Don’t shoot him an e-mail; walk to his cubicle and ask him face to face. Some companies have instituted email-free Fridays to get employees out of their chairs more often,” - submitted by Kellen Horney, Director of Member Services Read more online

Now that graduation has come and gone, most high school graduates are enjoying their last summer before they take the college plunge. Though, Ashley Land’s summer is anything but carefree as she prepares for her debut with the Vanguard Lions women’s basketball team. Ashley trains twice a day, six days a week. She meets with three different trainers - one for basketball, one for cardio, and DAC Trainer Darcie Hill for weightlifting. Between workouts, Ashley works part-time as an assistant at a local law firm and enjoys the summer with her friends. “Everyone says it seems like a lot, but it’s really not that bad,” says Ashley. “I’m just trying to prepare because the school I’m going to is really competitive.” Working out with Darcie has just that. In addition, to her weight training sessions, Darcie tracks Ashley’s stats, including verticle jump, bar dip reps and sprint times, which have improved dramatically. When asked how she does it all, Ashley says, “It’s just about time management. It’s about making schedules, being organized and staying healthy.” “Pull quote text, text, text, text, text, Ashley started to play basketball when she was 8 years old.

On top of her dedication to basketball, Ashley was also committed to school, graduating from Sheldon High School’s honors program with a 3.97 GPA. “School was really important to me,” says Ashley. “I knew that I had to get good grades and a high SAT score to get nearly a full ride scholarship.” Vanguard offered Ashley a dual scholarship for athletics and academics. While she considered other universities, such as Northwest Christian Universit y, Corban Universit y and St. Martins, Ashley knew Vanguard was the perfect school once she practiced with the team. Ashley moves to Costa Mesa on August 20. She plans to major in biology with the hopes of becoming a pharmacist. In fact, her family owns a drug mart chain that she is a part owner of. “My parents do a lot for me and I’m excited to do things on my own,” says Ashley. “It’s scary because I don’t want to fail, but I’m excited.”

½ bottle gin, ½ cup whole cream, salt & pepper to taste. Directions: Cut tomatoes into large chunks and place over high heat. Stir occasionally for five minutes, then add the gin, continue cooking and stiring until you cannot smell or taste the alcohol. Add the basil, remove from heat and let set until cool. Next pour into a blender, food processor, or use a wand emulsifier to puree the soup. Now pour the soup back into the pot and bring to light boil and add the cream. Season to your personal enjoyment. Chef’s Note: This soup is very simple and delicious. If desired, garlic can be added in the first step to blend classic Italian flavors. This soup also makes an amazing sauce. Simply cook down a finished portion in a sauté pan until it becomes thick and then add a little butter and serve over any protein or mix with noodles.
