CHANGING LIVES

Recently, Paul had the chance to witness first-hand how Arkansas State University–Mountain Home, is "Creating Opportunities ~ Changing Lives." With the spring term just underway, spending the afternoon working with faculty and staff was a fantastic opportunity for Paul.

Located in the Ozark mountains of north central Arkansas, ASUMH offers a wide range of educational opportunities including two-year degrees, technical certificates and certificates of proficiency. The mission of ASUMH is to lead by providing lifelong learning, enhanced quality of life, academic accessiblity and diverse experiences through various opportunities.

"It was an amazing experience to share 'Energize the Enthusiasm...that Exists Within' with my newfound friends at ASUMH," said Paul. "Thank you for welcoming me to your campus!"

The Florida Association for Child Care Management held their 2012 Annual Conference in Palm Beach Gardens earlier this month.

"Seeing the passion and professionalism of this organization in building and protecting the child care industry was inspiring," stated Paul after presenting two of his signature programs to conference attendees. "It truly was an honor to be a part of this event."

UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT

Because many are choosing to settle in the Frisco, Texas area, Frisco Independent School District is atop the list of the fastest growing districts in both Texas and the nation, growing 10-30% annually for the past 13 years. By providing a unique learning environment that maximizes student opportunity and invests in meaningful relationships, the mission of FISD is to partner with parents and community in developing caring citizens equipped to continue learning and pursue their aspirations for the more than 40,100 students it serves.

Upon his return to Little Rock, Paul shared the following, “Spending the day sharing ideas and inspiration with the faculty, staff and administration of the Frisco Independent School District was a terrific experience. It's evident that these 'Legendary Leaders’ exemplify excellence in education through the actions and dedication they set forth each and every day!”

Achieving peak performance on a consistent basis is often opposed by countless challenges, frustrations and disappointments.
