Mock Draft Monday: Notre Dame Safety Kyle Hamilton Falls, North Carolina's Sam Howell Rises

Locked On NFL Draft

New Mock Draft Monday and New Number One overall pick. Non-playoff team draft slots are set. Where do the players fall? Crock and Ryan take turns picking. Jacksonville Jaguars are best not overthinking things this offseason. The Kayvon Thibodeuax Aiden Hutchinson debate will be a big one, but the Jags should rest assured in proven talent out of Oregon. Notre Dame's Kyle Hamilton is a dynamic playmaker, but will his positional value cause him to fall out of the top five, potentially the top ten? The draft is all about production and projection. How players like Sam Howell, David Ojabo, and Derrick Stingley are impacted by those evaluations. And how that could lead to a new signal caller in the city of brotherly love as the Philadelphia Eagles land a pure passer under center in this week's Mock Draft Monday. Eric Crocker, former NFL/AFL cornerback and Ryan Tracy, Founder of Rogue Analytics & Personnel Consulting bring the NFL Draft to life every day with insight and analysis on college football prospects, the NFL Front Office evaluation process and the NFL on Locked on NFL Draft, part of the Locked on Podcast Network. #NFL #NFLDraft Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Incumbent Republican Richard Burr is retiring, and the state has been trending more and more blue.

Patti Dobrowolski 00:54 Oh, my gosh. So this is Leanne Taylor Knight. She's the Executive Director and COO of the DeBruce Foundation in Kansas City. Now DeBruce Foundation is doing some amazing things. Oh, thanks, Patti. They are expanding economic pathways for people in this city and beyond, right in the whole state. And I want to just say that, before she started to do this, which is all about research and helping people discover their agilities and providing them with tools so they can get jobs in the city. Right. And elsewhere. She was the assistant superintendent of schools in K-12. I love that here. And you were an educator forever, weren't you and you advise and all kinds of national education forums and you sit on like a billion boards. I'm not going to list them here. But that's who you are. In a nutshell. I'm so glad that you're here. Thank you, Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 01:48 Oh, a teacher at heart. It is so fun to be here. And it's so fun to have all of you with us. So thank you so much, Patti, for coming to Kansas City and us being actually able to film here. Patti Dobrowolski 01:59 I know it's fantastic now. So um, I know you as a kind, a generous, an amazing Rockstar that is changing your community. I mean, that's what you're dedicated to. And you're fortunate enough to have a career in a path where you actually are that's enabled. And so that was good job in manifesting that. I would just say, because yeah, you're in the sweet spot of who you are. But it's not all of who you are. So tell the audience a little bit about Leigh Anne Taylor Knight. Tell us did you grew up here and anything you want to tell about your past? And bring us up to the present? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 02:38 Yeah, thanks. So I was born and raised in a small town in mid Missouri and Fayette and I grew up to parents, dad was a veterinarian, and mom was busy doing every volunteer job there was. And I think that's probably one of the first places I learned how to pivot was I had a mother who was whatever was the flavour of the day, my mom was in the middle of it, she was leaving it and she was doing it. And so I probably saw that along the way, I went to college and thought I was actually going to be designing buildings like the one in which we sit. So I have a degree in Environmental Design picked up a degree in education along the way. And I started teaching kids and they just caught my heart. And so to this day, I'm still a teacher at heart. So even the work that I do now at the foundation is all about improving the quality of life for others in their near and far environments and actually developing them so that they have that capability of doing that themselves. Right. And so I grew up on a farm, I grew up in a place where it was like, Hey, you got to figure out how to make this work in this situation. And so that was instrumental in my teaching and my education, leadership career. And I did do a little stent with universities, and did some research and those kinds of things, which helped bring me here to the diverse foundation. Patti Dobrowolski 03:53 And she was just want to say that she was like a major cheerleader here. So if you ever need a cheer squad, Leanne Taylor night is it right here? I'm just saying she's been mine below and I've been down, Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 04:05 But you're like the pep club leader like we were our two peas in a pod. We were made to go together. We didn't go to high school together, but we could have we should change. That's rightm, changed right now. Patti Dobrowolski 04:16 So you started off going into this architecture field, the design field? Yeah. How did you decide at that point, when you had that, and you had the education? What happened at that? And how did you reconcile that with yourself for what you'd invested already? