I think this wall began as a starting point for his passion outside of education -- photography. And just not any photo can make the wall. You see, the wall in his office is filled with many proud moments of his career at Milford High School. However, his wall is so much more...his wall tells stories. His wall in an inspiration.
The focal point of the wall is Steve Job’s quote:
I do not know every single story after high school, however, the stories I do know of, the students in the photos are making the world a better place. The All-American basketball player. The All-American wrestler. The students on mission trips. The students who have received their college diplomas. They still pursuing their dreams and aspirations. They are leaving their mark on the world and making a difference.
What you don’t see, the people in the background, the one's who encouraged, who inspired, who dared these students to dream. We don't see those people who held these students accountable, but without them, some students may not have reached their goals. Those in the background, they are genius.
Where do you fit in? Are you in the photo or are you in the background?
I believe this wall cannot be ignored. We all see the world differently. However, all of us are genius. All of us can change the world.
