Dear Mr. Kelsey

I have collected autographs for over 20 years. When I was in college I started writing to celebrities and asking them what they would tell a class of elementary school students. Over the years I have gotten over 200 letter and signed pictures to my students. I think that by these very busy people taking the time to share their thoughts with students, it shows the power of education. I hope you enjoy my collection

Mountain Climber: Tom Whittaker

Not only did Tom Whittaker climb Mt. Everest, but he did so with only one foot. He was in a major car wreck and lost a foot. He still climbed Mt. Everest. His letter I think shows what an amazing individual he is. He says, “People that have abandoned their dreams will stand in the way of you achieving your dreams. Never ever abandon your dreams! Tom Whittaker the first disabled person to climb Mt. Everest May 27th 1989”
