Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County named Kalayah Samuels its 2019 Youth of the Year during a ceremony on Thursday, February 28 at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. She accepted the tribute before an inspired audience of about 300 donors and supporters of the organization. The event raised $145,000 for Club youth. Seven teens representing eligible Boys & Girls Clubs in the county competed for the top honor. Thanks to the generosity of the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation, the nominees were each awarded four-year Florida Prepaid College Scholarships with Samuels as the county overall winner receiving a four-year Florida Prepaid University Scholarship that also includes room and board. All the participants will attend the Florida state Youth of the Year competition to support Samuels in representing Palm Beach County. A judging panel - made up of Tunjarnika Coleman-Ferrell, Provost and Dean of Student Services, Palm Beach State College (PBG); David Donten, Director, C. Kenneth and Laura Baxter Foundation, Inc.; and Tammy Fields, Director, Palm Beach County Youth Services – decided on the winner based on the participants’ individual speeches at the Dinner as the final scoring factor. Audience members were left in tears as they listened to the moving stories of the teens’ successes and obstacles. Local members of Toastmasters International coached the youth. Samuels has been a member of Florence De George Boys & Girls Club for two years. Her grandmother raised Samuels and her younger brother following the death of their mother when Samuels was only four years old. The now 17-year-old will graduate this May from Palm Beach Lakes Community High School. She has volunteered hundreds of hours to better the community and started Girl Talk, a group of 6 – 8 girls that aims at raising awareness about technology use among youth. Last year’s Youth of the Year, David Wooten, also hailed from the Florence De George Club. He is attending Florida Atlantic University and is pursuing a degree in psychology. Youth of the Year Dinner chairpersons were Olympia Brooks and Wilder Regalbuto. Honorary Chairmen included the Honorable Danielle H. Moore and the Honorable Lesly S. Smith of the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation. They are the donors who made the life-changing scholarships a reality for these lucky youth.

March 15 - March 21, 2019

Alex Price, National Director of Community Relations for Office Depot, served as emcee. Committee members were Lisa Russo, Katherine Kress, Camryn Del Rio Linton, Laura Wissa, and Elizabeth DeBrule. Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s leading youth recognition program that celebrates members’ outstanding contributions to their family, school community, and their Club, as well as overcoming personal challenges and obstacles. It is the highest honor a Boys & Girls Club member can receive. Each year, Club members participate in the national competition, which begins at the local level. They are evaluated on a variety of categories including leadership skills, moral character, academic performance, and service to their community. Finalists were Nicholas Polycarpe from the Marjorie S.

Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club of Wellington; Derry Gaspard from Naoma Donnelley Haggin Boys & Girls Club of Delray Beach; Jasmine Myrthil from Max M.

Remember to Read Something Over the Spring Break Today, 196,000 students in the School District of Pam Beach County will begin their coveted spring-break. And while many students will be heading to local camps or even mini family vacations, many - especially those who are at-potential - will sit idle or do worse. (Many will also go hungry.) I am calling on parents to encourage your children to pick up a book and read it during the break. After all, anything school-related can sound like “homework” to students. And I know that when the options include swimming, streaming videos or playing video games, going to the mall or hanging out with friends, reading can sometimes be a hard sell. Studies however show that at-potential children are at a greater risk of losing what they earned when classes are not in session. Recently, I encouraged some of my mentees to read something over the Spring Break and their response was quite interesting. For a minute, I

thought they were unionized. Some see the break as a respite from class. “Spring Break is our time to get away from school and condition our minds for the weeks leading up to summer,” one reasoned. My seniors see it as a rite of passage or a reward for slogging through the stressful SATs, personal essays and arduous college admissions process. While they do not care about reading, some will do so to amuse or even appease me. When I pointed out that the most recent study ranks the quality of education in Florida at number 25, students should be spending more days in the classroom or a learning environment than they do. That kicked off a lively debate. One, who should be destined to an Ivy League college, quickly pointed out that by spending more time in a school building does not always result in a better student. Instead, she said, more time

