I’m a big supporter of education because it’s made such a positive impact on my family members in their youths and adult careers. My dad is a retired superintendent, my mom devoted most of her life to Hinton Public School and special education, and my wife works as a special education director and school psychologist. When I was in school, I had some excellent teachers who encouraged their students to achieve and others who weren’t so good. There will always be some teachers who have a greater impact on you than others. Those teachers can plant a minor nugget into your head and encourage you to develop it through further education. I came from a rural area where there were a lot of closed-minded people. Luckily, BECOMING INSPIRED THROUGH EDUCATION HAVING THE RIGHT TEACHERS CAN TAKE YOU A LONG WAY

those weren’t my teachers. When I got into the upper grade levels, many of them opened my mind to the possibilities available to me. There were hardly any lawyers in my area when I was going to school, but my teachers planted the nugget in my mind that through higher education, I would see what else is out there and achieve my dreams. My football coaches also influenced me to develop a strong work ethic. Sometimes life can be very painful, but if you persevere, you can reach your goals. Everything I learned in school from my teachers and coaches helped me to pursue a professional degree. There are many people who enter college with one intention but end up dropping

their initial major and moving on because they don’t know what they’re looking for. My great teachers taught me that what I pursued would become significant once I started looking for a career. And now I see how their impact on me produced a trickle-down effect. Today I have an impact on people’s lives by helping them, because that is the profession my teachers’ influence led me to. It’s one of the reasons why I’m so excited about watching Addysen go to school. There are great teachers, staff, and administrators at her school. They all sincerely care about the students. Even though she’s just going into the third grade this year, I can already see the impact her education is having on her — she loves the whole experience. I’m excited to watch Addy take these steps, just as I did. Watching her reminds me of how important school has been for me and will be for her.