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 04:34 Yeah. Well, I really kept thinking about like, well, you know, the job I really want to have is I want to be at this university and helping others get excited about what they are doing and then be a dean of students and a chancellor. And so I was kind of looking at that career ladder and realising, well, in order to do that, you actually have to be a teacher in the classroom too. So I was like, Okay, I'll go get my doctorate in Environmental Design. I truly was headed to Texas Tech. I was coming when out of Mizzou, and headed there to Texas Tech, and then there was this opportunity that came for me to go ahead and teach in Columbia Public Schools when I was getting there and getting the second degree in education. And I just took it up. And I started working with students who had been at our alternative school. And these were kids who had been basically nothing had worked for them. That's right. They were the kids who no middle school, no junior high, no high school, nothing had worked for them. And you know, probably many people thought that those are those kids, I just don't want to have to deal with those. And I looked at those kids. And I was like, these are amazing kids. They have phenomenal talents. It's just that nobody's ever tapped into them. And I was on a staff of like teachers, and a principal who are like, it's our job to meet them where they are. And so that has continued to just be a theme in my life is like, Okay, folks, it's not about finding the best blueberries and bringing them into your pie. It's like meeting that blueberry wherever it is, and, you know, putting the right ingredients in so that you can have the best pie, but it is literally about meeting every single person where they are. And I just have that in my heart. And I just have had so many opportunities to get to do that in my life. Patti Dobrowolski 06:09 Wow. I love that. Because I think often in the Uber car coming here, today, I was I was talking to the guy who was from Kenya. And he was asking me, I was talking about my father who had been a, you know, concrete guy, right, a civil engineer, because he was studying to be a civil engineer. And so we were talking about how do you get on a career track to become something? And then what do you do when there are expectations of you to be one thing or another? Did you have any of that in your family to deal with that? You know, they had an expectation of what you would do or who you'd become? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 06:48 Yeah, well, I probably did grew up in a family that always said, not, are you going to college? But where are you going to college. So I did grow up in one of those families. However, you know, the mould broke after me, the first child going through because the second child took a different trajectory, and went through the military, and the third child took seven years to get through college. So really, we all were like, well, we're not really doing what we're supposed to be, you know, so there might have been some of that. But definitely, I certainly felt along the way that there was an expectation, I've always believed this. I mean, this is at the heart of my faith, which is to those who much is given much as expected. And so I am grateful to God for the gifts and the people with who he has surrounded me with in my lifetime. And so the things though, that goes with that is never miss an opportunity. So if somebody said, Well, I don't know, would you like to try this? And that's what happened to me along the way is somebody said, Oh, we have this job in Kansas City, we would love to have you come and think about this job in Kansas City. Well, I'm not really thinking about going to Kansas City, I'm gonna move to North Carolina. Well, no, it's a great opportunity. And so I've had people along the way who have said, will never miss the opportunity to at least have the conversation. And that's how I have pivoted into different places is because I'm not afraid to go have the conversation. If somebody says this could be a unique opportunity for you. And I would really encourage those of you who are listening and watching to like, basically have your ears open. Patti Dobrowolski 08:24 That's right. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 08:25 Listen for those opportunities. Patti Dobrowolski 08:27 Yes, yeah. Really, honestly, it's the mystery. And the joy of life is that if you're like a detective out there, following the clues, but you have to be aware of the clues that you're looking for, right, you have to understand what it is that you're capable of which you did, right. You knew, Okay, I've got this educational piece together, I've got this other things. And I'm going to go and do something and change the world. You had a good role model for that, too. But one of the things I wondered is, how did you get to the DeBruce Foundation? Like how did you end up in that because I met you right after you started there. That's when we met. And I had no idea. I thought you'd been there for years. That's how you were in the room. So how did you pivot into that? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 09:13 Well, you know, this is one of those again, I was running a research consortium covering a by state area, and somebody said to me, they're like. Hey, have you seen that the DeBruce Foundation needs some researchers in Education and Economics. And I was like, Ah, I have a whole group of researchers in Education and Economics, but I was like, Who is the DeBruce foundations? Oh, like, who are they? Very, very small footprint couldn't really find anything but I found a phone number and I was like, Ring Ring ring. Hello. And I get you know, press number one. If you want to speak with this person, press number two. If you want to speak with this person, press number three. If you want to speak with Mr. Bruce. I was like, Oh, Mr. Bruce, his name is on the foundation. Three done, and the next thing I knew I was speaking with with him. And so that would be my, I always asked the question like, what's the worst thing that could happen? They don't answer the phone, they say they won't speak with you. They say they won't meet with you, you have an idea to present. They say they don't like the idea. What is the worst case scenario? And they go, Well, can I live through that? Absolutely. So you know, I look there, nobody answers the phone, or nobody