Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts is proud to have supported Career Day this past Tuesday, October 31st at West Buncombe Elementary School. The purpose of the event was to open the eyes of young students to their possible professional opportunities. Representing Asheville Sun Soo, both Master Michael Dickinson and Ms. Amy Dexter spent the morning helping several classes of young students see bright futures for themselves. During the short 20 minutes they had with each class, Master Dickinson and Ms. Dexter emphasized the importance of three main ideas: 1) – doing well in school and getting a good education – as a foundation for a great professional life; 2) – the importance of goal setting and achievement – as a habit for success; and 3) – the contrast between “excellence” and “mediocrity” as a critical distinction among high-achievers in the professional world. In addition to these primary points, Master Dickinson and Ms. Dexter emphasized the importance and critical roles that teamwork, courtesy and leadership skills play in the work place. They shared with their students the joys of being in a profession that provides so many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of people and the joys of being generous in general. And while 20 minutes is not much time to cover all of that, they even shared a few moves, for an extra dose of fun!! Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts would like to give a giant shout-out to the faculty and staff of West Buncombe Elementary for all that they do every day to make West Buncombe Elementary and excellent school. And we’d also like to extend a special thanks for letting us be an enthusiastic contribution to this year’s Career Day!
