Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The top-performing stock in the FTSE 100 over the past decade wasn’t some high-flying tech company or consumer goods champion. It was, in fact, equipment rental group Ashtead (LSE: AHT).Over the past decade, shares in this company have returned nearly 43% per annum. That’s enough to turn every £1,000 invested in 2009 to approximately £35,000 today. It looks as if the company can keep this performance going over the next decade as well.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A profitable ventureRenting construction equipment isn’t a particularly exciting business, but it is lucrative. Most small builders can’t afford to buy much of the equipment they use on a day-to-day basis. It’s also inefficient for businesses, many of which are sole traders, to buy a piece of equipment they’re only going to use once or twice.This is where Ashtead can help. Thanks to its size, the company has no problem buying pieces of kit in whatever quantities. It can usually negotiate a discount with suppliers because it’s such a large customer. What’s more, whereas a sole trader might use a piece of kit just once, Ashtead can rent its equipment out to a different customer every day.This business model is highly profitable. The company’s return on equity — a measure of profitability on shareholder funds — has averaged 30% for the past six years. This puts Ashtead in the top 10% of the most profitable public businesses traded on the London Stock Exchange.This ratio suggests that for every £100 the company invests in new equipment, it can make a 30% return over a year. That gives a payback period of just two and a half years.These are just back-of-the-envelope calculations, but they clearly show just how profitable the equipment rental industry is, and why Ashtead has been such a lucrative investment over the past decade.Reinvesting profitsIf the firm continues to reinvest its earnings as it has done in the past, the sky could be the limit for earnings here. Even though the company has a market capitalisation of nearly £12bn, and reported total sales of £4.5bn last year, it’s still tiny in comparison to the size of the global construction equipment market.Estimates suggest the market could be worth as much as £215bn by 2025. So, even if Ashtead manages to quadruple its revenues from current levels, it will still make up less than 10% of the global market.As such, it looks as if this company will continue to generate market-beating returns for investors. Right now, the stock seems undervalued compared to the group’s long term potential. It’s dealing at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 13.2. A dividend yield of 1.7% is on offer as well.Considering Ashtead’s historical growth rate, and the potential size of the global construction equipment market, it seems highly likely to me that the company can repeat its successes of the past 10 years over the next decade.  Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

