Pulitzer Prize winning author and Ensworth parent, Jon Meacham, visited Red Gables students today for a special assembly then visited with individual classes to answer questions. “Presidents are real people. They get sick, they get scared, they have good days and bad days” said Meacham. Through stories about personal interactions with past presidents, and how he conducts his research when writing his books about deceased presidents, Meacham encouraged the students that they too can do anything they put their minds to. Including being president!
