Documentary: last in class!



Via my research lab, I heard about this ongoing documentary-making on the "last in class!". The documentary will be a light-hearted look at our culture's growing obsession with achievement as explored through the profiles of several people who finished at the bottom of their college (and in some cases, also high school) class and the somewhat unexpected, often ironic, lives they have lived since.

Check out the web site as they are looking for these exceptional low profiles!



The call:
1. We already have a number of possible people to profile for the film
(from a country music star to a serial entrepreneur and beyond) but are
always interested in hearing from, and about, more. If you know of anyone
who might fit the bill, please send them our way (info [at] lastinclass [.] com).

2. As you will see from the website, as part of this project, we are also
putting together a companion piece of truly memorable report cards and
report card comments, in particular. If you have any you would like to
share, please do.

3. Finally, please pass this email along to your friends and colleagues.
We know that those who finished last are just as rare as those who finished
first but we know that they are out there and probably the source of far
better stories to be told.

"Last in Class... There's nowhere to go but up!" :)
That is a fun and actually clever approach (even if it's just another generalization). History has already shown some nice samples of "bad" pupils/students changing the world or making their mark. I can't apply, was too much of a "good boy"...well... mainly! ;)
Who's next?
