Templeton hosts former Packer LeRoy Butler

Former Green Bay Packer LeRoy Butler will give an inspirational talk to Templeton Middle School students May 18 at two assemblies that will begin at 9:20 a.m. and 10:10 a.m. He will share his unique life story that includes growing up in the projects of Jacksonville, Fla. while struggling with health problems. Ultimately, Butler made it as a high school and college football All-American and became a football hero with the Green Bay Packers, winning Superbowl XXXI.

The Templeton Home and School Organization and Student Council are sponsoring Butler’s speaking engagement. A limited number of autographed books, “The LeRoy Butler Story: From Wheelchair to Lambeau Leap,” will be available for purchase by students during lunch periods for $25 each. If all the books are not sold during the lunch hours, the books will be sold on a firstcome-first-served basis through the Templeton school office.