picks it up. And so literally, that's how I came to find out about what they were doing. And then it really was key to think about, okay, what are they doing? Hey, there are some strengths and some talents and some experiences that I have that can be value add to that. And then really, it was about Mr. DeBruce and other seeing that, yeah, maybe you're a good fit. Yeah, just being in the right place at the right time. But definitely. Patti Dobrowolski 10:47 Well, wait, wait, let's just roll back, because you picked up the phone, and you made the call, and you press three. And that I think, you know, I think that we are often so afraid to really go out there on the limb and take that risk. But that's what makes the difference. That's the call that's going to the audition, or going and calling the editor or getting on the phone with somebody who you think is going to take over your social media and getting a one on one conversation with them. Anytime you want to change something, you got to put yourself out there. And you're like such a great role model for that. Because you put yourself out there all the time. I mean, you're well put together, no doubt, but you do like walk a fine line of getting people to be real and talk about real things. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 11:32 Yeah, and you also have to celebrate the failures. One of the things we say around here is we're going to make mistakes, but we need to learn from them. And so kind of if you take that motto with your life. And of course, what we have tried to do here at the Foundation is we also want to help you understand what it is that you do well and what you like to do. I mean, that's where we started working with you, Patti is around the agilities and your piece about drawing your future. And for us the intersection of love you know what you like to do? And what you do? Well, we can draw amazing futures together. And I think I would absolutely encourage any of you who have not yet you have to go draw your future with Patti, you know, you have to get online and try that and do that. And be willing to think about what are those steps that I'm going to take today to get to that future that I want to have, and then know that like that future vision out there, it's just going to continue to change. And as you change and grow, right? That's only if the vision stays the same. Actually, I could kind of worry about that. Because that means that maybe you're kind of standing still in the same place. And that's not. Patti Dobrowolski 12:42 Have you ever had that experience yourself felt like you were stuck, and that you were like, I got to get out of this whatever this is. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 12:49 Daily. I mean, you know, it is it's like healing. Sometimes you're just like, I'm running into a brick wall issue, you know, so there are those and you have to like, oh, wait, you know, do the infinity sign, make my left brain connect to my right brain and get myself into another point? You've taught me a lot? Patti Dobrowolski 13:11 Well, tell me though, do you get into sticky conversations with people in your city and county and community around change, their willingness to change or not change? I mean, really, we're in the centre, we're in the heart of the country here. So I'm curious, you have this mission to expand economic pathways for everybody. But I don't know that everybody's on board with that? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 13:36 Well, because change is scary, right? Patti, it's really scary. And it messes with power structures. Anytime you think about change, then you think about status quo, and you think about certain things changing and some people losing power and other people gaining power. And, you know, that's where in the space of how much can you think about being in a life of abundance, and not scarcity? And how can you kind of thought back that scarcity mindset and think about I mean, early on, in college, sometime, someone said to me, you don't have to step on someone else to get ahead. Yep. And there's enough out there for everyone. And I can remember being in college, hearing another female leader talk about that. And I thought, You know what, she is exactly right. I don't have to step on somebody else to get there. And there's enough out there for everyone. So my job is, is to just help get that word out. Patti Dobrowolski 14:31 That these days of that state of consciousness, because I don't think everybody sees it that way. I think people still are holding on to their little parcel and their things and their old ways of thinking. And I see like this huge divide. And what I love about what you're doing is that you're trying to bridge that gap. You're trying to bridge it in education, you're trying to bridge it in opportunity. You're trying to bridge it in really what I see as consciousness really the consciousness of a community like it has a consciousness Kansas City? Yeah. And so part of unwrapping that, I think, what's challenging about that for you what has been challenging? So, you laugh? Like, I'm gonna ask him or I'm gonna ask you a question about challenge. I have a challenging question. