South Piedmont CC - Fall 2013

Our club is off to a great start here at South Piedmont Community College. On October 4th, 2013 the President and Historian were invited to Jay M Robinson High School in Concord, NC to deliver a presentation on epilepsy to two clubs: the Multicultural club and the Spanish National Honor Society. There the President shared her experiences with epilepsy and educated the students on the condition and the first aid involved when a person has a seizure. She was also able to show a video that spoke about the different types of seizures. After the presentation, she followed up with a few true or false questions and to her surprise, the students answered every question correctly. The presentation was a very educational experience and the students seem to engage and enjoy it. They even asked questions while they were getting ready to leave and Jenny was able to provide them with brochures on an epilepsy support group she facilitates out of Charlotte. Overall, I believe this was a positive experience and the students and teachers involved in the presentation seemed to enjoy and learn a lot about epilepsy.

Another event we were involved with was the Bocce Tournament for Special Olympics on October 12th, 2013. We were asked to be officials and help out with the event through our adviser, Fredrea Crawford-Smith, who is highly active in the Special Olympics. We had an overall count of 57 people which was mostly athletes but did involve ten of our PBL members. The athletes really enjoyed playing the game and we are thankful for everyone who made the event possible. It was a privilege to get to know and work with 13 people from our community with special needs. Chick-Fil-A provided us with lunch. The lunch break was a great opportunity for many of us to talk with and get to know our athletes better. Many companies came together to make this event happen and we are looking forward to working further with our adviser in the Special Olympics. Overall, I believe this was a very positive and successful event. I believe the volunteers enjoyed themselves just as much as the athletes.

We are looking forward to some upcoming events here on campus such as FBLA’s Fall Leadership Conference on October 25th, 2013 and the State Fall Leadership Development Conference on November 1st-2nd, 2013. At the FBLA Leadership Conference, there will be many guest speakers, including our PBL President, Jenny Modesitt. Her topic of discussion will be “From Adversity to PBL President” and will talk a little on how she overcame her epilepsy diagnosis and became the president of PBL. We are looking forward to hearing some of the speeches that will be given and a day of fellowship with many high schools from across our region. I believe this is going to be a great experience for not only our club but the high school students that will be attending the workshop. The State Fall Leadership Development Conference is a two day event where we will be educated and trained to become better leaders. There will also be some time for us to celebrate the 60th Anniversary for NCPBL as well as activities and competitions such as a 50’s theme costume contest. I believe this will be an overall positive experience for our club and am looking forward to learning how to grow as a leader.
