Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 1

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Since I began this journey, I’ve been committed to traveling as far and wide as I could possibly afford.  We all have a bucket list, and if a visit to Sturgis South Dakota isn’t on it, then you might want to re-examine your list.

I was invited to join three other brothers to this year’s 79th edition of the Sturgis Rally.  Last year when I was asked,  I thought to myself that I had at least a year to REALLY decide if I wanted to go.

Then I paid my hotel fees (which had to be paid in advance) and I realized that I HAD to go now and there was no looking back.  I’m grateful that I didn’t change my mind, and I’m blessed by the people I went with and the sites I saw.

The 8th Grade “Your Choice, Your Future” Career Exploration day was a success

 

The Clarksville-Montgomery County School SystemClarksville, TN – The second annual 8th Grade “Your Choice, Your Future” Career Exploration Day was held on Friday, November 18th at the Memorial Health Building (the Red Barn) on Austin Peay State University. 2200 Kids from 7 area middle schools took part in the event which gave them access to potential employers and educational programs.

According to Brenda Scarborough, a Career Tech Counselor for the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System; “You hear kids all the time asking why they have to take this class, or that class.” then she gave an example, “If they are interested in working in a field, they can come and ask someone in that profession what they did in high school to better understand why they need to take the English, Math, and the Sciences; and it gives them a connection to their future careers. These kids start out thinking they know where their career path falls, and after they come here they know where it falls.”
