On August 23, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King gave his iconic "I Have A Dream" speech to a crowd of 250,000 from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. 50 years later, the impact and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King is unwavering. So, to honor this legacy, LeadershipWorks is hosting an essay writing contest for Memphis-area high school students.
We had the pleasure this morning of meeting and measuring some of the men we will be suiting on November 11. These men are all participants in the Setting the Standard program, led by Alton Cryer and Jeremy Calhoun.

The decades-long national push for high school graduates to get bachelor’s degrees left vocational programs with an image problem, and the nation’s factories with far fewer skilled workers than needed.
A national retailer is hiring 400,000 seasonal workers, including 750 in Tennessee.
To prepare for the holiday shopping rush, JCPenney plans to hire 750 seasonal associates throughout Tennessee on its first-ever National Hiring Day Tuesday, Oct. 17, from 2-8 p.m.
Management will hold in-person interviews and be hiring people on-the-spot for customer service and support positions, including cashier, replenishment specialist, beauty consultants and more. All skills levels are welcome.
Individuals are encouraged to apply online at jcpcareers.com or in-store at one of the applicant kiosks prior to attending the event.
The company offers seasonal associates a full associate discount up to 25 percent, as well as flexible holiday scheduling.
JcPenney has two Memphis locations: at Wolfchase Galleria, 2756 N. Germantown Parkway, and at Centennial Commons, 7700 Polo Grounds Boulevard.

Repeated complaining rewires your brain to make future complaining more likely. Over time, you find it’s easier to be negative than to be positive, regardless of what’s happening around you. Complaining becomes your default behavior, which changes how people perceive you.
