ASTRONOMY PICTURE OF THE DAY

Deep Field: Nebulae of Sagittarius

Out2News.com

Image Credit & Copyright: Emilio Rivero Padilla

Explanation: These three bright nebulae are often featured on telescopic tours of the constellation Sagittarius and the crowded starfields of the central Milky Way. In fact, 18th century cosmic tourist Charles Messier cataloged two of them; M8, the large nebula just left of center, and colorful M20 on the top left. The third emission region includes NGC 6559 and can be found to the right of M8. All three are stellar nurseries about five thousand light-years or so distant. Over a hundred light-years across, the expansive M8 is also known as the Lagoon Nebula. M20’s popular moniker is the Trifid. Glowing hydrogen gas creates the dominant red color of the emission nebulae. In striking contrast, blue hues in the Trifid are due to dust reflected starlight. Recently formed bright blue stars are visible nearby. The colorful composite skyscape was recorded in 2018 in Teide National Park in the Canary Islands, Spain.

South Fork Drama Students Raise Funds & Awareness for Mental Health

Out2News.com
Photo: South Fork High School Counselor Abbi MacFarlane and student playwrights Madeline Murray, Grace Lloyd and Abby Gordon

Stuart, Fl- May 20, 2019- Three young playwrights at South Fork High School are changing the way teens talk to each other about mental health and opening a dialogue with parents and teachers, as well. Abby Gordon, Grace Lloyd and Madeline Murray are the young writers behind Chlorine and Blue Like Jazz, two plays that were produced at South Fork in April, with proceeds benefitting nonprofit mental health agency Tykes & Teens.

With the assistance and encouragement of school-based counselor Abbi MacFarlane and Drama teacher Sheri Bryan, the students explored topics including dating violence, sexual assault, substance abuse and difficult child/parent relationships. The response to the shows was as dramatic as the material itself. Reactions were mixed, and that, say the playwrights, is a good thing. “People go to shows so they can identify with others and feel less alone”, said Lloyd.

“It was triggering for some kids”, said Murray. “Everyone could relate to something, and we even had to talk about it with the actors because of what it brought up for some of them.”

Gordon, whose play Chlorine explored 3 different types of toxic relationships in response to a sexual assault, said her goal was to make it relatable for everyone on some level. “Even if it’s just a bad experience you’ve had with friends, or a difficult relationship with your mom, you can see yourself in many of the roles.”

Counselor Abby MacFarlane echoed the importance of allowing the students to express themselves. “The next day I had students talking about some of the things portrayed in the shows. Some said they could relate, some said it didn’t reflect their experience, and some said it was hard to watch. It also opened up conversations among teachers. Sometimes we forget that they are human beings with these experiences too.” MacFarlane went on to say “This stuff needs to get addressed in direct and honest ways. Life isn’t always pretty, and theater gives these kids a safe outlet.”

The entire Drama Club participated in producing the shows, and students featured information about Tykes & Teens in the playbill. More than $350.00 was raised for the non-profit that has provided mental health services to more than 35,000 local children and teens.

SOUTH FORK HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR LEAVES TREMENDOUS LEGACY, PREPARES TO CHANGE THE WORLD

Out2News.com

Over the last four years, South Fork High School senior Nicole Daly has worked to influence gun reform and school violence policies, address the state’s opioid crisis, champion causes related to mental wellness and LGBTQ+ rights, and stop many of her peers from abusing harmful substances and vape products. She’s also maintained a 6.33 weighted/ 4.0 unweighted GPA and will graduate at the top of her class later this month.

STUART, FL – International Baccalaureate Diploma Candidate. Student Body President. Youth In Government State Supporting Officer. Relay for Life Team Secretary. Kovner Foundation Opportunity Scholar. Soroptimist International Women of Distinction Rising Star. National Honor Society Member. Spanish National Honor Society Member.

For those wondering, this isn’t a list of titles or accomplishments a student might try to achieve while in high school. It’s the actual (partial) resume of Nicole Daly, a member of South Fork High School’s Class of 2019 who has accomplished a great deal as a student, volunteer and community activist in the last four years. Equally passionate about academics, civic involvement and health issues that impact teens, Nicole has served as a member of the Martin County Drug and Alcohol Abuse Awareness Committee (DAAC) and as the Co-Founder of the Martin County Chapter of Friday Night Done Right, an evidence-based initiative designed to prevent substance abuse by providing teens with positive, alternative events.

