  • Here is today’s Black History Fact….

Today February 8th, marks the birthday of Ada Louis Sipuel who in 1948, won a racial discrimination case against the University of Oklahoma. Not only did this ruling allow her to become the first black woman to attend an all-white law school, but it laid the early groundwork for future cases.

  • We are celebrating the third day of “National School Counseling Week” and today we are focusing on staying determined and showing perseverance to reach our goals, no matter how hard they seem.

Although many of us know Abraham Lincoln as a past President of the United States, we do not often know that he had to overcome great challenges and failures before becoming president. Listen to some of Lincoln’s experiences: In 1831, he lost his job. In 1832, he was defeated in his run for the Illinois State Legislature. In 1833, he failed in business. In 1834, he was elected to the Illinois State Legislature, but in 1838, he lost his bid to become the Illinois House Speaker.

In 1843, he lost his run for nomination for U.S. Congress. In 1846, he was elected to Congress but in 1848 lost re-nomination. In 1849, he was rejected for a land officer position and in 1854, he lost when he ran for the U.S. Senate. In 1856, he lost his run for nomination for vice president and in 1858, he lost his run for U.S. Senate.

Finally, in 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected president.  Even though he experienced a great deal of failure, Lincoln stayed determined and kept pushing on despite his circumstances. He persevered and found ways to be successful and used his failures to prepare him for future possibilities. We all experience failure and setbacks at some point. The key is to not give up. Be determined. Learn from you disappointments. Celebrate your achievements. Make this day a great one.
