A Process for Progress– December 5, 2012

My thoughts this week are on two great human beings who can serve as examples to us: Civil Rights Leader Dr. Martin Luther King and recently retired Beechwood teacher Ms. Kelly Buehner. On the surface these two may appear to have little in common. Dr. King was known for his inspirational speeches given to large audiences while Ms. Buehner is soft-spoken and uncomfortable in the spotlight. Dr. King was an internationally recognized historical figure while Ms. Buehner was known to a privileged few and content to work behind the scenes here at Beechwood. Upon further examination, however, we can see that Ms. Buehner and Dr. King share two of the most admirable characteristics a person can possess.
