The First Annual Penny Drive
Just a reminder please don’t forget to bring pennies for our 1st annual penny drive. Our goal as a school is to collect 6 million pennies. The pennies represents the 6 million Jews that were murdered during the Holocaust. Also, we will donate the money to the Holocaust Museum in Virginia on Friday, May 2, 2014. The deadline to bring all your pennies will be April 30th. (More details about the trip to the Museum later)

Future Business Leaders of America
What is Leadership?
Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization, group or individual in a way that makes it or them more cohesive and coherent.
Leadership is "organizing a group of people or an individual to achieve a common goal". The leader may or may not have any formal authority.
Good leaders are made not born. If you have the desire and willpower, you can become an effective leader. Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and experience (Jago, 1982).
To inspire others into higher levels of teamwork, there are certain things you must be, know, and, do. These do not come naturally, but are acquired through continual work and study.
Good leaders are continually working and studying to improve their leadership skills; they are NOT resting on their laurels.
