JacQueline Roe, Author Visit

Mrs. Jacqueline Roe, author of Beyond the Tower, came to GSES to speak to all 2nd-4th grade students on April 2nd. She inspired us all with her determination and strength not to give up on her dream of becoming an author. even though she had a debilitating sickness throughout her teenage years which caused her to miss years of school, she managed to finish high school as well as go to college. She quoted Winston Churchill and told everyone about how his father told him he would never amount to anything in life. Despite that, he became one of the most powerful leaders in the world. What a wonderful life lesson on perserverance! Thank you Mrs. Roe for your time and wise words.