Disciplinary panel sanctions Los Angeles Bishop J. Jon Bruno

first_imgDisciplinary panel sanctions Los Angeles Bishop J. Jon Bruno Bishop accused of trying again to sell church at heart of pending disciplinary case Thomas Drummond says: Joseph Henderson says: June 21, 2017 at 8:22 pm In his letter of invitation, Archbishop Williams said, “with the recommendations of the Windsor Report particularly in mind, I have to reserve the right to withhold or withdraw invitations from bishops whose appointment, actions or manner of life have caused exceptionally serious division or scandal within the Communion.” The Windsor Report called for a moratorium on further acts that create division, ie consecration of another gay bishop, and performing same gender blessings. Bishops were called upon to examine whether they in fact would uphold Windsor, and if so, then they would be invited to participate in the councils of the Church. Bishop Bruno was invited because such an assent was understood, yet he did not uphold The Windsor Report recommendations in his own diocese. Andrew G. Kadel says: Bruno Hearing, Property The Reverend Canon Susan Russell says: June 24, 2017 at 5:28 pm The Shepherd, with a fiduciary obligation to his flock, falls victim to the idol of filthy lucre, deposes two congregations from their oceanfront sanctuary, and enters into secret real estate contract to sell said sanctuary while appropriating the contract’s confidentiality clause as a fig leaf to hide his moral nakedness. Rector Knoxville, TN June 24, 2017 at 8:35 pm RE: “the Bishop, as long as he is the Bishop, has the legal right to sell the church”. I don’t know about that. If I were purchasing St. James in this secret deal, I would insist upon TEC’s sign off to clear title. After all, the National Church intervened in the original LA lawsuits, and filed suit in other jurisdictions where Bishops took out the Diocese and many member churches. Thus, one can only conclude that according to TEC’s attorneys, it is the ultimate owner of all Episcopal Church property (at least when it comes to assets; TEC undoubtedly would demur if asked to assume liabilities :). June 20, 2017 at 1:52 am Just fyi, tons of Episcopal bishops were looking the other way on same-gender marriages for quite a long time, as they believed their conscience dictated. doing so hardly establishes a “clear pattern of deceit”. New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Doug Desper says: June 25, 2017 at 2:11 pm How long will the hearing panel exacerbate the situation with out rendering a conclusion ?Maybe they do not have the authority over Bruno? Bruno stated when telling the congregation he was the owner of St.James and it was his to do with it as he pleased, at his sole discretion and he was selling the property. The operation of the church from the Rededication ceremony of a sanctuary for the community in which he asked for the attendees help in this mission parallels a Ponzi scheme,only here a monetary reward was not promised the sanctuary for worship was the reward offered in return. To lie dressed in costume of an ecclesiastical to persuade the attendants to contribute money , time and efforts under the name of the Episcopal church seems deceptive by Bruno,if the church does not remain as dedicated. If the dedication was from Church Bruno and he made this known at the time of dedication he was the sole owner and operator truth and transparency would have prevailed. Rather he lied again and again durning his sermon when he asked the congregation to come to the Vicars Vision knowing there was no vision he was just going to tell the congregation he owned the church and was selling it. When asked if the church needed the money? He said no. To lie to the people attending church during the services represents the right or wrong ,good or evil conflict that struggles between satin and god. In the position Bruno was allowed to be representing the Episcopal church he should be held to the highest of standards. Possibly higher than the Episcopal church is willing to offer. Possiblyexorbitant land values have became more valuable than the church’s representation. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA June 19, 2017 at 4:08 pm “Objections” made by Bishop Bruno’s legal team to the Panel’s request that he disclose whether St. James had been sold, are not evidence that the sale occurred. However, the panel obviously found the objections to be without merit. Since the response was evasive and non-responsive, the Panel concluded that if there was no sale, the Bishop could have simply responded to with a denial rather than a “none of your business” objection.The ENS article does not explain in detail whether the Panel has the power or jurisdiction to order the Bishop not to sell St. James. Legal title to the property is held in the name of the Bishop as a “corp. sole,” which means the Bishop, as long as he is the Bishop, has the legal right to sell the church. The Bishop may well believe, and have been advised by his attorneys, that the Panel will have to confirm his legal authority to sell the property, and that at worst, the Panel can only find that he could have handled the situation “better,” or issue a public reprimand. It will be interesting to see how the Bishop responds to the Panel’s prohibitory order.I care not whether Bishop Bruno is reprimanded for his actions in trying to sell St. James the Great. My sympathies are with the church members who have been locked out of their church for two years now. In his closing brief, Counsel for the loyal members of St. James urged the Panel to find a resolution that would promote unity and reconciliation with the Bishop, which included: “Requiring that St. James promptly be reopened for Episcopal worship under the auspices of an independent member of the diocese, . . . .” If the Bishop has sold the church, then that train may have left the station. If we assume the Bishop is not a vengeful man, then we must also assume that the Diocese is in desperate need of money. St. James is just one of many properties worth millions of dollars to a Diocese thirsty to fund its political agenda. In an era of declining membership and pledges, the sad case of St. James the Great will be the poster child for why members should not invest their energy or capital to improve church property owned by a Bishop as a “corp. sole.” Curate Diocese of Nebraska June 19, 2017 at 7:33 pm If he is deposed as a bishop, then he is not a bishop, and therefore not THE bishop and cannot be corp. sole. I suspect this also applies when under suspension, though I am not an attorney or canonist. The questions here are fundamentally questions of honesty–the Episcopal Church was never designed as an absolute monarchy, where the bishop as CEO can act with absolute impunity–it is perhaps slightly messy to work in a church designed as a constitutional democracy, but it is deeply dishonest to subvert that in the misguided idea that a “strong” “leader” can make decisions that will get the church out of its financial crises. In fact it is this sort of thing that got us into these things. Comments are closed.

