Get Caught Reading Month Get Caught Reading is a nationwide campaign to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read. May is Get Caught Reading month, but the campaign is promoted throughout the year. Get Caught Reading is supported by the Association of American Publishers (AAP). Launched in 1999, "Get Caught Reading" is the brainchild of former Congresswoman Pat Schroeder, President and Chief Executive Officer of AAP, the industry association representing book publishers. She saw the opportunity to spread the word about the joys of reading through an industry-supported literacy campaign. Because of research indicating that early language experience actually stimulates a child's brain to grow and that reading to children gives them a huge advantage when they start school, we hope to encourage people of all ages to enjoy books and

We are honored to have the support of well known figures including First Lady Laura Bush, Drew Carey, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Donald Duck, Patty Duke, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Graham, Derek Jeter, Vernon Jordan, Jake Lloyd, Rosie O'Donnell, Dolly Parton, The Rugrats, Jane Seymour, Sammy Sosa, Spider Man, Erik Weihenmayer, and Robin Williams, who have all been "caught reading" their favorite books and magazines for print ads and posters seen by millions of people across the country. In addition, more than 200 Members of Congress have been photographed "caught reading" on Capitol Hill. Hundreds of teachers and librarians across the U.S. have embraced the campaign. They are setting up "Get Caught Reading" corners, allocating a special time each day for leisure reading, and taking photos of students "caught reading" for classroom posters.

A SOLDIER’S HUG ere is a wonderful story. It was written by a woman named Sarah Barlow, and tells about her experience of witnessing a soldier’s act of kindness towards a little girl at the airport. Truly heartwarming: Last week I was in Atlanta, Georgia attending a conference. While I was in the airport, returning home, I heard several people behind me begin to clap and cheer. I immediately turned around and witnessed one of the greatest acts of patriotism I have ever seen. Moving through the terminal was a group of soldiers in their camos. As they began heading to their gate, everyone abruptly rose to their feet with their hands waving and cheering. When I saw the thirty or forty soldiers being applauded and cheered for, it hit me. I’m not alone. I’m not the only red-blooded American who still loves this country and supports our troops and their families. Of course I immediately stopped and began clapping for these young unsung heroes who are putting their lives on the line every day for us so we can go to school, work and home without fear of reprisal. Just when I thought I could not be more proud of my country or of our service men and women, a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old ran up to one of the male soldiers. He kneeled down and said, “Hi…”

The young soldier, who didn’t look any older than 22 years, said he would try and asked what she wanted to give to her daddy. Then suddenly the little girl grabbed the neck of this soldier, gave him the biggest hug she could muster, and then kissed him on the cheek. The mother of the little girl, who said her daughter’s name was Courtney, told the young soldier that her husband was a Marine and had been in Iraq for 11 months now. As the mom was explaining how much her daughter Courtney missed her father, the young soldier began to tear up. When this temporarily single mom was done explaining her situation, all of the soldiers huddled together for a brief second… Then one of the other servicemen pulled out a military-looking walkie-talkie. They started playing with the device and talking back and forth on it. After about 10-15 seconds of this, the young soldier walked back over to Courtney, bent down and said, “I spoke to your daddy and he told me to give this to you.” He then hugged this little girl that he had just met and gave her a kiss on the cheek. He finished by saying, “Your daddy told me to tell you that he loves you more than anything and he is coming home very soon.” The mom at this point was crying almost uncontrollably and as the young soldier stood to his feet, he saluted Courtney and her mom. I was standing no more than 6 feet away from this entire event. As the soldiers began to leave, heading towards their gate, people resumed their applause. As I stood there applauding and looked around, there were very few dry eyes, including my own. That young soldier, in one last act of selflessness, turned around and blew a kiss to Courtney with a tear rolling down his cheek. Every day, we need to remember all of our soldiers and their families, and thank God for them and their sacrifices. At the end of the day, it’s good to be an American.

The little girl then asked him if he would give something to her daddy for her…

Bringing Together A New Generation Of Dreamers by JEMMIE R. WATFORD. JR.

The

P R O J E C T

Several small business owners and aspring entrepreneurs were able to realize their dreams, thanks to Mike Schmitz, Mayor of Dothan and The Dream Project Initiative. The Dream Project business symposium, held at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, GA was hosted and presented by Egami Consulting Group. Egami Consulting Group was founded by Teneshia Warner Jackson, a Dothan native, who also coordinated and was the moderator for this event. Teneshia with help from Schmitz invited and provided transportation for over 50 small business owners and up and coming entrepreneurs to Atlanta for this success driven business symposium. This group was made up of a few barbershop and salon owners, an inventor, a professional painter, a print shop owner and various other creatives to name a few. Mayor Mike Schmitz gave words of encouragement to everyone attending. The group headed out with a thirst for knowledge and a need for inspirational encouragement. The Dream Project Symposium had a series of signature forums designed to support current and aspiring entrepreneurs, creatives and those who dare to DREAM with tools to take their current positioning to the next level in an environment where free-thinking is encouraged and no idea is too small! ible speakers and experts sharing the insights, strategies, experiences and life lessons to help individuals take charge The Dream Project’s panel consisted of; Teneshia Jackson Warner (CEO of Egami Consulting Group), Lisa Price (Owner

Carol’s Daughters), Randal Pinkkett (CEO of BCT Partners and Winner Of The Apprentice Season 4), Kevil Liles (CEO of KWL Enterprises) and Daymond John (CEO of FUBU and cast of ABC’s The Shark Tank). Each speaker told his/her story of the ups and downs of being a successful entrepeneur. Teneshia Warner Jackson told her story of leaving her hometown, Dothan, AL and following her dream to New York ultimately becoming a CEO. Lisa Price talked about developing her organic beauty line out of her kitchen. Randal Pinkett talked about making a path when there are no roads, when trying to overcome obstacles. Kevil Liles spoke of how he worked his way to the position he wanted by “being the president” from day one. Daymon John gave advice on never giving up on your opment. They delivered valuable advice and inspiration to a 500 plus audience of future CEO’s and small business owners. The Dream Project also provided several Break Out Sessions between each celebrity speaker for patricipants to attend. These sessions touched on topics ranging from “How To Access Capital” to “Dreaming On Purpose”. The Dothan participants were dazzled by the level of celebrity attendance and the wealth of information that was welcoming accommodations from Dothan’s very own Mogul (Teneshia Warner Jackson). With success in their sights , many Facebook posts from Dothan attendees were more than pleased with the informative structure of the 2014 Dream Project.
