I believe that a mentor can be anybody,
of any age who can provide proper
guidance and direction. Someone who
can offer sound advice and counsel with
the best interests of the individual in mind.

I believe that a coach teaches
discipline, dedication, a sense
of direction, achievement, individuality,
togetherness, independence, behavior
and attitude.

A mentor and a coach is someone who offers something to society.
With that said, "each one can teach one to reach one."

Our Kids Are In Trouble

Today, in America, there are more than 14 million youth under 18 who are defined as "at risk" (of not reaching a productive adulthood). They face a relentless assault of negative influences which often result in drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, poor academic performance, violence, even death.

Every child should have the opportunity, confidence, character and support needed to lead a safe, healthy and productive life. They have a right to expect a fair chance to develop their talents and apply their energies in order to successfully contribute to society. However, their communities are bereft of role models, and teachers have too much on their plates.

Studies consistently show that the best hope for young people comes from mentoring.

Congratulations to all of the wonderful faculty that were nominated for their excellent work!

Received Award for Outstanding Service and Committment.
