1 –LR

Hey Chris,

 

I just wanted to say thanks for everything that you did for all of us. It was really fun havin' you as an instructor. Thanks for givin' me some different views on life, I really think about them alot and will never forget em. O yea, by the way..... I think it's a pretty well-known fact that you're the coolest instructor in the history of...ever!!

Thanks again for everything Chris, it was fun

Chris,

I am so impressed by your "call" to young people. You are always looking for ways to reach out to the youth (who so desperately need guidence). I love the way you use humor to talk about difficult subjects and it helps inpire young people to take a look at their responsibilty in this world.

 

Thanks for taking the time to set up this website and taking the time to pour into our kids.