“Through my membership in the DAAC and my first-hand experience as a high school student, I became hyper-aware of the devastating trend of substance abuse in teenagers,” Nicole shares. “We needed a change; too many of my peers abuse alcohol, vapes, and marijuana. I formed a local chapter of Friday Night Done Right [and] recruited my hardest working peers to be part of the leadership team. We acquired sponsors and advertised. Our first event, Friday Night Done Right’s Summer Kickoff, was a tremendous success. Around 100 high school students came from across Martin County to enjoy substance-free fun – free food, an escape room, a DJ, blow-up attractions, and a plethora of light-up goods.”

Additional events followed, including popular “pop-up” events for local teens who pledged to remain substance free.

“Last month, we were able to distribute 20 free tickets for students to see a movie, [and we’re] working to schedule additional pop-up events, create local legislation to combat the trend of teen vaping and host a youth dialogue day wherein a diverse group of teens can voice their opinions in an open forum with school administrators and local leaders,” she explains.

Nicole’s dedication to the safety and mental wellness of her peers intensified as she joined the nation in mourning the tragedy that occurred in Parkland, Florida, in 2018.

“After the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, I wrote an opinion editorial for my school’s newspaper about gun control as a strategy to combat gun violence. My article led to an invitation to speak at the Martin County March for Our Lives Rally. After a few other students and I voiced our concerns, the Martin County School Board and Sheriff’s Office decided not to pursue the Guardian Program in our school district.”

Understanding the urgency of the situation and wanting to make sure that teens’ voices were heard, Nicole began organizing voter registration drives at South Fork. She secured a spot as a regular panelist on WSTU/1450 AM’s “Treasure Coast Forum” political talk show, and was named the Martin County School Board’s 2018-2019 Student Representative, where she was tasked with presenting monthly reports to the Board on current events and initiatives taking place in District high schools.

As a State Supporting Officer in the YMCA’s Youth in Government (YIG) program, Nicole has published articles addressing some of Florida’s top issues and areas of concern. In her role as the YIG Surgeon General, she drafted a proposal to combat the state’s opioid epidemic by implementing a screening process and medication-assisted treatment plan for opioid-dependent inmates in jails and prisons. She is also working to develop legislation that targets other health-related priorities, such as mental wellness and LGBTQ+ welfare. Excited to build upon what she has learned and accomplished thus far, Nicole is looking forward to expanding her knowledge and civic involvement as a college student in the fall.

“I am looking forward to attending Swarthmore College where I can further my community involvement and passion for civic engagement through a major in political science or sociology/anthropology,” she shares.

No matter what major or career field she decides to pursue, one thing is certain – Nicole will use her passion, voice and influence to change the world. Her time as a standout scholar in the Martin County School District has proven she’s well-versed in the art of making an impact.

Students Immerse Themselves in the Arts on the Treasure Coast
During Martin Youth LEADERship’s Arts and Culture Day

Out2News.com

Stuart-On April 16, 34 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in ARTS AND CULTURE DAY, their final monthly session before Graduation,

The Arts & Culture Day Program Chairman, Jay Spicer (Fair Manager, Martin County Fair Association) welcomed students at Art n Around in Jensen Beach. Owner Susi Parriott presented a hands-on painting activity. As students created their artwork, Susi gave advice on life’s leadership skills as freely as she gave tips on how to perfect their art, drawing upon her decades of art teaching experience on the Treasure Coast.

Students were taken to the Florida Oceanographic Center, where Brittany Biber, Director of Animal Care and Life Support, gave an overview of the Center, including hands-on interaction with the marine life housed there. Students learned about volunteer and internship opportunities, as well as potential career paths in the animal sciences.

Gilbert’s Bar & House of Refuge Museum was next on the itinerary. Linda Geary, Historic Site Manager, led students on a tour of the museum, where students learned a little about life along the Treasure Coast more than a century ago. Students toured the sites with staff, who were more than happy to answer all questions about our community’s history.

