Many special speakers come into GFL classrooms, both former professional athletes and successful individuals in the business community. GFL also sponsors school

assemblies with panels of speakers.

NFL legend Rosey Grier

came to speak to GFL students. He told them the story of how he wrestled the gun from Sirhan Sirhan after he assasinated Robert Kennedy.
