Around Town Written by William Lewis
Mulligan, founder and CEO of GiveGab, a website that helps individuals find opportunities to volunteer in activities that interest them, spoke on the importance of hard work, cooperation, and determination in achieving success. Attending students were energized by Mulligan’s talk.
A number of students asked the speaker for advice on their own future entrepreneurial pursuits, and discussion of local opportunities to volunteer continued long after the presentation had concluded.
Of the approximately one hundred students invited to the event, about half attended. Organizers say they hope that these numbers will continue to grow as the honor roll recognition evening and other, similar events continue to encourage scholarship in the student body.
Pet of the Week
Lucy is here at the SPCA only because her owner is terminally ill and can no longer care for this loving, sweet cat. Lucy had belated surgery as a youngster for her inverted eyelids, which is the cause of her vision difficulties: limited, but she gets around independently and can follow wand toys if you want to encourage her to play. There have been no medical issues since then. She loves people, and is affectionate and sweet. She prefers a home with no other cats - or one or two at most. Lucy likes to sleep/hide under her blankets! She can be a little shy at first, but warms up very quickly and is super affectionate. She loves attention and is full of purrs and head butts when happy. Spread a little love around YOUR home, not to mention on Lucy!
