Here's an article written by one of my favorite friends: Mike Munier http://www.bobbeauprez.com/jefferson-academy-schools
Almost 15 years ago Mike asked me the classic question, "What's a charter school?" I had called Mike to see if he'd be interested in being the founding Principal of Jefferson Academy. This proved to be the beginning of a great experience for many of us who wanted a better education for our children. Personally, once Mike consented to being the principal, I no longer worried about getting the school started. Mike's done a fantastic job!
Since many of you reading this probably know Mike Munier, what you probably don't know is that Mike has started running half-marathons. I was impressed to learn that Mike had completed a half-marathon (which is amazing!), but his goal is to run 100 half-marathons. Many of us regular folk would say that's a ridiculously steep goal, but I guess Mike likes the challenge! Maybe after starting and operating a successful charter school running half-marathons seems like a breeze!
