     Recognizing true leadership

    As life continues to unfold and I find myself moving to new locations and taking on different challenges, I always take time to look back and evaluate where I came from and the impact those experiences have on who I am becoming. 

  • Bluegrass white-knuckle corridor

     The closest tie to Louisville I used to have in my youth came in the form of the long concrete path of Interstate 64, which hastened my journey to see family in Cincinnati through its connection to I-71.

    As a child and passenger, the trip through Kentucky didn’t mean that much to me — just a means to an end and a sightseeing tour chauffeured by my dad.

  • Gone in the blink of an eye

     The older I get the more precious I find life and my relationships with others to be. Our time could be over at any given moment, without warning, and each day is a reminder to prepare for that unfortunate truth. 

    When I was in elementary school, my family moved from Whittemore Prescott to Gaylord, Michigan. We were building a home in a newly developed subdivision where there was only one finished house, and another being built across the cul-de-sac from us.

    The Eminence Warrior volleyball team got off to a rough start in their home opener on Aug. 18 as they fell to the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats 2-0.

    Both teams struggled for consistency in the opening minutes of the first game and could not string together a significant run of points. The game seesawed back and forth until at 17-17 KCD put together 6-0 run to take a commanding lead.

    From there the warriors managed only one more point and KCD closed out a 25-18 win with a service ace.