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 15:19 I will tell you, I mean, what is challenging is just, basically, there is gravity, I think, for people again, to stay in the space of comfort. So I have to always think about, like, what spins me out of that, what will take me out of that. And youth are very important in my life, anybody who knows me, I spent a lifetime thinking about how to help them even contribute back to what it's going to be. And so they are always good about helping you spin out of that gravity helping you think about how do you launch and think in new ways in different ways. But the same applies to other groups to most people recognise that if someone will just sit and listen to them, just like you're doing now, or just like people are listening now to us. There's never been a person who will not sit down and tell me their story, or sit down and tell me what their concern is, was something Yeah, yeah. If I will be disciplined enough to listen. Yeah. And so. Patti Dobrowolski 16:21 I'll and listen, without having an opinion about what they're saying or making judgement about it. I think this is the time that we live in, where we have to really suspend judgement. And I think, as we learn and grow more into understanding what trauma that we inflict, unbeknownst to ourselves in small and large ways that we understand what we've been through and how that impacts how we engage with other people. And how can we, I guess, you know, I came from a family like yours, where my mother was, like, on everything, she built a pathway for other people. So if we can continue to focus on that, that's incredible. And it's important, who do you surround yourself with in your community, and your life that are in that inner circle that can really be your own pep squad? Yeah, who do you have? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 17:15 So diversity of that network is extremely important? Yes. And so there are people from family, there are people from neighbourhoods, there are people from church, there are people here at work, there are people who have come from similar walks of life as I have, there are people who have come from very different walks of life as I have, than I have. And so I do tend to be a person who has a multitude of networks. It's not just one network. For me, it is a multitude of networks. And then I have heeded the advice over time with people saying to have a personal board of directors. And those are the people who you can go to who will be completely honest with you about what you're feeling and what you're thinking and what you're projecting and will really, you know, the existentialist you know, just hold up the mirror and say, just take a look right now, at what you just said to me, and then reflect that back. But I think the key for me has been to not just have a network, but to have a multitude of networks and for people to be from diverse backgrounds and diverse experiences. Patti Dobrowolski 18:22 because then it expands your capacity to understand I think, right, then you feel like, I think my experiences that I feel like then it's one story where it's everybody's individual story, but we're in the bigger picture of the story of life. Right, right. And so, you know, how do you manage all the stuff that you do? Like you're here, right at DeBruce, and you sit in on all these other meetings with these small startups here, too. So say a little bit about that. And were there any challenges in you starting to do that as a leader? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 18:58 Yes, this has been first of all, before being here. I've never worked in a foundation. I've never worked in philanthropy before. So that's been an interesting journey, because I had to learn about philanthropy is like, I've never been in that space. And then our philanthropy is actually funded by way of a host of companies that the generosity of such as that those profits, so that that's a profit driven kind of a world and so learning about different companies, the different industries have different sectors in which they are and just learning about how to have that mindset about things has been a very interesting journey for me, and I certainly it's been about asking questions, right? So it's like, I don't know. So I do a lot of things. I read a lot of things Read, read, read, read, ask a lot of questions. I mean, one day I got sent home with like five books about pricing so that I could you know, crash course in economics, I'm like, I don't know if we were entering a market we're gonna price something good. So you know, it was like it was lots of chocolate lots of colour. pencils, and lots of tabs and everything that I use that weekend to crash course on, you know, pricing, just because but for me, that's exciting. And the more I learn about something like that, the better I can, you know, help and mentor other people who are having to think about that share resources with them because I resource aware, and also do associative thinking and bring that back into, like, Oh, this is where this fits in might help with this board that I'm serving on this organisation, oh, this is where this fits in might help with our foundation, or oh, this is where it fits, it might help our church do something or my neighbourhood. Patti Dobrowolski 20:37 Yeah, I love that. I love that. And when you do that, when you bring it back to all those different things, when you sit back, like what do you see as the vision for you for your future? What's in that picture? Like, what do you want? You've already had this amazing legacy of things you've done, but what do you still want to do that you feel like if I just do that, that thing is going to really make a difference? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 21:03 Gosh, Patti. That's the most challenging question you asked me all day, she knows that I have ideation and my top five. And so I can come on line 54, we'll try. Patti Dobrowolski 21:15 To come up with one, maybe three would be okay. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 21:17 I would like to do all kinds of things. But you know, you mean that cooking show that we're all I was gonna say, you know that I do want to be a culinary artist. who, you know, watch for that to happen. Patti Dobrowolski 21:31 I know that's gonna happen. