5th Grade Student Dalton Sherman on Oprah Monday

Congratulations to 5th grade student Dalton Sherman and his family.

"The Dallas ISD's Dalton Sherman, the fifth-grade student from Charles Rice Learning Center who delivered the keynote address at the 2008 Back-to-School Kickoff, will appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show, 4 p.m., Monday, Nov. 17, on WFAA, Channel 8.

Dalton's popularity has soared since delivering his motivational speech to Dallas ISD teachers and staff at the American Airlines Center in August. Since that time, he has appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and become an Internet sensation.

Dalton's mother, Donna Sherman, a 19-year veteran of the district, is a fifth-grade teacher at J.P. Starks Elementary School.
