Today is DAY 3

September Theme – September’s “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is “trustworthiness.”


Quote of the Day – This week’s quote is from Booker T. Washington.  Booker T. Washington said, “Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him.”     Booker T. Washington was one of the last African-American leaders born into slavery.  He knew the importance of trusting people who had been denied trust in the past.