Jon Bruno spent nearly seven hours March 29 and 30 talking to the Hearing Panel considering the disciplinary action against him. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Church ecclesiastical disciplinary panel considering a complaint against Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop J. Jon Bruno has sanctioned the bishop for again trying to sell St. James the Great Episcopal Church.The Hearing Panel told Bruno on June 17 that he is prohibited from “selling or conveying or contracting to sell or convey the St. James property until further order of the Hearing Panel.”The original case against Bruno involves his unsuccessful 2015 attempt to sell the church in Newport Beach, California, to a condominium developer for $15 million in cash. That effort prompted the members of St. James to bring misconduct allegations against Bruno. The members alleged Bruno violated Church law. The Hearing Panel is still considering whether or how to discipline Bruno.One of the complainants in the case contacted the Hearing Panel earlier this month with what is known as a “colorable” or plausible legal claim that Bruno may have entered into another contract to sell the St. James property, according to the panel’s notice. Bruno then refused to confirm or deny the alleged contract.The Hearing Panel said that if Bruno has tried to sell the church property, or has sold it, before the panel decided the original case against him that conduct is “disruptive, dilatory and otherwise contrary to the integrity of this proceeding.” The same is true of his failure to give the panel the information it asked for about the accusations, the notice said. Such behavior violates the portion of canon law which governs the behavior of clerics who face disciplinary actions (Canon IV.13.9(a) page 151 here).A hearing on the original accusations, including engaging in conduct unbecoming a member of the clergy took place March 28-30 in Pasadena, California. Attorneys representing the Episcopal Church and Bruno filed written closing briefs a month after the hearing ended. The Hearing Panel has not ruled on the initial complaint.St. James was one of four properties that the diocese spent close to $10 million in litigation to recover from disaffiliated Episcopalians who broke with the Church over its policies on women’s ordination and the full inclusion of LGBTQI members in the life of the Church, including ordained ministry.Diocese of Los Angeles Chancellor Richard Zevnik and Vice Chancellor Julie Dean Larsen have asked the panel to dismiss the entire case against Bruno. They have said that a “civil lawsuit, political actions and social media campaign” mounted by members of St. James the Great in Newport Beach were “wrongfully, but successfully and strategically, designed to stop the sale of [the] 40,000-square foot church property” on what is known as Lido Island, a prosperous housing development sporting a yacht club.The Church’s clergy disciplinary canon, the chancellors argue, is “not intended to be used as a weapon to challenge a diocesan bishop’s decisions regarding the administration and stewardship of his or her diocese.”Episcopal Church Attorney Raymond “Jerry” Coughlan has said that Bruno is guilty of “serious misconduct” in violating three sections of the Title IV canons: “failing to exercise his ministry in accordance with applicable church canons,” “conduct involving dishonesty, deceit or misrepresentation” and “conduct unbecoming a member of the clergy. He said in his closing brief that the panel must conclude that Bruno’s conduct was “calculated, pervasive and long-running.”Because of those violations and because “he shows no sign of recognizing even the possibility of his misconduct,” Coughlan recommended that panel suspend Bruno from ministry for at least a year.However, because he said such a sentence would only exacerbate the conflict and not lead to reconciliation, Coughlan urged the panel to use its “broad authority” to craft a remedy that “looks forward creatively to heal the division now existing in the Los Angeles diocese.”Bruno turns 72, the Church’s mandatory retirement age, in late 2018. Incoming Bishop Coadjutor John Taylor, his successor, is scheduled to be ordained and consecrated on July 8.Because none of the previous steps of the Title IV disciplinary process resolved the issue, when the complaints against Bruno got to the point of seating a Hearing Panel, the Episcopal Church replaced St. James as the complainant in the case. Coughlan, representing the Episcopal Church, presented the case to the panel. According to the Title IV process, the Church pays for the costs of the disciplinary process for bishops.Diocese of Southern Virginia Bishop Herman Hollerith IV is president of the Hearing Panel. The panel, appointed by the Disciplinary Board for Bishops from among its members, also includes Rhode Island Bishop Nicholas Knisely, North Dakota Bishop Michael Smith, the Rev. Erik Larsen of Rhode Island and Deborah Stokes of Southern Ohio.Previous ENS coverage is here.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is senior editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

