The PTA generously funded a special author visit for both middle school and high school students. Dave Roman, graphic author and illustrator, came to the Library Media Center and presented two sessions.
He discussed the creative process and how important it is to follow through with ideas, dreams and plans. Dave inspired scholars to think outside the box. He highlighted how some of the most bizarre ideas went on to become best selling, multi-million dollar ideas like the Ninja Turtles, which started as a graphic novel, too.
Through hard work, consistency and belief in himself, Dave told kids he laid the pathway to success. He continued by stating that failure breeds success and we often learn more when we don’t get to where we want easily.
Thank you, Mr. Roman, for a wonderful and inspirational visit.
