IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED …
Some people just quit if at first they don't succeed! But no! There is much wisdom in the adage, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
Success takes handwork and perseverance. The ongoing global battle with the coronavirus pandemic has not helped. Learning has become more challenging in a world burdened with emotional and health challenges.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going!
Our FutureNow! students are resolute. We will not quit! We will ….
… TRY, AND TRY AGAIN!
