120 Letters

I've come across an inspiring letter story I want to pass along. A teacher in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi has written 120 letters to his former students. Mr. Pullin, a middle school teacher wrote letters to each student of his first year teaching. He had them as seventh graders and they are now high school seniors. Each letter was hand written, hand delivered, and certainly a treasure. His aim? To tell students how special they are. Who wouldn't want mail like that? Let encouragement be the theme of our letters this week. The results can be only good.

You can read more about Mr. Pullin and his letters at the Watertown Daily Times.
