Madison would like to welcome Mr. Keith Wheeler on November 20th. Mr. Wheeler has a deep history here in Seattle, and will be sharing his story of triumph through adversity and how education has impacted his success as a father, teacher, school administrator, author and now motivational speaker. Mr. Wheeler’s visit also includes an essay writing contest (students can pick up essay contest details from Ms. Riach). The essay's theme will be:
“Explain the importance of education. How can achieving a quality education (beyond high school) prepare you for a successful career, family and overall life (in the future)?”
We are looking forward to having Mr. Wheeler here at Madison. A big Thank You to our ASB for helping to make his visit possible.
Essay contest participants will be eligible to compete for this prize--cool Beats headphones!
Due date for the essay contest is Wednesday, November 18th. Turn in essays to Ms. Riach. Remember, this is a sample of your best writing.

There is no need to create a new social media account to fulfill this contest requirement.
