Author and Former Football Star Tim Green Gives Captivating Talk
Students in Grades 5 and 6 were treated to a talk by Tim Green, author, attorney, and former NFL player. Mr. Green spoke of being maniacal in everything he does. Reading is like weight-lifting for the brain, he said, as he told the children how he read while in NFL locker rooms waiting for his turn to sack a quarterback. Reading calmed his nerves and took to him to far-off lands. He is also a firm believer in re-reading books because you get so much more out of each reading. The most important message Mr. Green left us with was that everything you do is important in life, but your character is the most important of all.