I highly recommend Brian McLaren’s important new book, “The Great Spiritual Migration: How The World’s Largest Religion Is seeking A Better Way To be Christian.” He argues we need to move from orthodoxy to an emphasis on orthopraxy. How we live is more important that the beliefs that often divide us as Christians. I wish every priest and lay leader in TEC would read McLaren’s Chapter 3, “Learning How to Love,” and meditate on his teaching about “love of neighbor, self, the earth, and God.” Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT mike geibel says: June 29, 2017 at 7:23 pm The report somewhat misrepresents St. James— the present issues are not about when a group in control at the church left the Diocese of Los Angeles in opposition to ordination of women and full inclusion of LGBT persons in the life and ministry of the church. The property and ministry was returned to the diocese– and properly so– and parishioners were working hard to re-establish and continue a ministry through the Diocese that was fully inclusive. The abuse of power issue was in regards to the sale of the property and misrepresentation of facts to the parish, vestry, and clergy. If the property is sold with escrow set to close on July 7– the sale should be challenged as an illegal sale. That is a sale that should not go through for all sorts of reasons. But facts would indicate that St. James– after being returned to the diocese– was on the road to being an inclusive and faithful ministry in the community. Those who oppose full inclusion of women and of LGBT persons in the life of the church should give it up and quit dragging it into every discussion– that ship has sailed, thank God! Get over it! Give witness to a church that celebrates God’s inclusive love for all people. In this case– the issue and damage to the church is the matter of abuse of power. The hierarchical structure of the church is not for the purpose of facilitating lack of transparency in decision making. We have enough alternative facts nationally. We can do without “making up the facts” in the church. Richard Nixon said something like “The people need to know their president isn’t a crook.” In the church the people need to know that the only crook is the one that represents a Shepherd’s crook and servant role represented by the Crozier. A fair resolution of this matter should give witness to the idea that the Episcopal church knows the differences between a shepherd’s tool and a scepter and that abuse of power is neither to be accepted nor tolerated. June 29, 2017 at 6:39 pm Refresh my memory – but wasn’t part of the problem the factThat Bishop Bruno didn’t inform the Executive Committee of the diocese about the sale offer? And according rding ttheir canons, this was necessary properTo the sale. Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Bath, NC Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Noah Kilian says: Doug Desper says: Submit an Event Listing June 26, 2017 at 10:17 pm That was a brilliant comment, above.The Episcopal Church where I grew up, St. Bartholomew’s Tonawanda NY, where my parents, in-laws and their friends spend their time and hard earned money year after year to improve the church, the church where I was confirmed and married and where my son was baptised, was lost to the arrogant bishop of the Diocese of Western New York even though St. Bartholomews had the largest congregation in all of New York State. The congregation didn’t have the heart to fight the bishop so they simply moved away, to an abandoned synagogue. The Diocese of Western New York sold its very valuable headquarters building for a profit and moved all of the diocesan operations into what was formerly St. Bartholomew’s church. I have imagined the arrogant bishop staring at the beautiful stained glass windows that my parents’ generation donated after several years of saving money for that project. I have imagined the arrogant bishop picking roses in the church’s rose garden donated in the name of my mother-in-law’s best friend.The response in my family was to completely cut off attendance and donations to ANY Episcopal Church. I will never set foot in an Episcopal Church again. When I was in critical condition in a hospital after a train I was riding in crashed, my distraught husband mistakenly told the hospital admissions staff that I was an Episcopalian. When an Episcopal priest showed up in my hospital room 4 days after I almost died, I said “Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest?” and my son threw him out.If today’s Episcopal clergy like Bishop Bruno are sad that attendance at Episcopal Churches throughout the USA is “down” they need to recognize that they brought the church’s decline upon themselves. June 25, 2017 at 7:14 am On Friday, June 23, the Orange County Register reports that Bishop Bruno had already secretly sold St. James the Great to developer Burnham Ward in April.

Fred Fenton says: Rector Albany, NY Director of Music Morristown, NJ June 19, 2017 at 2:12 pm Retirement age does not lessen the reality of underhanded and dishonest interactions. Let us not forget that this is the same bishop who knew of uncanonical same gender marriages being performed in his diocese before Lambeth a decade ago. Yet, to be invited to Lambeth he pledged to uphold the long-standing Lambeth Sexuality and Marriage Resolution 1.10 — all the while intending to keep ignoring it. A clear pattern of deceit is shown. If Bishop Bruno is guilty of unpriestly conduct and duplicitous dealings then let right be done regardless of age. If all he gets is a hand slap, a frown, and then a golden parachute then this Church has lost all credibility and has the best preacher union in Christendom.

