Our Field Trip to Almeda Elementary School
We like to break the monotony of the daily grind to give back to our community here in Houston. Almeda Elementary School staff was happy to oblige by lettingus showcase a car show. The staff was eager for a break from the classroom as the school year comes to an end, and the student enjoyed the opportunity to get behond the wheels of some nice cars.
We don't always get an opportunity to extol just how much we value being of service to our community. In sharing that message to the students, we also emphasized the importance of putting in hard work everyday by setting goals in hopes of achieving their dreams; and also being a pillar in the community by lifting up others.
At the end of the day, I believe the kids enjoyed our uplifting message. But as it was ever apparent that the students were more interested in the display behind us, afterward we showed off a few of our select custom cars, including a Slingshot that really drew a few "oohs" and "ahhhs." We also got a chance to speak individually to many of the students to learn more about their aspirations.
Being blessed to have a wonderful team by my side for over 15 years, it's opportunities like this that drive me to do what I do everyday.... serve... and win trophies.
Oh, and check this out... I was even asked to sign an autograph today by one of the students. Now talk about inspiring.... today was a good day.
