“What’s In Your Backpack” – Craig Farnum, College Counselor
Craig will examine the attitudes, values, and beliefs that we carry around with us in our invisible backpacks.  He will look at how the “stuff” in our backpacks influences how we evaluate people and situations. What happens when our behaviors align with our attitudes, values and beliefs? What happens when they do not align?

To learn more, call 963-2172. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no charge and no need to R.S.V.P.
