Michael Phelps, graduate of Towson High School
You might recognize this BCPS Alumni. Few words can capture the expansive measure of his accomplishments. He’s an Olympic champion, philanthropist, public speaker and wonderful family man. Michael Phelps represents the essence of setting goals and perseverance. We celebrate him in many ways and are proud to say he is a BCPS graduate, part of the fabric of our community.
What has Michael recently accomplished? We had fun watching him on a new episode of “Shark Week”, brought to us by The Discovery Channel. In a current press release, Discovery posted a little information about “Phelps vs. Shark…..”
“PHELPS VS. SHARK: GREAT GOLD VS GREAT WHITE – Sunday, July 23
They are one of the fastest and most efficient predators on the planet: Sharks. He is our greatest champion to ever get in the water: Michael Phelps. 39 world records. 23 Olympic golds. But he has one competition left to win. An event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before. The world’s most decorated athlete takes on the ocean’s most efficient predator: Phelps V Shark – the race is on! ~ Produced by Peacock Productions.”
Congratulations Michael Phelps, on all of your accomplishments.
