On Tuesday, October 9, 2012,
members of the Sloan-Hendrix Future Business Leaders of America
attended the District II Fall Conference in Jonesboro, Arkansas, at
the Arkansas State University Convocation Center. Over 1,900
students from across Northeast Arkansas were in attendance.
Be a first class citizen. In all that you do, be highly principled. Always be neat in appearance, take care of grooming and clothing. No drugs or alcohol.
Commit to excellence. In everything you do, do your best. Be committed in academics, sports, hobbies, and chores. Be the best “person” you can be.
Pay attention to detail. Ordinary things are important.
Be good to the little guy. Everyone deserves to be treated fairly. Be respectful to all.
Give the effort. In everything you do, do the best you can. Always give 100%.
Coach Raffo encouraged members to wrap these five areas around the
“Big A” which is your attitude. Attitude is a state of mind that
only you can control. It can keep you going or it can cripple you.
It’s up to each individual person to choose a positive attitude.