in a learning environment could be a better alternative. State law requires Palm Beach County schools to hold 180 days of instruction time. In comparison, students in Japan spend 243 days - 63 days longer. And the standard school year in Israel, the Netherlands, Scotland and West Germany is 200 days or more. It should be noted thought that although those countries spend more time in school, this does not mean they are receiving more instruction. I concur that the antidote is not simply more time in class. In countries that outperform the U.S., students spend less time in class, not more. Children—especially elementary-age students—learn through play and activities. I also think students should not have to be physically at school every day or all day. This will allow for other learning opportunities and environments to be integrated into a child’s education.

Unfortunately, we would have a better chance of making Palm Beach County the state capital than getting the school district to change the school calendar. Any such move would be countered with opposition from the teachers’ union, vocal families, the tourism industry and any and everything that could improve academic achievement. As a proponent of year-round school, I think there should be the equivalent of eight weeks of vacation distributed throughout the year—two weeks every season. This certainly will reduce the frequency and extent of summer learning loss. It will also afford students an opportunity to job shadow or participate in experiential trips outside of their community or city. And as I told those students, in the end, their hard work, sacrifice and dedication over Spring Break could be the real keys to their personal and professional success.

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Keep Your Phobias From Stealing Your Peace! It is wise to be cautious wherever we are. It is equally imperative to be aware of all the evil that abounds in society. It is further necessary to take every precaution against dangers which run rampant everywhere on earth! But that should never reach the point of paranoia! Every human must aim at living cautiously in the world, even if conditions were totally safe and desirable. Nevertheless, the reality experienced by which all humans, is that we occupy an evil space under the sun, anywhere all over the globe. Terrorism is not limited to the areas where it originates; crime of manifold varieties threatens individu-

als and groups everywhere; natural and other disasters occur with increasing frequency in most regions of earth! In some ways it’s not easy to lead a tranquil life on account of all these realities. One can only awake every morning hoping for the best, and doing what is necessary to ensure good things to come, albeit much more is left outside one’s control. What complicates matters for some people is that they unnecessarily augment their misery by the phobias they entertain. On account of so much identity theft, often caused by a proliferation of internet users and new varieties of social media, some people

rob themselves of the benefits which those modern conveniences offer! Certain others are hesitant of answering their own phones, fearing that their messages may be heard by others. If they use a computer, they don’t permit the use of the web camera since that would bring undesirable eyes into the privacy of their own home or office, while the curtains at their domiciles are to remain shut all day so that the whole world won’t be looking in! While legitimate caution needs to be observed in all we do, much of the above and more can and should be avoided; it is paranoia at its purest, and it simply diminishes one’s sense of per-

sonal peace, while robbing such persons from the vaster benefits which come from modern technologies, and a life of genuine liberty! As long as we occupy the globe, evil shall also exist, persist, and never desist, due to the human proclivity to all kinds of evil. Yet, notwithstanding all that, one can enjoy new devices, utilize them to the best of one’s ability with every measure of reasonable caution and for legitimate ends only, thus contributing to one’s personal growth and bringing benefits to others!

Concourse D’Elegance Antique Car Show I attended the Concourse D’Elegance Antique Car Show last Sunday at the Boca Raton Hotel which was hosted by comedian, Jay Leno. A huge array of antique and newer cars and motorcycles won awards . A VIP tent was set up with many different area restaurants serving food and wine and Lamborgini Champagne. A delightful afternoon!

