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.
