Congrats Class of 2013! and Good Luck!
The school gave us plaques from the Class of 2013 - very special!
or as we did on stage ...
we started coming up with a word from every
letter of the alphabet ... Awesome, Beautiful, Congrats, Dandy, Excellent, etc!
I gave GRC a copy of my books! Was very special to be
able to give them What's In the Corner? Since it released
June 4, 2013!
I enjoyed my time in Indiana. I will share more pictures of Whiting and my adventure back home soon.
I have not figured out how to post the audio of my speech; I may put the transcript out here another time.
Thank you again--George Rogers Clark High School and the class of 2013--it was great to speak to you and your kind words after graduation were very much appreciated!
GO YOU PIONEERS!!! Let's See You Fight, Fight, FIGHT!