Students concluded their day at The Barn Theatre, where President Francine Beckstead and Technical Director Bryan Childe of The Barn Theatre spoke about the history of the Theatre, and how to get involved with the Barn. Students also had a brief backstage tour and worked on their leadership skills through improvisational work. They learned that being onstage is not quite as easy as it looks, and learned how to parlay acting skills into real life experiences as adults.
The Martin Youth LEADERship Program is designed for high school sophomores and juniors in Martin County, and is in its 22nd year. Founded and underwritten by LEADERship Martin County Alumni, MYL is an opportunity for high school students to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply through their guidance offices, and a limited number are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on leadership enhancing activities.
For more information about MYL and how you too, might become a sponsor, donor, event coordinator, advisory board member or obtain a student application for 2019-20, please see the group web site at: www.leadershipmcalumni.com/youth-leadership, or contact Jeanne Dunn, Program Coordinator, at MartinYouthLeadership@gmail.com or at (772) 486-4695.

Students Immerse Themselves in the Arts on the Treasure Coast
During Martin Youth LEADERship’s Arts and Culture Day

Out2News.com

Stuart-On April 16, 34 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in ARTS AND CULTURE DAY, their final monthly session before Graduation,

The Arts & Culture Day Program Chairman, Jay Spicer (Fair Manager, Martin County Fair Association) welcomed students at Art n Around in Jensen Beach. Owner Susi Parriott presented a hands-on painting activity. As students created their artwork, Susi gave advice on life’s leadership skills as freely as she gave tips on how to perfect their art, drawing upon her decades of art teaching experience on the Treasure Coast.

Students were taken to the Florida Oceanographic Center, where Brittany Biber, Director of Animal Care and Life Support, gave an overview of the Center, including hands-on interaction with the marine life housed there. Students learned about volunteer and internship opportunities, as well as potential career paths in the animal sciences.

Gilbert’s Bar & House of Refuge Museum was next on the itinerary. Linda Geary, Historic Site Manager, led students on a tour of the museum, where students learned a little about life along the Treasure Coast more than a century ago. Students toured the sites with staff, who were more than happy to answer all questions about our community’s history.

Students concluded their day at The Barn Theatre, where President Francine Beckstead and Technical Director Bryan Childe of The Barn Theatre spoke about the history of the Theatre, and how to get involved with the Barn. Students also had a brief backstage tour and worked on their leadership skills through improvisational work. They learned that being onstage is not quite as easy as it looks, and learned how to parlay acting skills into real life experiences as adults.
The Martin Youth LEADERship Program is designed for high school sophomores and juniors in Martin County, and is in its 22nd year. Founded and underwritten by LEADERship Martin County Alumni, MYL is an opportunity for high school students to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply through their guidance offices, and a limited number are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on leadership enhancing activities.

Students Immerse Themselves in the Arts on the Treasure Coast
During Martin Youth LEADERship’s Arts and Culture Day

Out2News.com

Stuart-On April 16, 34 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in ARTS AND CULTURE DAY, their final monthly session before Graduation,

The Arts & Culture Day Program Chairman, Jay Spicer (Fair Manager, Martin County Fair Association) welcomed students at Art n Around in Jensen Beach. Owner Susi Parriott presented a hands-on painting activity. As students created their artwork, Susi gave advice on life’s leadership skills as freely as she gave tips on how to perfect their art, drawing upon her decades of art teaching experience on the Treasure Coast.

Students were taken to the Florida Oceanographic Center, where Brittany Biber, Director of Animal Care and Life Support, gave an overview of the Center, including hands-on interaction with the marine life housed there. Students learned about volunteer and internship opportunities, as well as potential career paths in the animal sciences.

Gilbert’s Bar & House of Refuge Museum was next on the itinerary. Linda Geary, Historic Site Manager, led students on a tour of the museum, where students learned a little about life along the Treasure Coast more than a century ago. Students toured the sites with staff, who were more than happy to answer all questions about our community’s history.

Students concluded their day at The Barn Theatre, where President Francine Beckstead and Technical Director Bryan Childe of The Barn Theatre spoke about the history of the Theatre, and how to get involved with the Barn. Students also had a brief backstage tour and worked on their leadership skills through improvisational work. They learned that being onstage is not quite as easy as it looks, and learned how to parlay acting skills into real life experiences as adults.
The Martin Youth LEADERship Program is designed for high school sophomores and juniors in Martin County, and is in its 22nd year. Founded and underwritten by LEADERship Martin County Alumni, MYL is an opportunity for high school students to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply through their guidance offices, and a limited number are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on leadership enhancing activities.

