We are just out of a presentation by Mr. Drexel Deal, and it was really powerful and very timely. The interaction with Mr. Deal and the students was really powerful. He brought home to the students the importance of listening, and I’m sure the students took away quite a bit from the presentation. Mr. Deal drew on his experience letting them know why he’s blind today, because of the bad choices he made. So, I’m very grateful he came to address the students of grades 4, 5 & 6 and I am positive that today’s experience will leave a lasting impact on their lives. If there’s ever a time we needed a conversation like this, it was today.
