Wright Middle School inspires

Mike Ivey:

Just when you think the world is going to hell in a hand basket, a bunch of hand-written letters arrive from Wright Middle School students.
For the past several years, I’ve participated in the “School Makes a Difference” program where adults talk to kids about their career and give them a pep talk about learning. It’s not a big commitment — and the thank you notes from the kids make it well worth the time.
For example, Hope Blackmon wrote that my 15-minute presentation “really inspired a lot of us to start writing more and to try to get better at writing.”