Front row: Student winners Milena Santos, Sydni Parenteau, Sophia Maestre, Elizabeth Stockero, Jude King

Stuart, Fl- April 5, 2019- One of the most effective ways to prevent underage drinking is to encourage youth to research the dangerous effects of alcohol use on the teen brain, and to involve them in educating their peers. As a supplement to the Alcohol Literacy Challenge curriculum implemented by Tykes & Teens in Martin County schools, 6th grade students work in groups to create posters to help educate and empower their peers to make healthy choices and avoid tragedies related to underage drinking. Winning posters from each school are then displayed at the Martin County Fair with the public voting for their favorite. The poster contest is hosted by Tykes and Teens Prevention Services in partnership the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, the Children’s Services Council of Martin County, and Martin County Schools. The winning poster for 2019 was created by Anderson Middle School students Milena Santos, Sydni Parenteau, Sophia Maestre, Elizabeth Stockero and Jude King. The students received prizes courtesy of the poster contest sponsors.

Dr. Denisha Bonds, Career Coordinator at Clark Advanced Learning Center, organized a Career Fair of more than two dozen employers, and students had the opportunity to search for summer employment, internships and volunteer opportunities in our community. Other sessions included a social media presentation from Jeremy Harris, CEO of Growth Squad, who demonstrated that the internet can be both a powerful tool for job searches and making connections, as well as a potential liability able to damage an applicant’s career potential if the wrong information is posted on their social media page. Roz Johnson, Human Resources Director for the City of Stuart, conducted a resume writing workshop. Students, who had prepared in advance for Career Day by submitting initial resumes to Ms. Johnson, were given a professional critique of their resumes and the opportunity to strengthen them through her guidance.

Martin Youth LEADERship: Students Eat, Exercise and Focus on Health

Out2News.com

Stuart-Students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program held their sixth monthly session of the school year: HEALTH AND WELLNESS DAY, Health and Wellness Day Program Chairperson, Dawn Cabrera (ALTOSS Coordinator at Tykes and Teens), kicked-off the program by welcoming Tykes and Teens’ Agnieszka Marshall, who provided the class with an interactive overview of mental and emotional fitness and dream interpretation.

Marybeth Pena, Nursing Program Specialist with the Martin County Health Department, then supervised the group in food knowledge, food safety, food preparation, and of course, a sampling of the students’ own creations. This hands-on cooking activity demonstrated the direct relationship between what one eats to one’s health and how much more cheaply and healthfully students can create food at home than on the go. Knowledge in hand, students made egg and salsa wraps with side vegetables and fruit infused spritzers.

Students were given the chance to work off those calories with an energizing introduction to basic fitness principles and exercises, supervised by Lewis J. Boglioli, Director of Stuart’s Financial Services Department and self-described fitness aficionado. Mr. Boglioli led the students in some basic exercise principles, allowing them to “earn” their healthy lunch of wraps, fruit salad and green salads.

Students then heard the true story of Eddy, who was raised by both his grandmother and within the foster care system. Eddy gave examples of how one bad choice in life can have such negative consequences, but also challenged and inspired the students to keep trying to move forward and strive for one’s goals, even under overwhelming circumstances, to succeed in life. Certified therapist Janice Meier brought the group full circle by educating students on the importance of resiliency and grit.

To conclude the day, certified yoga instructor Wafa Turk supervised the students with a basic yoga practice, including poses, breathing techniques and the connection between learning how to de-stress from our often hectic pace to find our inner voice. Even those students who claimed they could never “calm their mind”, experienced the benefits of shivasna following the practice.

Blues Skies Greet Students from Martin Youth LEADERship During Environmental Day

Out2News.com

Blue skies and soft breezes greeted students from Martin Youth LEADERship’s Class 22 on Tuesday, January 21, as they embarked on ENVIRONMENTAL Day. 37 students held their fifth monthly session of the school year at the St. Lucie Locks and at Jonathan Dickinson Park, learning about our local and state environment, its issues and its history.

Environmental Day Program Chair, Jennifer Ferrari, Administrator of Gifts for Florida Community Health Centers, welcomed students to the St. Lucie Locks in Stuart. Ms. Ferrari brought in Mark Perry, Executive Director of Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center, to give the students a brief introduction and history of the waterways of South Florida. Mr. Perry explained how and why the water flow and quality issues exist. He was followed by Casey McKinley, Park Ranger with the St. Lucie Locks. Mr. McKinley gave a walking tour of the lock, teaching the students about its purpose and the role the Army Corps of Engineers holds in maintaining the correct flow and dam levels. Students were then free to peruse the Education Center to view photos and interactive learning tools in order to learn more about the history of locks and dams in Florida.

