MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.IMAGE MARTIN LUHER KING JR.2
( A Great Leader)
On August 28, 1963
Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech to a peaceful crowd of 250,000 people. Within the next two year, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. This was a demonstration of great leadership, and I say to
you scholars, I have a dream. I have a dream, “that one day you will make an impact in the way children are cared for, in how they learn,
and in the availability of resources and programs; that you will use your talents, intellect, resources and knowledge to ensure that all children are able to read, that they have services available that ensures their proper growth and intellectual development, and that they have access to and assistance with fulfilling their full potential; that every child knows from a young age that they are
loved by God and that they have talents and gifts given by God to be used to make our world a better place”. Young scholars this is my dream for you.

Check your calendars: Arête Sessions are mandatory for keeping a good standing and advancing in the organization. It is strongly recommended that scholars also attend all other initiatives as they are specifically designed to enhance and develop leadership skills and knowledge.

Arête sessions this year, will include speakers, team building and the study of a local non-profit, which each Arête group will be involved in shadowing and communicating ideas to and with the selected organization. The year long project will allow scholars to develop and understand website building, marketing, entrepreneurship, planning stages and financing a business and other IT skills involved in and around an actual community organization. Each scholar will be able to use existing skills, learn new ones and expand upon others. Check your upcoming calendar and RSVP for the above sessions and events.

Thank you and God Bless,