On this day: Burr slays Hamilton in duel

first_img Please enter your name here Please enter your comment! Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. From The History ChannelIn a duel held in Weehawken, New Jersey, Vice President Aaron Burr fatally shoots his long-time political antagonist Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton, a leading Federalist and the chief architect of America’s political economy, died the following day.Alexander Hamilton, born on the Caribbean island of Nevis, came to the American colonies in 1773 as a poor immigrant. (There is some controversy as to the year of his birth, but it was either 1755 or 1757.) In 1776, he joined the Continental Army in the American Revolution, and his relentless energy and remarkable intelligence brought him to the attention of General George Washington, who took him on as an aid. Ten years later, Hamilton served as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, and he led the fight to win ratification of the final document, which created the kind of strong, centralized government that he favored. In 1789, he was appointed the first secretary of the treasury by President Washington, and during the next six years he crafted a sophisticated monetary policy that saved the young U.S. government from collapse. With the emergence of political parties, Hamilton was regarded as a leader of the Federalists.Aaron Burr, born into a prestigious New Jersey family in 1756, was also intellectually gifted, and he graduated from the College of New Jersey (later Princeton) at the age of 17. He joined the Continental Army in 1775 and distinguished himself during the Patriot attack on Quebec. A masterful politician, he was elected to the New State Assembly in 1783 and later served as state attorney. In 1790, he defeated Alexander Hamilton’s father-in-law in a race for the U.S. Senate.Hamilton came to detest Burr, whom he regarded as a dangerous opportunist, and he often spoke ill of him. When Burr ran for the vice presidency in 1796 on Thomas Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican ticket (the forerunner of the Democratic Party), Hamilton launched a series of public attacks against Burr, stating, “I feel it is a religious duty to oppose his career.” John Adams won the presidency, and in 1797 Burr left the Senate and returned to the New York Assembly.In 1800, Jefferson chose Burr again as his running mate. Burr aided the Democratic-Republican ticket by publishing a confidential document that Hamilton had written criticizing his fellow Federalist President John Adams. This caused a rift in the Federalists and helped Jefferson and Burr win the election with 73 electoral votes each. Affairs of honor were commonplace in America at the time, and the complex rules governing them usually led to an honorable resolution before any actual firing of weapons. In fact, the outspoken Hamilton had been involved in several affairs of honor in his life, and he had resolved most of them peaceably. No such recourse was found with Burr, however, and on July 11, 1804, the enemies met at 7 a.m. at the dueling grounds near Weehawken, New Jersey. It was the same spot where Hamilton’s son had died defending his father’s honor in 1801.There are conflicting accounts of what happened next. According to Hamilton’s “second”–his assistant and witness in the duel–Hamilton decided the duel was morally wrong and deliberately fired into the air. Burr’s second claimed that Hamilton fired at Burr and missed. What happened next is agreed upon: Burr shot Hamilton in the stomach, and the bullet lodged next to his spine. Hamilton was taken back to New York, and he died the next afternoon.For a longer version of this article, or for more articles and videos on this day in history, go here.

For every unique tweet used from the generator BBD Perfect Storm will donate 10p to SCT, with an overall donation target of £1000.#XmashTAG raises funds for SCTThe campaign launched on Giving Tuesday and is expected to run until the end of December. It is being promoted through Twitter.Seb Hill, executive creative director at BBD Perfect Storm, said:“Our industry, and indeed the world, is obsessed with ridiculous hashtags. We hope people see the ironic cliché in this campaign and embrace the XmashTag to spread some #ChristmasJoy, whilst doing some good at the same time.” Tagged with: christmas hashtag Twitter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Fort Worth Fire plays Arlington Fire in benefit hockey game

