When I joined The Leadership Board, I didn’t know what to expect. I had always been involved on campus, but never off campus in Muncie. I love to volunteer, and after reading what Leadership Board was all about, I decided to join. I went to the first meeting on a Monday, and I wasn’t the only new person there. In a room full of people who knew what the Leadership Board was about, why it was important, and what needed to be done, Imani and I were completely new to this off-campus leadership … [Read more...]

Possibly the most exciting day of my internship has already happened, or so my boss says. He’s referring to the day I went down to the Social Media Command Center for Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. I hope a more exciting day will be seeing my advertising efforts produce effective results, but that’s just the adult in me. The kid in me wants to gloat about how awesome my trip with the Raidious team was. … [Read more...]

You Don’t Have to be a Superhero to Make a Difference

Bat Signal

A giant spotlight shines upward into the night sky. You spot it and flee while your prestigious guests question, “Where did Bruce go?” Alfred wishes you luck in a calm yet worried and wise way that only Michael Caine can. Your response is always the same: “They need me.” Then you strap yourself into the Batmobile and speed away. Which obstacle lies ahead? Is it the Riddler? Cat Woman? Two-Face?

Their stories often become farfetched and out of hand.  The winning lay-up becomes embellished into a two hand slam dunk that broke the backboard and beat … [Read more...]
