Most people think of business’s and corporations when they think of management, but many forget that those guiding our youth everyday are just as engaged in leadership than any corporate executive. I’ve been able to view Mr.…

    I’m casually watching the garage sale, and out of the corner of my eye I see 7 runners briskly running down the street in perfect stride. As they come near my driveway I see it’s the Cross Country team. Led by one of my closest friends, they stop and asked me four words I will never forget, “Joel Join Cross Country”.

    I had a extremely scary doctor's appointment that day. I didn't tell anybody about it at school because I was embarrassed. I has had a stomach issue for the past three years. I has to take tons of medication, but none of it seems to work. I told Jordan about the stomach issue just not that appointment. I didn't want to distract him from his next cross country meet because I knew this was a big deal for him. The doctor said something in my stomach could erupt. I felt like I was paralyzed with…
