Jarrett Payton inspires Eagles to go the extra mile

On Tuesday, September 11, Jarrett Payton, son of Bears legend Walter Payton, visited Orland Junior High School.  He spoke with students about discovering their passion, giving back to those in need, and always going the extra mile.  Payton encouraged students to travel outside of their comfort zone to make new friends and try new activities.  The discussion led to a question and answer session.  Students and staff alike were ready to jump into the school year with a new passion and enthusiasm to "be better".
