We have a heated debate on Discovery Day versus National Heroes Day. With the government set today to officially sign into effect the National Heroes Act – making the 2nd Monday every October the National Heroes Day Holiday, eliminating Discovery Day as a holiday – we discuss whether this is the right way forward, and whether we have effectively capitalized on the historical significance of Discovery Day.
And the National L.E.A.D. Institute continues its work as a community correctional organization, providing assistance for “at risk” school age juveniles and pre- & post- incarceration prison inmates. President & CEO Troy Clarke tells us more about the work of L.E.A.D. (Leadership, Esteem, Ability, Discipline), and the official launch of its North Carolina Operations in Raleigh on October 19.
