Black River Falls Middle School hosted an all-school assembly on community service with Jefferson Award for Public Service honoree Greg Forbes Siegman.
Over the course of a 45 minute interactive session with our students, Greg used examples of people and characters from history, current events, comics and literature – as well as from his own story – to illustrate specific, concrete ways that our middle schoolers can make a difference in our community.
As part of his trip to the area — and reflective of his belief that learning is important at every age — Greg stayed in town after the assembly and spent the next two days working and learning on a nearby farm. In support of Greg’s belief that he can learn a lot from Wisconsin farmers — and as part of their ongoing efforts to make a difference in this state, a variety of major organizations ordered dozens of copies of The First Thirty (the book based on Greg’s story) and donated them to our school.
The organizations were Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (on behalf of Wisconsin’s dairy farm families), Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation, Wisconsin Soybean Association / Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board, Wisconsin Holstein Association and Legend Seeds. In addition, our local Denny’s ordered copies of the poster based on the book for twenty additional students.
On behalf of our students, thank you to these organizations for the wonderful end-of-year surprise for our students! To check out the book locally, please go to Black River Falls Public Library. To get signed copies, visit www.gregforbes.com/store
On May 29, Greg Siegman will speak at an assembly for BRF Middle School students. Greg is co-author of The First Thirty. The book tells the story of a young person’s efforts to use food and milkshakes as common ground to make a difference in the world outside his window. A former educator, Greg has served as Scholar-in-Residence for programs in different countries. He is a recipient of the Jefferson Award for Public Service and has been featured by media like Education Week and Good Morning America. For more information on his story, please visit www.TheFirstThirty.com.
