This year’s conference
theme centers on SkillsUSA's Four Pillars. The Four Pillars: Your Personal
Leadership Journey is an engaging book designed for students who are
ready for a more in-depth approach to learning leadership. It demonstrates that
leadership isn't just an influential word that looks good on a resume; it is a
life changer. Students will discover their best selves in all facets of their
personal and professional lives. Got Questions? Contact Josie
Wolfe, JWU student & RI SkillsUSA board member.
through a myriad of colors is what The Color Run does best. They pride
themselves on being the happiest 5K Color Run in the world, and fully embrace
being so. On Sunday, September 25th, Johnson &
Wales University's National Student Organizations and
the National Society of Minorities in Hospitality teamed up to help
set-up, breakdown and keep literally spreading the joyousness of the
colorful paint around.
The Color Run has
four main objectives: Healthiness, Happiness, Individuality and Giving Back. Despite
being a for-profit, over four million dollars have been allocated to local
charities in communities throughout the country. This Color Run’s volunteers
were fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to assist this
wonderful organization and its chosen philanthropy, the Partnership
also partnered with The Color Run and generously gave 20% off to
anyone who ate at their establishment in Providence on the day
of the race. The second shift group decided
to enjoy a nice lunch there after volunteering, in order to further
support the cause.
Overall, the 5K
Color Run is truly a selfless organization whose main goal is to ensure
they play a significant role in helping make others happy and
healthy. Thank you to everyone who volunteered for making a difference!
