Steve Ford speaks to students at his father's namesake school

President Ford's son speaks to studnets

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The son of President Gerald R. Ford, Steve Ford, visited a group of middle schoolers in Grand Rapids Thursday.

His message? The importance of making positive life choices.

Ford spoke at the Gerald R. Ford Academic Center on Madison Avenue. He talked about living in the White House and encourage students to stand up to negative peer pressure.

"That's what Dad loved, it was in his blood to be a public servant and he didn't do it because of money or fame, he did it because he loved helping his constituents in Grand Rapids and West Michigan," Ford said.

"Public service is getting to be a lost art and any time we get a chance to talk to young people and inspire them we like that."

Ford also talked about his movie career during his visit. He's had roles in Black Hawk Down and When Harry Met Sally.
