Perspective

Just start

My brother, Jim Rash, an Academy Award-winning writer, director, and actor, delivered the commencement address at Charlotte Latin School on Friday. Jim attended Irwin Elementary, First Ward Elementary, and Alexander Graham Middle School, before graduating from Charlotte Latin and then The Lawrenceville School. I don't know anyone who works harder than my brother. In addition to the important lessons he shares with the Latin graduates in this address, he taught me to dream big and not to fear failure. Jim is known for his improvisational comedy and his role as Dean Pelton on Yahoo's Community. So enjoy.
