“We choose to overcome the gravitational pull of the status quo so that we will be an Exemplary middle school in McKinney ISD, not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone and one in which we intend to win!"
Adapted from President John F. Kennedy’s September 12, 1962 Speech
