TIP OF THE WEEK: Show Up and Do the Work No matter what anyone says, just show up and do the work. If they praise you, show up and do the work. If they criticize you, show up and do the work. If no one even notices you, just show up and do the work. Just keep showing up, doing the work, and leading the way. Lead with passion. Fuel up with optimism. Have faith. Power up with love. Maintain hope. Be stubborn. Fight the good fight. Refuse to give up. Ignore the critics. Believe in the impossible. Show up. Do the work. You’ll be glad you did. -Jon Gordon (Excerpt from The Power of Positive Leadership)

The flag that will be Flown Friday September 13 During the Uniontown Vs Jayhawk-Linn FB game is from the coffin of First Lieutenant Eugene Kohfield who was a United States Air Force helicopter pilot. September 13, 1951, while flying a search and rescue mission for a downed pilot, his aircraft was hit by enemy fire, the helicopter crashed and he and the crew were killed. As we listen to the National Anthem and face the flag, may we remember all who have given their lives for our freedom Including The 9/11 Extremely Brave First responders, Their Families , Their Communities & The Entire USA. God Bless America; Land of the Free Because Of the Brave.
