Kirk Douglas visits High Schoolers
The oldest Myspacer, Kirk Douglas, is at it again…. This time, he’s blogging about visiting Kirk Douglas High School, and the kids that are there.
I don’t know why a living icon, like Kirk Douglas, blogging makes me so happy, but it does. :-)

Kirk Douglas High School
Current mood: inspired
A few weeks ago, I made a visit to the Kirk Douglas High School. I am proud that they asked to name their school after me. One of my pet projects is to try to inspire young people to at least have a high school education. Then, I try to encourage them to go to college. As a small inducement I give every graduate a $500.00 check. When I spoke to the students I was surprised that they each gave me their personal pledge of what they wanted to do in life to improve our world: from volunteering in hospitals and local schools, to supporting our troops by sending letters and care packages. One student has agreed to help the elderly by volunteering at a convalescent center (I wonder if I inspired him :)
I am proud of the students of Kirk Douglas High School.
