Thursday, November 18
Today I will be speaking at Indian Creek Junior High School in Mingo Junction, Ohio. Though I did not attend this particular school, it is now the middle level school of the former school district of my childhood. As such - it represented a homecoming of sorts.
Another uniqueness of the day was that it was to be my first all-school assembly. Middle schoolers in a gym on hard wooden bleachers are a much tougher audience than small groups in a classroom setting. I had my work cut out for me if I was to keep their interest as I talked about the Constitution in a gymnasium.
I did it.
