Men of Distinction

Vol. 3, Ed. 13, 1.30.2019

Mr. Owens believes...

"As a nation, we are in need of educating EVERY child to their highest potential. We need to offer an avenue of hope and accomplishment to help children reach their goals. Mentorship has always been a part of my life and I hope that I will be able to leave a legacy of building up children so they won't become broken men. May our children leave us and go out into the world and make it a better place." ~ Mr. Melvin J. Owens

Men of Distinction December 2018 Lunch and Learn

The Men of Distinction and their mentors had a great time enjoying a nice lunch and discussing the message from Mr. Bryan Mills on the topic Dealing with Feelings. Mr. Mills spoke on a topic that is rarely discussed and it was amazing listening to the dialogue between the MODs and their mentors.

Be willing to show them the way...

Men of Distinction January 2019 Lunch and Learn

The Men of Distinction and their mentors was inspired by the message from Mr. Dane Felicien on the topic Eliquette. Mr. Felicien stated that "acting without boundaries causes chaos. We have to learn to conduct ourselves in all situations in life". There were many examples and illustrations presented to the MODs. The table discussion with their mentors were outstanding. Thank you Mr. Felicien!
