Author visit to Mount Vernon
We are pleased to announce that Tim Green, professional football player, lawyer and author will be visiting the middle school on October 28th from 10:30-11:15. Students in grades 3rd - 7th will be attending the talk. Tim delivers a powerful message about the importance of education, reading books, and good character—even though his own childhood dream was to become an NFL player—he had another dream equally as powerful to become a writer. He now urges kids to put school before sports and to think about success in terms of personal relationships and kindness rather than fortune and fame. Coming from an athlete who realized his dreams of becoming a college All-American and signing a first-round draft pick million dollar contract, his message is highly motivational.
