Can You Help Cultivate a Champion?

It is not often that you get to meet, mingle with, and have your picture taken with an icon. Recently I had that opportunity.

Last night I attended a small gathering of people (thanks to my wife, Jamie, and her company, Atria Senior Living) to hear Billie Jean King speak. Many consider Billie Jean King as one of the two most significant sports figures (along with Jackie Robinson) of the last century. Ms King spoke for an hour, answering questions and touching on a variety of subjects including:

It was striking and significant to me that out of the four He-roes or She-roes that she mentioned, three were teachers/ coaches (3rd grade, 6th grade, and 12th grade) and the other was former Olympian (and her childhood minister) Bob Richards.

Ours is an awesome job… with awesome responsibilities. Do you have the next Billie Jean King in one of your classes?

Amazing Night

Amazing Woman

Amazing Human

The following is the video that preceded Billie Jean Kings talk… I hope you can take the time to watch this five minute clip!
