I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! It flew by for me and Monday came just a little too soon. BUT, all is right with the world because there are some big things coming in the next month, so I'm pretty excited to start planning for them. Just a quick little sneak peak of upcoming events: (more about all of these later!)
- Girl Powered! Workshop: celebrating the "International Day of the Girl" in all STEM education & industry. Coming October 12th (registration opening soon!)
- Back the Red, White & Blue: FREE luncheon for all first responders in Hunt County. October 19th!
- Red Ribbon Month! All of October :)
- Veterans Day Celebration! November 11th
And these are just the major events! We also have "Spirit Nights" at every home football game, featuring one of our elementary schools (this Friday will feature Carver!). Seriously, if you didn't already have enough reasons to LOVE fall...now you do :) Move over Pumpkin Spice Latte!
And speaking of Carver, last Friday, Mr. Jefferies made a trip to Carver Elementary to tell students all about what it means to be the Superintendent.
Mr. Jefferies told them all about what he does and decisions he makes as the Superintendent of GISD. I'm not sure who enjoyed themselves more, the students or Mr. Jefferies!
Now let's rewind all the way back to Friday, Sept. 2nd. Recent Greenville Football Hall of Fame inductee, Ricky Simmons, spoke to the Greenville High School football team about passion in football and working hard to achieve your dreams to pump them up for the game and help them set bigger goals in life. Simmons is a Greenville grad and was such a dynamic speaker. I loved hearing about his journey from Greenville H.S. football all the way to the NFL before drug and alcohol abuse ended his career prematurely. His message was powerful and touched everyone in the room (including me and I am definitely not a football player).