MYL students were bused to Jonathan Dickinson Park in Hobe Sound, to meet with a variety of professionals from the environmental field. Debbie Fritz Quincy, Executive Director of the Hobe Sound Nature Center, brought not only several staff members, but a number of “residents” of the Center. Among them were owls, snakes, tarantulas, spiders, turtles and other creatures. Each student was given the chance to hold or get up close with the animals, all while learning about the mission of the Center. Carly Batts from the Audubon Society of Martin County, followed up with a brief lecture about her role with Audubon, as well as ways students can become involved while in high school. As a recent college graduate, Ms. Batts connected with the students, doling out key advice on tenacity when pursuing one’s career goals and other dreams. Finally, Rebecca Mott from Inwater Research Group, presented the students with an informative view the research she and Inwater do with sea turtles, particularly those near the intake canals of the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant. Inwater captures turtles to study, rehabilitate, tag and release, where they can be tracked for migration and other purposes. The students discussed how they too might become involved in this or similar careers and learned that there are a myriad of volunteer opportunities in the field of Environmental Studies.

Students were invited to participate in a “litter free” lunch contest, the goal being to create as little trash as possible when packing their lunches from home. Students displayed creativity with cloth napkins and sacks, as well as re-usable containers.

The day concluded with a walking tour of one of the trails at Jonathan Dickinson, narrated by Park Ranger Corey Kerkela. Mr. Kerkela reiterated the themes of the day: ways to become involved as a volunteer, pathways to careers in the varied fields of the environment, and ways to practice good environmental stewardship as a student and member of our community.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program for high school students is in its 22nd year. The group is continually striving to better serve the students that have made application, and been accepted in the program. The current Martin Youth LEADERship program is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply, and no more than 40 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on Covey’s Effective Habits and other leadership enhancing activities. Every effort is made to select a racially, gender diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience.

Martin Youth LEADERship: Students Learn the Consequences of Breaking the Law During Public Safety Day

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, December 11, 35 students from this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship class held their fourth monthly session of the 2018-19 school year, PUBLIC SAFETY DAY.

Students met professionals from the 19th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, including the Honorable Chief Judge Elizabeth Metzger, Public Defender John Henrik and Chief Prosecutor Nina Denton. Metzger, Henrik and Denton presented an overview of the court system in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties. Among the topics of discussion were the differences between circuit and county courts, the differences between prison and jail, the types of courts available in the 19th circuit (juvenile, dependency, mental health, Veterans, etc) and the process from arrest through incarceration. Students were also given solid advice in making smart choices during their student years, and how to prepare for the many varied careers in the legal arena.

The students’ morning in court was followed by an on-site visit to the training area for Martin County Fire and Rescue. Students trained side by side with current recruits, experiencing the rigorous physical demands these brave men and women must achieve to become firefighters in Martin County.

The final visit of the day was a behind the scenes tour from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility. Students enjoyed a K-9 presentation from Deputies Billy Baker and Ryan Perlman and Sgts. William Weiss and Travis Dykes, while learning how German Shepherds are trained to assist officers in tasks vital to law enforcement. Sheriff William Snyder spoke to the students as future leaders of their communities, encouraging them to never give up, never set goals too low, and build upon their successes one layer at a time.

After lunch, students were given a S.W.A.T. demo from Lt. Reuben Romero and his team: Peter Croft, Jake Sermons and Brian Parker. The team displayed and explained the use of various S.W.A.T. equipment, including why studying math can be an important topic should one wish to learn how to use explosives. Students were then given a tour of the Bearcat used by the MCSO.

The day concluded with a brief tour of the jail, led by Sgt. Syler and Deputy Sanchez. The students learned how inmates are brought to and processed at the MCSO jail and saw firsthand about the complete lack of rights and privacy one should expect if in jail. They also viewed the “restraining chair” and learned how ably it can restrain even the strongest adults for their own safety.

Many thanks go to program chair Robert Bruton and his committee: Trisha Kukuvka and Brad Beckett, who organized the day.

Sheriff William Snyder spoke to the students as future leaders of their communities, encouraging them to never give up, never set goals too low, and build upon their successes one layer at a time.

