Michelle Bandur will be welcomed to Palisades on March 2, 2020. At 8:15 AM, Ms. Bandur will speak to students in grades 3rd -5th as part of our on-going focus on KINDNESS.
Michelle Bandur received a $1 bill in the mail accompanied by a spiteful message; “use it to fix your big fat nose.” It was a gut punch that took her back to her childhood.
Michelle Bandur's award winning career as a television journalist has put her in the path of deadly tornadoes, hurricanes, on Nebraska’s death row, & covering the Los Angeles Lakers. A native Omahan, she has worked at over 13 television stations. She has also produced a documentary and provides media consulting. She is active in the endurance sports community, regularly competes in triathlons, and has just completed her 6th Ironman competition. She co-founded a Juniors Tri Club - a free program for girls ages 8-14.
She chose to turn this negative event into a positive and she speaks on empowerment and positive choices. As a school community, GPS, is excited to welcome Michelle Bandur to share her story with our students.
