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
Are you looking for an energetic medium-sized dog? Maybe you’re looking for me! I’m Shep, the cutest little hound around. I love squeaky toys, running really fast in the play yard, and learning fun new tricks. My previous owners say I’m crate-trained, housebroken, and have already learned some basic manners. I had a rough start to life and need some understanding people to help me overcome some of my fears. I don’t like other dogs and want to be the only pet in your home, but don’t worry! I’m so playful and give so many cuddles you’ll never run short. I find kids overwhelming and living with them in my previous home got pretty stressful, so I’d rather live with adults and maybe older teenagers in my forever home. Do I sound like a good match for your household? Come talk with the staff here and arrange to meet me!
