Our Weekly Letter for December 6, 2000

December greetings to everyone!
I had a wonderful time judging the Iowa State Drill Team Competition this past weekend and seeing over 212 teams perform and compete. This event will be televised on Iowa Public Television on Saturday, February 10th. It is quite an event with so many teams!

Here is a thought of the week from Jim Rohn:
"A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better." 
His weekly messages are always inspiring.
This week we have deadlines for Aggie Dance Day that will be January 28th 
with the Texas A&M Aggie Dance Team and All Star performance game on December 30th televised on Fox Sports Network. All of this information can be 
accessed online at our web site on our Special Events page
There is another great passage on Empathy and Caring from Jim Rohn. Below that, Dr. Don Williams sent the amusing passage regarding the new school voice prompting systems. Hope you enjoy them as I did!
