Chamber and Rotary Club present 'Choices' program at Crocker

Russ Dixon of Mid Missouri Credit Union and Maria Vigil of Mid Missouri Women Veterans Post 1783 presented Choices to Crocker students including Morgan Wall and Melissa Chapman.
CROCKER, Mo. (Oct. 28, 2015) — Volunteers from the Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Pulaski County presented the Choices program at the Crocker R-II School District on Oct. 26 and 27 to Crocker eighth graders over the course of two hours. According to event organizers, the main goal of the Choices program is connecting with the students and showing them there are many things to consider when planning their futures.

A core principle discussed during the presentation is self-discipline: the importance of understanding what self-discipline means and applying it to your life. When asked after the seminar what self-discipline means, many students commented that it means managing themselves and in many cases that means doing things you need to do regardless of whether you want to or not.

The program is a highly participatory classroom seminar. The Crocker school presentation was sponsored by Columbia College, Fort Wood Thrift Shop and Rotary Club of Pulaski County.

The CHOICES program uses interactive exercises to help students learn the impact of their choices and how to take control of their lives through wise decision-making in different areas of life such as time and money management as well as education.
