I'm No 'Sully' Sullenberger – but Tomorrow We'll Have Something In Common

Okay, NO. I’m not going to land a plane in the Hudson River on Tuesday, but I will grace the halls of now world-famous US Airways Pilot ‘Sully’ Sullenberger’s high school.

This just goes to show that great people CAN and DO come from anywhere!

I grew up and went to high school not too far from Denison, TX, just across the Red River in southern Oklahoma. We shared a television station (actually, two) in this area often referred to as “Texomaland”. Though, all those years ago, I never knew that much about Denison, TX.

According to the Dallas Morning News:

“It’s the birthplace of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. And Thomas Vulney Munson, a horticulturalist credited with helping save the European wine industry, spent part of his life here. “

Tomorrow, I have the opportunity to speak to the Junior and Senior classes of Denison High School. As my readers will already know, I’m a speaker with Monster.com’s Making It Count Programs, and travel the country delivering messages of success to students who will be the leaders of tomorrow….some of them have already done some pretty good work today!

Hmmm. I wonder if these students know the potential they possess….This one should be special.
