Small Acts, Big Impact.

Posted by

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.”- Robin Williams 

Since 2010, the National Conference Center has partnered with Belmont Ridge Middle School to give eight-grade students an opportunity to learn about hospitality and business operations. Through the business-school partnership program, NCC has invited the students for a variety of fun-filled sessions including workshops on exceptional customer service to culinary sessions with Executive Chef Mason. Our partnership has given both the students and NCC employees invaluable learning experiences and reinforce our commitment to education and making a difference in the community.

We recently learned about the incredible story of Phoebe Lisle, one of the school’s seventh-grade students. In a very poignant, handwritten note to President Obama, Pheobe expressed the need for action to be taken, surrounding the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. Her candid words caught the attention of the White House and prompted an invitation to the president’s gun control press conference on January 16. At just age 13, Pheobe reminds that even the smallest actions can have a large impact. Read more about her story here.

    First off I would like to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
    wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!

    that the key rail stop has been mounted behind
    the keys, it will then ensure that they remain safe

    Have your threshold sit just below the kick drum’s peaks for the best effect.
