Ken, Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the time you spent yesterday with the students of Juanita Gap elementary school. I realize that this is your busiest time of the year for you, your staff and family, so to give those hours yesterday was a gift for which I can never repay. I know today that your talk of academics, athletics, the Olympics and life had a great impact on many of the 400 to 500 students who attended. If you impacted the life of just one young person, (and I am sure there were many more) I feel it will reap rewards for that student and for everyone who that student touches as they go through life. Everyone in the gym could tell you believed in the words you spoke not only in your head, but more important your heart. You truly are a Champion! You and your family are an asset to this community, and a leader of young people across America. This country needs more Chertow’s! Hard to find that quality any more. Again, thank you for all you did.
