  4. I have learned a lot from Michael he taught me a lot about his speech yesterday it made me tear up of what He said and from him talking to us children. At the school has inspired me and I have learned a lot. And I look at him as a role model to me and I look up to him as a brother from a different mother even though he’s not a real brother to me and he will always be a brother in my heart.

  7. My husband and I taught in Shamattawa almost 40 years ago. We loved the community and wanted to stay longer. However, I was diagnosed with MS so we moved to the nearby town of Gillam, where we stayed for the next 35 years. My first year n Gillam, I pined for Shamattawa. We met so many fine people there, and they treated us well. Congrats to Michael!
