I just received a package from Andrews Academy, the school that participated at my location in the Ben Carson videoconference on Monday. It included a picture of the event along with thank you notes from all of the students who participated! Here’s a sampling of their comments:
- It was an awesome experience. And now I know that you don’t have to be “top” of the social part of school, but academically!
- I was very inspired. I now know that I can do anything I put my mind to. I’m going to start reading more!
- I really enjoyed the interview with Dr. Carson. He was really down to earth with a lot of helpful advice.
- I really liked that he answered our questions in a way we could understand.
- It was so great to learn about how Dr. Carson became who he is. It’s very inspiring to us high school students.
- Thank you for letting us be able to learn something from one of today’s great people!
- I really heard a lot of things that I needed to hear.
- Thank you for the stories. I really needed some inspiration.
- This was an amazing experienced and I will never forget the things the Dr. was talking about.
- The videoconference with Dr. Carson was an incredible experience – to be able to listen to a man who’s gone through so much, and done so much for others, was inspiring!
