Oak Cliff 6th grader to appear on ‘The Today Show’ Friday

Maybe I’m the last person to know about Dalton Sherman, the Oak Cliff 6th grader who has appeared on daytime talk shows the likes of ‘Oprah’ and ‘Ellen.’ But I know about him now. Check out this video of a nearly nine-minute speech he gave — without notes — at last year’s DISD convocation.

Sherman, who is a student at the Environmental Science Academy in Oak Cliff, will appear on NBC’s "The Today Show" Friday. This kid is a dynamo. Does he really write that stuff himself? I don’t think I ever used the word "colleague" until after I finished college.
