A Little Housekeeping

1.   Tuesday and Wednesday I will again be speaking to students at Basehor Linwood High School. As always anyone that wants to join me in these classes let me know and I will make the arrangements and get you the times.

2.   The Partnership at and Major League Baseball Charities are still looking for coach and player nominations for this years Play Healthy Awards. If you know a coach or player that exemplifies the play healthy and drug free message in their words and actions nominate them for this award. Winners receive a trip to New York City, tickets to the Partnership Gala at Gotham Hall, $500 gift certificate to a sporting goods store, a plaque identifying their award and national recognition.

Here is a link to the nomination process and forms:

This is the real deal. I nominated Susan Mayberry a couple years ago and she was the national coach winner.

3.   If the notice to be with me to talk to students tomorrow and Wednesday is too short I will also be speaking to students at Shawnee Mission West on November 26 and students at Shawnee Mission East on December 6.

We are having parent/teacher conferences today at Basehor-Linwood High School from 1pm-8pm. So far I have met with 6 different families and his/her child. There has been 3 separate parent(s) with his/her student share that their child talked with them about your story!!! What you are doing IS MAKING AN IMPACT on kids. Like one boy said, "It's really made me think about it." And one girl who said, "Wow. What he said was so scary. That Mr. Grover was able to go into so much detail. I was like, Whoa! Her mother followed by saying, "I am so glad you are bringing in people who can share the real world." Two thumbs up to my friend, Ron!!! Susan Mayberry