Going Beyond What The Law Requires When you think about the rules and regulations that affect you in the workplace, whether they are broadbased laws that apply to everyone or statutes that were designed specifically for your industry or profession, how do you deal with them? Do you comply only to the minimum extent required, choosing to abide strictly to the “letter of the law,” or would you consider the sometimes broader “spirit of the law” – the underlying and sometimes more demanding intent behind it? For years I have consulted with business and professional leaders, helping them to grasp and understand biblical principles that apply to the everyday marketplace. When I began doing this, it became evident that to avoid the danger of not practicing what I was teaching, I had to do an honest “selfappraisal.” This included examining my life for any past issues that I ignored or had not properly resolved. To be honest, doing this can be humbling and uncomfortable, but I felt it was necessary and important for my integrity as a consultant. I became convicted about a small, unpaid corporate debt from a previous business I had owned. Although the financial obligation was corporate, and legally I had no personal responsibility, God made it clear that He wanted all of my business dealings to be beyond reproach. As a result, I tracked down the business that was still owed money by my former company and sent them a check for the proper amount. The owners were more than surprised – they

were amazed. They called not only to thank me but also to tell me that since the debt had been written off and removed from their financial records, they donated the payment to a local church. Without question, I could have overlooked the unpaid debt. It was a legally constructed corporate entity – a business that no longer existed – that technically owed the money. Since my personal finances were not involved in any way, legally I had no responsibility. That was what the letter of the lawwould have said. However, as a follower of Jesus Christ, committed to living and working with integrity, I could not use that excuse. The spirit of the law, I knew, would have said differently. How could I speak with and advise leaders in the workplace about honesty and integrity if I were not willing to hold myself to the same standards? In the Bible’s New Testament, Ephesians 5:3 teaches, “But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.” God’s standards – as He reveals in the Scriptures – often exceed the law, but if we are to be effective and credible as His ambassadors, it is essential for us to live accordingly. My purpose is not to put anyone under a guilt trip. However, if God brings to your mind something you have done that should be corrected – or something you need to do – I urge you to follow through on that as soon as possible. Even if it means going beyond what the law requires. You will not regret it.

PBSC student named a Coca-Cola Academic Team Scholar

Joseph Culbreath, one of six Palm Beach State College students named to the 2019 All-Florida Academic Team, also has been chosen as a Coca-Cola Academic Team Scholar. As a silver scholar, Culbreath, who serves as president of both the Phi Theta Kappa chapter on the Lake Worth campus and the Honors College Advisory Council, will receive a $1,250 scholarship and a commemorative medallion. Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society sponsors the All-USA Academic Team competition annually with USA Today. Through the competitive application process that drew 2,000 nominees nationwide this year, students also are considered for the Coca-Cola Academic Team, New Century Transfer Pathway Scholarship, New Century Workforce Pathway Scholarship, and the All-State Academic Teams where applicable. Selections are based on academic achievement, leadership and engagement in college and community service. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Academic Team and recognizes 50 gold, 50 silver and 50 bronze scholars with nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually. “The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has a long history of providing financial assistance to outstanding students at community colleges,” said Jane Hale Hopkins, president of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “We are proud to partner with Phi Theta Kappa and make it possible for deserving students to achieve their educational goals.” In addition to Culbreath, PBSC leaders also nominated Joseph Morel, a former student trustee, and Oriana Bottaro, Jancarlos Gomez, Rachael Hobbs and Maggie Tonns. They are among the

158 students on the All-Florida Academic Team who will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Orlando April 4. Culbreath, who is pursuing the Gold Track in the Dr. Floyd F. Koch Honors College, said he’s honored to be chosen for the Cola-Cola Academic Team. “To be recognized in the top 150 out of 2,000 applicants is really humbling. It gives you that energy to keep working hard.” Culbreath was home schooled through 12th grade and began taking piano lessons when he was 10. He also played sports through Jupiter Christian School. After high school, he took a three-year break before enrolling at PBSC in fall 2016. During that time, he taught group piano lessons to children at Faith’s Place in Lake Worth through the Grace Notes Music Foundation. He also worked initially as a coach at Jupiter Christian School and then helped coach the basketball teams at Berean Christian School in West Palm Beach. He said the coach at Berean encouraged him to enroll in college. Initially, Culbreath, who takes classes at various campuses, was concerned about his transition to college. “I wasn’t sure of the transition being a home-school student. I ended up doing very well.” He continued to excel and earned the minimum 3.5 grade point average required for the Honors College as well as Phi Theta Kappa. He has applied to colleges in Florida and around the country and plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in finance or economics after graduating from PBSC with his Associate in Arts degree in May. His goal is to work in the business or management side of sports.

