April Speaking Engagement in New Orleans

I received word that I will be presenting at the 108th NCEA (National Catholic Education Association) convention and exposition that will be held in New Orleans in April! The session will be co-presented with Lonnell Battle (the English department chair) from Paul VI High School in Virginia. This Catholic high school has my book as required reading for incoming freshmen. We will share our project using "Last To Leave Home" that led students to a better understanding of those with special needs.I think my brother Mark is helping me get the word out about his life, bringing more acceptance for those with special needs.
