Dalton Sherman Scores Hug From Jenna Bush Hager

Dalton_JennaTomorrow morning, Dallas ISD’s own Dalton Sherman will appear on The Today Show. Here’s a pic of him hugging it out with Hager, who is now a correspondent for the show. And here’s what the district says of Sherman’s appearance:

Student and speaker extraordinaire Dalton Sherman will be featured tomorrow, Sept. 18, on NBC’s The Today Show. Dalton, who is now a student at Dallas Environmental Science Academy, and his family were interviewed last week by new Today Show correspondent Jenna Bush Hager.

Since being the surprise keynote speaker at last year’s convocation held at the American Airlines Center, Dalton has become somewhat of a celebrity. He has appeared on Oprah and Ellen and has delivered speeches throughout the country. This past summer, Kids Who Care Inc. of Fort Worth created a musical that was inspired by his speech called District XI: Believe in Me. Dalton and his brother Demosthenes are now members of the production’s cast. The next performance is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 2, at the Scott Theatre in Fort Worth.
