How are all of my AWESOME Wheels for Ed kids doing? I miss you guys!
I want you guys to pull up a map of the United States. My teammates are on the road right now. We’ve been gone since Thursday, and we don’t get home until the 17th. This road trip takes us to: Brooklyn, NY; Phoenix, AZ; Salt Lake City, UT; Portland, OR; Sacramento, CA; and Oakland, CA. Can you find any of those cities on your map?
Now, pull up a map of Ohio. When I was your age, I was obsessed with the idea that Akron couldn’t be found on our classroom maps. The maps had Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland, but no Akron! I was upset, and I turned my anger into determination. I was going to put Akron on the map.
Is our city on there yet? Between everything you and I are doing, they need to have Akron on there by now!
Wherever I go, I tell people I’m just a kid from Akron. You make me proud to say that.
It’s tough being on the road away from my family and hometown but I feel good knowing that you guys are doing well. I hope you have a great week of school.
WE ARE FAMILY!!