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 21:32 Somewhere in that channel, that is absolutely going to happen that is going to be on there. And absolutely, I think the other thing is, is even where I sit today, we as a foundation have a lot of ways to go. And so looking for the right strategic partners and the kinds of things that are going to happen, so that we can expand pathways to economic growth and opportunity. And then you know, the third thing is, is I'm always on the lookout because I am a person who like see what all the other opportunities are, you know, that are going to be out there. I think this current position feeds my soul in that way. Because we do have lots of different opportunities that we can do by way of the foundation by way of the business route. Patti Dobrowolski 22:11 Oh, and I love it. And you get to put your research mind to work every single day, like you're always looking at the numbers like what I love about her is that she wanted to have, like so many other they have what was the number that you wanted to take the agilities profiler? How many was it that you want to hit? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 22:27 Yeah, I wanted to get 10,000 plus one this year, and we actually are going to knock down the door at 40,000. So I'm so excited. We've had a great, great, great big booth. Patti Dobrowolski 22:38 Yeah, it's so great. I love it. So I think that part of it, right? So you're always like reaching, and you're always trying to explore, like, what is the new thing? What's the next thing to step into? And I think that is part of this mindset that you were talking about earlier, where you're watching for the signs for what's going to happen next, and how it all fits in the picture. Now you have a big job, like you're hard to get. I mean, I was so grateful that you would spend this time I was so happy to be here and do it in person. But what's your day look like? What does it look like your day from when you get up? Until you know when you go to sleep? I want to know what are your rituals? What do you do every day so that people who are really want to get some routine in place? Yeah, don't yours. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 23:25 Yeah, for me, it starts with prayer and reading my Bible, because that's super, super important to me. And it just a homing device and a connecting space for me to do that each day. And then exercise I always have a better day if I get some exercise in early and if I don't get it in early, I have to try to get it back in you know later in the evening. And then it's off I probably like a lot of people you know, you got to download figure out some emails that maybe you missed because people work 24/7 So you missed some things even if you went to bed the night before, and then it's in the office and then every day is different, like so some days we will have internal meetings you know, this is also living in this timeframe of some things are remote and some things are hybrid and some things are in person and so you know just trying to get back into the next normal that we have right now. So it can be meetings here in the city sometimes it's you know, meetings in other parts of the United States because we're working in places outside of Missouri and Kansas right now in Kansas City. So it can be out in those places. You know, on great days I like to get some again always trying to get some type of time outside so a lot of times that happens after my work day the dog and I do have dog so dog Max goes out I know you have dogs too. We love dogs. So out in the morning out again and that time is a lot of time self reflection time you Patti Yeah, yeah. Patti Dobrowolski 24:48 Do you do anything like set goals for what you want to accomplish that day or how you're going to be in that day? Is that part of your morning ritual or your evening ritual where you reflect on it? How does that work? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 24:59 Yeah, well, I do use a lovenger, I do literally have the tasks that I want to try to accomplish that day and the things that, you know, move to the next days. And I also am a person who I will like, think about ideas, like sometimes you just wake up or you're in the middle of a meeting, you get an idea about something else. I try to draw those Patti, because I think that they're more apt to come true, because Patty's taught me this. And they're more of just come true if I don't just write the word about it, but I do a little drawing about it. And so then, you know, at the end of the week, a lot of times I will syphon back through, Hey, what are the things that I did get done each day? What are the things across the weekend that I have to go back and fill in. And also, I just give myself permission, sometimes you just put a big X through it like, Okay, that didn't get done, it's not going to get done, it's going to go to the lower priority list, because other things become more of a priority. Patti Dobrowolski 25:50 Yeah. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 25:50 And so I do try to give myself permission to be okay, with like a part of the checklist not getting accomplished moving to a different day, or just getting completely taken off. And that helps keep me sane, maybe makes it easier for other people to work with me. Patti Dobrowolski 26:04 I was gonna say too, the thing that I know about you that you didn't mention is that you make sure to take time off, like you go away. I do you and that you really rest and recuperate with your family. Yes. Yeah. And that's important. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 26:19 Yes, that can look like hiking and trail biking, and. Patti Dobrowolski 26:23 Whatever your husband has his new task, that new thing he's into? Yes, yes. Kind of the idea of own kind of it. