I learned about the importance of telling a good story – something your publications try to do each and every day – from a Tennessean who was a dear friend of mine. His name was Alex Haley and he became famous for telling stories, in particular those of his African ancestry in his best-selling novel, Roots.
One thing I’ve learned about life so far: Good things tend to come in bunches (bananas, grapes, and Honey Bunches of Oats come to mind) and bad things tend to come in clumps (think litter boxes, or Eddie Murphy’s collection of characters from “The Nutty Professor.”)
Growing up in Lebanon with teachers in my family, the importance of a good education was clearly evident. At an early age, I began to realize the impact that multiple factors have on the quality of education each student might receive.
