Today is DAY 1

May Theme - May’s “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is “dependability.”


Quote of the Day This week’s quote is from General Omar Bradley.  General Bradley said, “Dependability, integrity, the characteristic of never knowingly doing anything wrong, that you would never cheat anyone, that you would give everybody a fair deal…character is sort of an all-inclusive thing.  If a man has character, everyone has confidence in him.”  Dependability is one of the key character traits for success.  People have confidence in a person who is dependable.