first_imgMark Johnson: the Board of Trustees’ chairman and his vision for TCU Hunter Geiselhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/hunter-geisel/ + posts Facebook printThe Fort Worth Fire Department played against the Arlington Fire Department in a fundraising benefit game of ice hockey.The benefit game was held at the Brahmas Arena in North Richland Hills where friends and family members of both fire departments watched firefighters clad in hockey gear play in friendly competition while fundraising for the Sisterhood of Arlington Fire Department (Sisterhood of AFD).The Sisterhood of AFD is a support group which helps families of AFD firefighters and employees, builds communities among those families and aids the local Arlington community through charitable assistance.Hillary Schwanbeck, the president of the Sisterhood of AFD, said the group initially started as a Facebook group called “Arlington Firefighter Wives” created by Lauren Arias, vice president of membership, in November 2015.“We knew it could be much more,” Schwanbeck said. “And sought to find an existing non-profit to sponsor us during our start-up phase.”The Arlington Fire Charitable Group (AFCG) later took the Sisterhood of AFD under their umbrella as a subgroup.Each officer in the group is a wife of an Arlington firefighter, but Schwanbeck said their membership also extends to any family members of active or retired Arlington firefighters.Last year, the Sisterhood of AFD raised over $3,000 for AFD families who have experienced major life events such as having a baby, missing work due to injury or illness or who have recently lost an active or retired Arlington firefighter.This year, they came a little short of last year’s total at $2,700 during the hockey game.Schwanbeck said the group aims to raise at least $6,000 so they have enough money to give freely and willingly to AFD families as needs arise.“Obviously, the more money the better,” Schwanbeck said. “As more annual income would allow us to continue to host more community-building and charitable events.”Below is an interactive roster of the Fort Worth Fire Department’s hockey team.编辑触摸共享全屏来源 www.the109.org制作你自己的了解更多接触图片分享图像…全屏Chris Ballard, a Fort Worth firefighter and the team coordinator and goalie for the FWFD hockey team, said as much as he and anyone like to win, that wasn’t the point of Saturday’s event.“Every charity game, we step forward,” Ballard said. “We represent the Fort Worth Fire Department and we just want to do good… and whatever the game brings to help another family or organization or something, we want to be a part.”Ballard said that Fort Worth citizens can help contribute to events like the hockey game by volunteering, sponsoring firefighters and donating to the charity.“People are very, very giving when we really have events that go toward benefits fallen officers, fallen firefighters,” Ballard said. “Events like today really helped an organization give back to the families and the community, so that’s one of the most helpful things you can do other than skate or be on the job.”Schwanbeck said that regardless of where you live, everyone should be willing to step out and give back to those who put their lives on the line to save others.If people or businesses want to get involved for another event, the Sisterhood of AFD is having their annual Arlington Firefighters Golf Tournament on June 5.Anyone can reach out to the Sisterhood of AFD by going to their Facebook page or emailing them at [email protected] if they want to help or get involved with the group.

TCU students volunteer with nonprofit to eliminate ‘dream deserts’

Then, students participate in a hands-on activity relating to the line of the work.Blake Bengtson became president of the TCU chapter this January and is already trying to introduce new programs such as fashion merchandising activities.“We were experimenting with it [fashion merchandising activity] to see how successful it could be,” Bengtson said. “Since the national office is in Fort Worth, we get the benefit of being a chapter who works with a lot of new ideas before they get rolled out to other campuses.”A child ties a bracelet on a volunteer during the fashion merchandising programming (Ryder Buttry/TCu360).Throughout each semester, the TCU students said they see the kids’ passions and dreams evolve and flourish.“[My] favorite part is at the end of the semester when you’re talking to a kid who at the beginning of the semester had no idea what they wanted to do, but at the end of the semester they’re constantly giving you the same answer on a week in and week out basis,” Bengtson said.Sophomore biology major Eli Reynolds said he loves seeing the kids’ energy focused in on the new fields they’re exposed to through the program.A girl enjoys pizza after the day’s activity is finished (Ryder Buttry/TCU360).“The kids have so much energy,” Reynolds said. “It’s just cool to see once that energy is kind of focused in on a passion. It’s really cool to see them … get excited about things they don’t normally see.”The program doesn’t just benefit the younger children, though. Bengtson said volunteering with the program has made him realize how sheltered he was in his own community growing up.“Having that experience of being exposed to a background other than my own and realizing that it’s not necessarily better or worse, it’s just different,” Bengtson said. “I think that’s a huge learning experience for me, personally.”Students who want to get involved can email [email protected] or learn more here.
