Mexico High and Middle Schools… Mexico, MO

 In Blog

Wednesday, Sept. 9 found yours truly back in his old stompin’ grounds: Mexico, Missouri. It’s been nearly a decade since I’ve been to Mexico, and a lot longer than that since I was getting my butt kicked by some Mexico Bulldogs defensive lineman, but this time going back to Mexico High was a lot less painful!

Thanks to all the high and middle schoolers for being such an awesome audience, for insightful questions and for accepting me into your school!

Special thanks to Melanie Richter and Susan Gheens for being such great hostesses! Also, thanks to the high and middle school teachers who stopped by after school at the faculty program – I’m so thankful there are teachers like you in the world!

And, even though I’ve already said it, my gratitude to Susan Gheens is just so vast… for being my very own English teacher when I was 15, and then the head of the school play when I was a senior. Some of my most treasured memories include you, Susan, and I’m so glad we’ve reconnected! Thanks for some awesome chimichaungas, too (I know I probably spelled that wrong… blame it on my poor English skills!)