Local Students Serve Worldwide Over Spring Break



Forgoing a typical spring break at the beach, nearly 75 students will fan out across the Americas and the Caribbean to serve the poor, refugees and indigenous people this week. Students of various majors will travel to El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Guyana, Panama, Costa Rica, Brazil and Jamaica to serve with local churches and ministry partners. For the first time, nursing students will also go to Clarkston, Georgia. The small city in the Atlanta metro area is home to a large population of refugees. Students raise their own financial support to participate in missions during spring break. Also new this year, a team in Costa Rica is partnering with Ride Nature, a Southwest Florida-based action sports ministry that uses skateboarding to reach children with the Gospel, said Mark Kaprive, Palm Beach Atlantic University’s director of campus ministries. In Jamaica, a team will work with a church in the hills that’s building a youth-focused community center. Students will help with youth ministry, visit a home for disabled children and do street outreach in Montego Bay. Mike Olive, pastor of Common Ground Church in Lake Worth, will lead students. In Brazil, a team working with IsleGO Missions will live on a boat conducting medical clinics with a doctor and dentist on a tributary of the Amazon River. “Sometimes, they’re able to bring a homebound person to the clinic,” Kaprive said. “They may be the only medical visit those villages get in one or two years.” On previous visits, PBA teams have done children’s outreach programs and organized sports for youth. Teams typically visit homes and pray for families. They sometimes paint homes for termite protection. In Panama, a team will be working with PBA alumni John and Aimee Gordon ’04 of Sport X Change International. The team’s assignments vary by year, but they always point people to Christ, Kaprive said. Teams have helped with worship services for youth and used basketball and dance to build relationships. Last year, they showed the “Jesus” film in a tribal language. The film tells the story of the Gospel and has been translated into 1,600 languages. “It was the first time people on the island had seen the film in their heart language,” Kaprive said. In Guyana, a team with Love Missions will work with a local church’s

ministry to children and youth and visit a home for mentally-challenged children. Students will pray over the patients and give them a sense of hope in Christ. “It’s very powerful,” Kaprive said. Previous PBA teams have given educational programs related to drugs, alcohol, sex, sex trafficking and suicide. They are also helping build a safe house for girls who have been rescued from trafficking. Students will again travel to Antigua, Guatemala, to serve with BuildinGUATE, said Danielle Hawk ‘17, coordinator of The David and Leighan Rinker Center for Experiential Learning. Students will work on BuildinGUATE’s property, The Land of Hope, which provides housing, a nutrition center, classes, a medical clinic and a soup kitchen to people who would otherwise live on top of or near a municipal landfill in Escuintla. The trip was designed as an introduction for students who are first-time international travelers. The staff assembled a team of experienced travelers who can mentor younger participants, Hawk said. The team includes some Spanish speakers who can translate. Nursing students are returning to El Salvador to do medical missions, Kaprive said. Pharmacy and nursing students will return to Siguatepeque, Honduras, to offer medical clinics in coordination with a local pastor. They will dispense medication, take blood sugar and blood pressure readings and treat common ailments, said Dr. Dana Brown, associate dean of academics for the Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy and acting director of the Gregory Center for Medical Missions. Two alumni, Dr. Chris Schiel ’14, and Dr. Lindsey Drescher ’15, are leading that team. In Clarkston, Georgia, a team of nursing students led by Dr. Jessica Lendoiro, assistant director of experiential programs for the Gregory School of Pharmacy, will partner with a team from Cedarville University to offer health screenings to the refugee population, Brown said. They will visit mosques and temples to learn about other cultures, Brown said. Students will also eat Ethiopian food, for example, rather than American cuisine. “This is very much going to provide medical and spiritual care for patients, but it’s also allowing them (students) to have an immersion experience here in country,” Brown said.
