The #SpanningtheNeed podcast is launching “Inspirational Person of the Week’”(POTW) to motivate our community to live a quality life. We feel that these recipients will “Inspire the Uninspired” in our community by way of volunteer work, business, or random acts of kindness in the workplace, at home, on the job and the athletic field, or in our neighboring communities. With the POTW, we hope to help create more awareness surrounding the kind acts from others that may go unrecognized. As well, we hope it teaches important social and emotional lessons while spotlighting those extraordinary individuals. We will feature individuals and/or groups who are willing to go out of their way to help others, as well as student-athletes who display distinction, dedication, and perseverance in the classroom. Those featured must excel in their community and show that they have gone above and beyond the standard to give back to the community. Among other criteria, the student-athletes will be chosen based on their performance in the classroom and their sport, as well as their involvement in the community. We hope these stories will inspire and motivate others with the hope of giving back.
The #SpanningtheNeed podcast will present a “Q&A” with the many gifted individuals/groups or students in our area. For us, nothing is more inspiring than learning from real people who manifest their dreams and encourage others who turn obstacles into opportunities.
