We know her from films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, where she wore oversized sunglasses and created a fashion statement with the little black dress. She has been recognized [...]

Thought for the Month! August 2022 Time To Plant As the 2022-2023 school year begins, teachers and students are adjusting class schedules, registering or dual enrollment classes, reviewing course credits, revisiting career pathways, and doing all the necessary things to ensure the ultimate goal is reached – graduation. But wait! There’s a lighter side to the beginning of school!

Vol. 2, Iss. 12 | August 2021 The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. ~ Alan Watts Thought for the Month August 2021 If the 2020-2021 school year taught us anything, it was that life isn’t stagnant. Change is inevitable. Change can be scary. It’s the unknown. It’s life. What is important to consider is that what we do with change makes a difference in our lives.

Vol. 2, Iss. 11 | July 2021 Thought for the Month July 2021 It’s the 4th of July, 2021. How did you and your family celebrate our nation’s independence? Maybe you had an outdoor BBQ and spent the evening shooting fireworks with family and friends, or you attended your city’s firework display. However you spent it, you most likely felt a sense of freedom to be able to celebrate wholeheartedly after missing out on the infamous 2020 cancellations!  As we celebrate our Nation’s freedom, let’s remember to share with our youth that freedom is not something [...]

That means we have 1,440 daily opportunities to make a positive impact. ~ Les Brown Thought for the Month May 2021 I recently came across an article in “Success Resources' - Your Learning Resources” which included an adaptation from Les Brown’s personal collection.

Vol. 2, Iss. 8 | April 2021 “Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great.” ~ Orison Swett Marden AUTHOR, PUBLISHER Thought for the Month April 2021 “Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them.” In reading this quote, I reflected on the past year and how the pandemic and the unexpected freeze have altered our way of life.
