Mike Mitchell’s Senior Night

2013-08-09 10.07.05

Mike Mitchell always dreamed of putting on an NFL jersey with “Mitchell” on the back. Tonight, on what would have been his 19th birthday, a gym full of people will wear his #5 basketball jersey while LEAD Academy retires that number; never to be worn again. Sometimes our dreams don’t work out like we hoped. Sometimes a young man’s grace and courage unite unlikely people and inspire them to dream bigger, laugh harder, and love more abundantly. Tonight’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe something we may never get to see again. A community of diverse friends witnessing what happens when God uses one person to transform the lives of many.

There will be a group of us meeting in the front of the White House tonight at 6:00 to caravan over there where Mike’s jersey will be retired at 6:30 during the Senior Night festivities between the Girls’ and Guys’ games. The game is at Cameron Middle School and you can follow us or meet us there. If you have a “Fight Like Mike” shirt, wear it.