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 26:30 Yes, yes, Patti. And I have partners in life, who are obviously taking us on new and different adventures all the time. And part of that, too, is just like, just say, yes, just learn something new. Patti Dobrowolski 26:41 My thing is because I used to always say No, first, I would say no, no, I don't want to do that. No. And then I had to train myself. You're like a puppy and you're a puppy in the car, and you're going to do this, it's going to happen, you can make it happen, you can go and then I would always have a fantastic time because it would take me out of my comfort zone. Yeah. Well, I love spending this time with you now tell me and tell our listeners to what tips do you have for them about how they can pivot? Or what to do when they're up against a challenge to get through it and to step into more of themselves or their authentic self or their future? What would you share? Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 27:19 Well, I would say make plans. Just be willing for those plans to actually change, you know, so but I think you should make plans and work hard and be honest, we say here at the DeBruce Foundation, hashtag truth works. So make plans, work hard, be honest, leave the results to the Lord. That's what I tend to do. But that make plans and work hard. And be honest, staying in that cycle and being willing for those plans to continue to change. So my plans today could possibly be different plans tomorrow. And I think that you also have to be brave, right? Be brave, believe in yourself, find people who believe in you. I bet that I really cannot take credit for where I am today, I really have to give that credit back to the people who have believed in me. And I will also you know, and if you have people who don't believe in you, if you are with people who are you know, sometimes people talk about a toxic culture or place that I like, Get out. Get out. There are people out there who love you and who want to be supportive of you, and will help you and help you. Yeah, and I think that's the other thing is, don't be afraid to pick up the phone and ask somebody for help. I mean, so many people, other people who you've interviewed Patti have talked about, we think that people are not accessible. And the reality is, many, many people are much more accessible than you think they are. But you do have to take the initiative. And so be confident and do that. Patti Dobrowolski 28:46 Yes, I love that. And I think I tell people that all the time, because I remember reading a really fantastic book. And I thought I wonder if that woman has an AOL account. And I just wrote her an email. And sure enough, she wrote me right back. And that showed me that I could do that with anyone. You know, somebody called me yesterday from Kuwait, in a car. It was the middle of the night, he was driving to his job. And he wanted to know, how could he showed people how to draw their future. And I was like, oh, man, like, here's the code for my class, I want you to come and do that. And then, like, let me help you to do that. Because I think this is the thing. If you're brave enough to reach out to somebody, they will respond, they will respond. And that's how we met. And I just love that, that somebody connected us. And I drew for DeBruce Foundation, and then the rest is history. I mean, I can't think of a better collaboration than the one that I have with you and the DeBruce Foundation and everybody that works here. I love them so. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 29:47 Well. For you to and we're so grateful for the audience. He's here with us. Yeah, yes. Thank you so much, because you're investing in yourself with fantastic Exactly. Patti Dobrowolski 29:57 So thank you again for all your time. And you know, if you liked this, of course, share it with your friends because that's the way we get the word out about what's happening in Kansas City because things are going down there. They're coming up from the base, and we're going to change right here in this city. So thank you so much, Leigh Anne. You're awesome and amazing. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight 30:18 Thank you, Patti.

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

I couldn't wait to go to camp—two whole weeks without parents or teachers telling me what to do. When I arrived, it did not disappoint. I met my bunkmates and our counselor, and we headed down to the lake. Tanner, who's from North Carolina, showed me how to do a flip off the dock. Later that night, marshmallow and chocolate melted in my mouth as we made s'mores around a fire. I taught Angus, one of my bunkmates all the way from Australia, how to roast a marshmallow to a perfect golden brown. Then, a few nights in, it hit me. I missed my dog. I missed my mom's blueberry pancakes. I missed my dad's corny jokes. I missed playing video games with my little brother. I was lying in my bunk during lights out, and in the darkness I felt painfully alone. I wanted to go home. My heart hurt, and I felt empty. Had I made a mistake coming to camp? I felt overwhelmed and wondered if I'd taken on a task I was not prepared for. I whispered a prayer to God. At breakfast the next morning, I told Tanner that I missed my dog. Suddenly, everyone at the table started talking about their pets. We shared their names, funny stories, and inevitably learned about each other's families too. And I didn't feel alone anymore. My bunkmates have since become some of my best friends. God heard my prayer that night, and He gave me comfort through friends. No matter where I go, I know God will be with me. • Kelly Bakshi • Throughout our lives we continue to face difficult things, like family issues, moving, starting a new school or job, etc. When we feel overwhelmed and alone, it can help to remember how God has been there for us in the past. Can you remember a time God helped you? • As Christians, we can know Jesus is always with us. He cares about all our needs, including relational needs, and He invites us to ask Him for help. How do you need God's help today? ...if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. Psalm 139:8 (NIV)

