As a an educator this Christmas, I cannot help but think about Malala Yousafzai the winner of this year’s Nobel Prize for Peace. She is the Pakistani girl who risked her life to attend school. Her boldness has led to subsequent violence by militants directed at schools and school children in Pakistan.
Her determination and grit to push the boundaries to attain an education is an inspiration to all of us that work every day to educate the children in our little corner of the world. Her commitment to education is the same commitment I see in the faces of staff members in our schools. Many thanks to the staff of the Owensboro Public Schools for pushing the boundaries as we educate the whole child.
