Despite many obstacles, while growing up in a single-parent home in Buffalo, NY, Marc dreamed big and set lofty goals. His determination and relentless work ethic led to success in high school with hockey, football, and boxing. While on the path to becoming a professional boxer, Marc’s life took a drastic turn and his athletic career was sidelined for ten years. Then at the age of 31, he entered the wrestling ring and achieved fame as a WCW and WWE Wrestling Champion. For 14 years, Marc entertained audiences worldwide as “Johnny B. Badd,” “Wildman” Marc Mero and “Marvelous” Marc Mero – reaching the pinnacle of athletic success — and then lost it all to bad choices.

You were amazing. Our kids in both schools can’t stop talking already this morning about your program and how it touched their hearts and has inspired them to change. Staff has called, parents have called, kids are all talking about how you inspired them and what an impactful program it was. I can’t thank you enough for making a huge impact on our kids and being an inspiration for our students and adults in our buildings for them to make positive choices and change for the best! I hope we can connect and have you back again in the future, you have made a new friend, the Community of Seymour!
