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

Robert Ballard – Rediscovered the Titanic

Robert Ballard was the man that lead the team that discovered the wreckage of the Titanic. He has also been extremely involoved in finidng other ship wrecks throughout the world. I read a book by Ballard a couple of years ago and it was almost above my reading level. I think of myself as a fairly smart guy and a good reader but his book was hard. It was a really good book that talked about finding the titanic but he used so many words that I didn’t know. I basically had to read it with a dictionary by my side. He sent a short little note and an autographed picture. The letter says, “Study hard and follow your dreams! Robert Ballard”