This event is to raise awareness and educate others on the Stillbirth topic. This event will be a survivors resource training! Hosted by Regeline Sabbat - Motivational Keynote Speaker, 5x Bestselling Author, Life Coach, First generation Haitian American, the host of Walk With Me Podcast on JRQTV, Financial Expert, and CEO and Founder of Life Service Center of America, LLC. Endorsed by Les Brown.   Speakers: (Master of Ceremonies) Lakisha James - Corporate event planner, Set Designer, Mentor, Author, and Atlanta Chapter Leader for World Women Conference & Awards Stacey Matarazzo Dinburg- Stacey is the vice president and co-founder of The 2 Degrees Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to impacting stillbirth outcomes in the state of NJ. As a mother of a stillborn daughter Stacey has felt the need to turn her tragedy into a purpose. Stacey and her husband Sean's first born daughter, Rhyan Ava was born sleeping on January 30, 2014 at 37 weeks gestational age. She has since become an advocate for maternal health including infertility, maternal mental health, pregnancy and infant loss, pregnancy after loss, and parenting after loss. Over the past 6 years, Stacey has been an invited speaker at RMA of NJ's series “The Doctor is in”, “The Stillbirth Management Conference” through the Partnership of Maternal & Child Health of Northern New Jersey, and has testified for the appropriate implementation of The Autumn Joy Stillbirth Research & Dignity Act in Trenton. Her stillbirth story has been featured in NY FOX 5's Dr. Manny Alvarez's “Ask Dr. Manny” news blog and in Hackensack Merdian Health Views magazine. Stacey is a certified special educator and studied behavioral psychology at Caldwell University. She is currently studying to become a certified bereavement and birthing doula. She also works part time as an instructional facilitator and a teacher trainer at a specialized school for students with special needs. Most importantly, Stacey is the proud mother of 2 beautiful little girls, her rainbows. She currently resides in New Jersey with her family.   Ana Vick- Ana Vick is the Co-Director of Awareness for PUSH for Empowered Pregnancy and a mother of three (always missing one) whose traumatic experience with two early miscarriages and her middle son, Owen's, unexpected stillbirth in 2015, have called her to join the fight to end preventable stillbirths.  Putting her UCLA Psychology B.A. and television production background into use, Ana leads discussion and support rooms weekly on Clubhouse in the Empowered Pregnancy Club that she founded to connect with loss families, expectant parents and medical providers. She is a vocal part of the community of bereaved parents on social media (her handle on all platforms is StillMySon) helping to break the stigma and silence shrouding stillbirth. She interviews other bereaved parents regularly about their experience because she believes that by amplifying the stillbirth crisis we can create an urgent outcry for improved standards of care for everyone.  Ana promotes change through supporting legislative efforts including advocating for stillbirth tax credits around the country and bills targeting stillbirth prevention and bereavement care. She is relentless in her determination to end stillbirth and improve maternity care because of the rampant number of families, like her own, that continue to be wrecked by this failure of our medical system. Our country has a long way to go in developing protocols to prevent stillbirths, so it's critical that we are not silent on this issue. As a bilingual Latina, Ana's interest in improving the higher rate of stillbirth in the BIPOC community is deeply personal and an area of change she will be dedicating great attention to this year.  Ana has shared her personal story in national and local press including Today Parents and CBS 17 News, however, her main focus is on collaboration with other nonprofits, pregnancy advice platforms (such as Mommy Labor Nurse and Juna) and influencers to spread PUSH for Empowered Pregnancy's prevention tips to expectant parents. By empowering families with the knowledge that stillbirth still happens (even in healthy pregnancies like hers was) and explaining what they can do to minimize their risks, she believes we can save many babies in memory of her son, Owen, and all babies gone too soon.  The Vick's recently relocated cross country from California to North Carolina, where her husband is from, with their two living children and two mini aussie pups; They fill each other's days with joy and gratitude as they navigate life after loss together. Randy is a Canadian dad of 2 girls (one in heaven). He lost his second born daughter to stillbirth in June 2020 and since then has realized the gap in support for grieving dads.  He is eager to spread the message of what it's like as a grieving dad and how we can support them when they need it most Kim is a mom of 2 girls (one in heaven). Her oldest is 4 years old and River Joy would have been 18 months old as she was born still at 34 weeks pregnant in June of 2020.  Kim is married her to husband Randy of almost 7 years where together with their daughter they live in Ontario Canada. Kim is passionate about stillbirth advocacy and supporting others through their grief with her social media platform (Instagram). Her goal is to help other mamas know they aren't alone in their grief, and also help to prevent stillbirth from happening by educating others.  Karina Portes, mommy to son Trevor Rafael whom was stillborn. As a grieving mom finding out the cause of death of my son was devastated. After sending his placenta pathology to and Dr. Harvey Kliman from Yale university who determined it was from a Placenta abruption due to a 16% percentile small Placenta.

