Russell, the son of a Gulf War veteran, has not always succeeded in the classroom. When he was younger, his photographic memory helped him in school, yet he began to struggle in the third grade. He was simply learning more than he could take in and memorize. But Russell did not let this hold him back; he was determined to do better. When authors Rush and Kathryn Limbaugh released Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, he got his hands on a copy and read it cover-to-cover. Three years later, he was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society as one of only three boys in his grade. We are glad that the book series played a part in motivating Russell to be diligent in school. His teachers now view him as a student who contributes to class discussion and surpasses expectations.
