    I applaud Katie for addressing this subject, and presenting different perspectives. I can certainly understand Joy’s wanting to learning a skill that she can use to earn a living, and earn money to pay for the college training she wants. Very wise. Better choice than going into debt. I recall facing a similar situation when I was her age. For Roger, it is a great choice too. Congratulations to both! Thanks, Mike. It would be great to see you giving this same speech in high schools.

    Karen. Thanks for the nice remarks. As a recipient of the mrW Scholarship this year, I am pleased to announce this will allow me to continue my training and prepare a small business to be passed on to my children, grandchildren ect.

    Mike is a huge supporter of Skills USA and I fully support this as well. It provides students at the high school and post secondary levels to obtain recognition an support from many industries. May I suggest your school check into the Skills USA program and start a chapter if they don’t have one already.

    Mike, I searched for “rowe”, mrW Foundation”, “mikeroweworks”, “scholarship”, and “Joy Davidson” on Katie’s site and could find nothing about this. Oh, heck. Tis is from 2013. No wonder. Well, keep up the good work, in any case. We real Americans love what you’re doing, Mike.
