I am encouraging listeners to join me in an effort to officially submit 'Ponseti Elementary' as a possible name for one of the new Iowa City schools.

Dr. Ignacio Ponseti was an amazing man and he dedicated his life to children.  His method for treating club feet is still used today all across the world and he perfected the method right here in Iowa City.  Beyond his medical accomplishments he also had an unquenchable thirst for reading and learning about various topics.  He was determined to keep reading books and he constantly encouraged others to read.  He felt everyone should work to give back to the community and he would be a great representative of an Iowa City School.

To learn more about Dr. Ponseti I recommend you read the book 'Ponseti and Paul' by local author Paul Etre.  It can be found at Prairie Lights Bookstore:  http://www.prairielights.com/live/paul-etre

If you would like to submit 'Ponseti Elementary' as a possible name for an Iowa City School please e-mail your request to Asst. Superintendent Ann Feldmann at:
