East Davidson FBLA Chapter takes top prizes

Jennifer Adcock, Business teacher and FBLA advisor graduated from East Davidson and was an active member herself in the club when she was a student. For 15 years,  Adcock has been a passionate advocate for community service and helping others. She works tirelessly — in and out of the classroom — to instill character and sense of stewardship in all of her students.

“God gives each of us special gifts and it’s up to us to decide how we use them,” said Adcock. “It makes me so happy to see our club work hard to do for others who are in need. This club is constantly giving back and finding ways to serve the community we live in. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing the students win at competitions, but what matters most to me is that they actually see and feel what it is like to do for others.”

In addition to assembling and delivering 122 Christmas presents to the residents of Libertywood Nursing Center in Thomasville, Adcock said FBLA members opted out of simply dropping the gifts off but chose instead to personally visit with each resident and wish them a Merry Christmas.

“The students wanted to show those folks they cared and spend a little time with them,” Adcock said. “That kind of thoughtfulness reflects what kind of kids we have participating in this club. They are awesome.”

It’s been a busy week

My wife and I like to listen to Garrison Keillor on Saturday night if we are close to a radio. He is the author and storyteller who always begins his stories with, “It’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon.” Last week was anything but quiet and the week I am beginning looks to be even busier. I am not dreading the week, but I want to stay healthy for the holidays and I want to slow down and enjoy each of the activities. I want to make sure that I don’t rush through the week and miss the special time that I will get to spend with family and friends.
