”You Better Eat Your WHEATIES” if you are going to be a part of Ms. Samuels Administative Assistant program and team! We hit the ground running in August 2010. We have worked on everything from program assignments and activities, Business Professionals of America (BPA) meetings, professional development and community service projects. Tis the season of giving (of oneself) and Mrs. Samuels class does our share of participating in many community outreach events. Please enjoy the photos from some of the fun and inspiring events we have worked on this year.

We have had such a busy semester and are looking forward to the new year. The Administrative Assistant class will be filling job positions near you. Be on the look out for these exceptional “Champions”!
Metro Tech students are giving back to the community in a big way. This year, Surgical Technology and Graphic Design students are hosting clothing drives. South Bryant students are sponsoring Townsend Elementary school and Surgical Tech students are sponsoring Martin Luther King Elementary and Edwards Elementary.
Graphic Design students are collecting items through December 6th for their “Warming the Winter” drive. Please bring your gently worn or new items to the South Bryant Campus Graphic Design classroom during school hours.
Surgical Tech students are collecting items through December 10th for their “Operation Gloves for Warmth” drive. Their goal is to collect 700 pairs of gloves for 700 students. They are excepting all winter clothing that follows. You can find collection boxes in all sites on the Springlake campus and, soon, on all Metro Tech campuses.

I would like to take this time to say Thank You for “Thanks Giving” to my instructor Ms. Cynthia Samuels and my Administrative Assistant class of Business Professional of America members. I want to thank them for being who they are and for embracing the Character First trait of hospitality that they all posses as we continue to develop in our quest for program completion here at Metro Tech.
The Thanksgiving holiday, to me, kicks off the season for giving and sharing with others. For some people, it is who we know and love that we are willing to share our hospitality with and for others it’s whom we have come to know or don’t even know at all. But what we do know is this…there is a need out there and it is bigger than us. This November our Metro Tech Administrative class came together and prepared four Thanksgiving food baskets. Thanksgiving is the realization of being personally blessed and fortunate enough to give to others. We decided to find families within our own classroom that might need assistance with their holiday meal. During our group meetings, it was realized that the need went beyond our class so we cheerfully agreed upon several families known by our instructor or classmates. The baskets were delivered to the families and they were very humble and appreciative. I love seeing others smile. It was a very warm feeling to know that we were helping someone else perhaps to lessen a burden this holiday season. It validates the hospitality that continues to build inside of all of us.