15 years after the Supreme Court ruled that school segregation was unconstitutional in Brown v. Board of Education, many schools across the South were still segregated. Some school districts actively blocked desegregation. North Carolina passed legislation authorizing tuition grants to white private schools, sometimes called "segregation academies." Members of the KKK held rallies in North Carolina, describing desegregation as "anti-Christian" and "communistic." When the Federal government pressured school boards to comply or lose their funding, many responded by shuttering Black schools and assigning Black students to formerly all-white schools. It was called "one-way desegregation." In a very rural part of North Carolina, Black students and their families decided to fight back. We speak with Dr. Dudley E.

Yeah, no wonder we're all confused. Until now. Today, I'm here with Sam Miller to clear up the confusion on the realities of Calories in/Calories out, factors that effect Calories out that you may not be seeing, how to assess your SHREDS biofeedback for better progress, and how to use nutritional periodization to help you reach your fitness and fat loss goals for good.

140: A Nonprofit Leader's Guide to Boosting Board Engagement (Lea Williams)  SUMMARYThe best nonprofit leaders create and maintain strategic partnerships between themselves, their staff, and their board. If you are looking to take your board to the next level, check out episode #140 of the Path Podcast where Dr. Lea Williams and I discuss five tactics for creating and sustaining a dynamic board of directors. Building off our work together with multiple boards, our conversations with our Mastermind participants, and Lea's background as a meetings scientist, we reflect on characteristics of successful boards and how nonprofit leaders can cultivate a higher level of engagement with these important stakeholders. We discuss the importance of creating confident ambassadors, clarifying board member responsibilities through onboarding, building comfort around the organization's financial model, building a pipeline of board leaders through year-round recruiting, and hitting “reset” on your board meetings. Listen for these strategies and other tactical recommendations to help with your nonprofit board development efforts. ABOUT LEALea is an Organizational Scientist who joined the PMA team in June of 2020. Prior to joining the firm, she dedicated her time to two main areas: earning her Ph.D. in Organizational Science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and serving 15+ nonprofits through pro-bono consulting engagements through the Volunteer Program Assessment. In addition to her nonprofit work, while obtaining her Doctorate, Lea also worked in several Talent Management/Organizational Development roles at large organizations in Charlotte, such as Ingersoll Rand, Duke Energy, TIAA, and Jacobsen. Given her strong research background, she is skilled at gathering input and synthesizing it to help nonprofit leaders develop innovative solutions. Her specialties include meeting effectiveness (the subject of her dissertation), leadership, board, and staff training and development, data analysis, strategic planning, survey design, stakeholder research, and volunteer retention/engagement. She also received her Master's in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and her bachelor's degree in Psychology from Davidson College. EPISODE TOPICS & RESOURCESLea's previous episode (#59: 5 Keys to Leading Dynamic Virtual Meetings) Priya Parker's book The Art of GatheringCal Newport's book A World Without Email Lea's work at PMA through consulting and meeting facilitation

This week, in Mount Airy, North Carolina, the town that "Mayberry" of The Andy Griffith Show is based on isn't so idyllic, considering a body is found, posed, and with the hands chopped off. The investigation couldn't have been more incompetent, if it was conducted by the Sheriff of a sitcom, instead of the actual real police that ended up with it. Wild truths come out about the killer, including even more murder, and a prison diary that goes public, and makes the whole system angry. Will he escape the electric chair? Along the way, we find out that some people REALLY love The Andy Griffith Show, that chopping hands off doesn't keep anyone from identifying a body, and that killing more people doesn't make killing the first person okay to do!! Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman New episodes every Thursday! Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports! Follow us on...twitter.com/@murdersmallfacebook.com/smalltownpodinstagram.com/smalltownmurder Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!
