November Newsletter 2022

The Pine Bluff (AR) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, a community organization, partnered with Jack Robey

Jr. High to bring educational and career information to scholars. Students were encouraged to begin thinking

about their future and to develop a vision of what they would like their lives to look like, as well as what they

would need to do to get there. Mr. Audreon Duncan, JRJH Career Development Instructor, regularly exposes

scholars to activities to help them figure out what they want to do in life.

Mr. Duncan puts a lot of effort into setting them up for success by giving them opportunities to learn and ex-

perience various career related activities, such as The LIFE Program provided by the Links Chapter. The pro-

gram goal is to create a future job pool of young students that focus on careers in international business and

foreign affairs, according to Mrs. Eula Liddell, ITS Facet, Chair and Mrs.

Tenita Shannon-Gragg Chapter, President. Mrs. Kanika Calvin Davis, a

Pine Bluff native was the presenter that told her incredible story and mo-

tivated scholars to reach for their own goals. She explained that if you

know what you want and you want it badly enough, you will eventually

find a way to get it, as she has with the United States Department of Ag-

riculture Farm Service Agency, as a National Outreach Specialist. Mrs.

Davis' hope is that scholars remember that, “The memories that you

leave with the people you meet is what carries on the longest, so make

a positive impact on people no matter what you decide to do in life.”

Mrs. Dorothy Holt, ITS Facet, Member, was the moderator for the Virtual/

Hybrid Presentation. Mr. Duncan gave the closing remarks and ex-

Scholars engaged in presentation front from left: Kaniya Christopher, Kendall Gates, Charles Moore, Chandler Westmoreland and Gissel Zelaya

plained to scholars that, “Your future depends on what you do today, so

preparation starts today!”
