The MORE Program presents a video in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.
On Wednesdays, the MORE Program students work on their video and photography skills. Some students have shown natural talent in the director position, some as a manager organizing behind the scenes. There are students who love to ask interview questions and prompt thoughts, and others who love to be on camera.
This week our project was to organize and present a video on Martin Luther King, Jr. Grab a cup of tea, sit back, and enjoy this 6 minute presentation on MLK. The students organized, directed, and filmed it all!
Some famous MLK quotes the students included:
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
The MORE Program provides afternoon care to middle school students in Warren County. We provide healthy snacks, reinforce skills required for academic success, and provide hands-on enrichment activities that teach important lessons about future employment, health, and wellness. We provide all of this at no cost to parents, thanks to state and federal grants, the Warren Coalition, and Warren County Public Schools.

Pet of the Month: Luke’s Furry Friends – Benjamin!
Meet Benjamin, a 2ish year old terrier/corgi mix who has been chosen for our January Warren County sponsored Pet of the Month. Benjamin is good with cats (as seen in the video!) and appears to enjoy children. He is a sweet dog that will roll right over on his back for tummy rubs the minute you reach to love on him.
Benjamin will be (if not already is) current on all of his shots and will need to be neutered. Both neuter and adoption fees are sponsored this month for our sweet friend. Stop out and take some time to visit with this cute boy. Benjamin just might be you next family member!

Local real estate agent earns e-PRO® Certification
Jennifer Avery of NextHome Realty Select successfully completed the e-PRO® Certification Program and was awarded the e-PRO® Certification, the official technology certification program offered by the National Association of Realtors® in early February 2015.
Jennifer joined more than 30,000 real estate professionals who have earned NAR’s e-PRO® certification and dedicated their time and effort towards learning how to use the latest social media technologies to create an online presence and reach today’s hyper-connected consumers.
Working together with the Social Media Marketing Institute, NAR redesigned the e-PRO® curriculum to better meet the challenges of today’s real estate market. The new e-PRO® program expands an agent’s real estate technology skills and helps them connect with consumers online via social media, email marketing, and web site promotion.
“Over nine out of 10 recent buyers began their real estate search online,” said NAR President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs, Florida. “With an increasing number of consumers turning to social media and online technology throughout their home search, it is essential for today’s agents to have the knowledge and training necessary to connect with these consumers online.”
Social media is evolving every day so it is vital that Realtors embrace the new technology and online resources that have become an integral part to the home buying and selling process. Agents who earn e-PRO® are dedicated to making the most of today’s social media and technology to help consumers with their real estate needs, whatever they may be.
“This online technology has proven to be an amazing tool and differentiator for me in the real estate industry. It has really helped set my marketing apart from the rest and bring added value to my sellers and buyers,” exclaims Jennifer.