After lunch, students were given a S.W.A.T. demo from Lt. Reuben Romero and his team: Peter Croft, Jake Sermons and Brian Parker. The team displayed and explained the use of various S.W.A.T. equipment, including why studying math can be an important topic should one wish to learn how to use explosives. Students were then given a tour of the Bearcat used by the MCSO.

The day concluded with a brief tour of the jail, led by Sgt. Syler and Deputy Sanchez. The students learned how inmates are brought to and processed at the MCSO jail and saw firsthand about the complete lack of rights and privacy one should expect if in jail. They also viewed the “restraining chair” and learned how ably it can restrain even the strongest adults for their own safety.

Many thanks go to program chair Robert Bruton and his committee: Trisha Kukuvka and Brad Beckett, who organized the day.

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, December 11, 35 students from this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship class held their fourth monthly session of the 2018-19 school year, PUBLIC SAFETY DAY.

Students met professionals from the 19th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, including the Honorable Chief Judge Elizabeth Metzger, Public Defender John Henrik and Chief Prosecutor Nina Denton. Metzger, Henrik and Denton presented an overview of the court system in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties. Among the topics of discussion were the differences between circuit and county courts, the differences between prison and jail, the types of courts available in the 19th circuit (juvenile, dependency, mental health, Veterans, etc) and the process from arrest through incarceration. Students were also given solid advice in making smart choices during their student years, and how to prepare for the many varied careers in the legal arena.

The students’ morning in court was followed by an on-site visit to the training area for Martin County Fire and Rescue. Students trained side by side with current recruits, experiencing the rigorous physical demands these brave men and women must achieve to become firefighters in Martin County.

The final visit of the day was a behind the scenes tour from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility. Students enjoyed a K-9 presentation from Deputies Billy Baker and Ryan Perlman and Sgts. William Weiss and Travis Dykes, while learning how German Shepherds are trained to assist officers in tasks vital to law enforcement. Sheriff William Snyder spoke to the students as future leaders of their communities, encouraging them to never give up, never set goals too low, and build upon their successes one layer at a time.

Martin Youth LEADERship: Students Learn the Consequences of Breaking the Law During Public Safety Day

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, December 11, 35 students from this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship class held their fourth monthly session of the 2018-19 school year, PUBLIC SAFETY DAY.

Students met professionals from the 19th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, including the Honorable Chief Judge Elizabeth Metzger, Public Defender John Henrik and Chief Prosecutor Nina Denton. Metzger, Henrik and Denton presented an overview of the court system in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties. Among the topics of discussion were the differences between circuit and county courts, the differences between prison and jail, the types of courts available in the 19th circuit (juvenile, dependency, mental health, Veterans, etc) and the process from arrest through incarceration. Students were also given solid advice in making smart choices during their student years, and how to prepare for the many varied careers in the legal arena.

The students’ morning in court was followed by an on-site visit to the training area for Martin County Fire and Rescue. Students trained side by side with current recruits, experiencing the rigorous physical demands these brave men and women must achieve to become firefighters in Martin County.

The final visit of the day was a behind the scenes tour from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility. Students enjoyed a K-9 presentation from Deputies Billy Baker and Ryan Perlman and Sgts. William Weiss and Travis Dykes, while learning how German Shepherds are trained to assist officers in tasks vital to law enforcement. Sheriff William Snyder spoke to the students as future leaders of their communities, encouraging them to never give up, never set goals too low, and build upon their successes one layer at a time.

After lunch, students were given a S.W.A.T. demo from Lt. Reuben Romero and his team: Peter Croft, Jake Sermons and Brian Parker. The team displayed and explained the use of various S.W.A.T. equipment, including why studying math can be an important topic should one wish to learn how to use explosives. Students were then given a tour of the Bearcat used by the MCSO.

The day concluded with a brief tour of the jail, led by Sgt. Syler and Deputy Sanchez. The students learned how inmates are brought to and processed at the MCSO jail and saw firsthand about the complete lack of rights and privacy one should expect if in jail. They also viewed the “restraining chair” and learned how ably it can restrain even the strongest adults for their own safety.

Many thanks go to program chair Robert Bruton and his committee: Trisha Kukuvka and Brad Beckett, who organized the day.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program for high school students is in its 22nd year. The group is continually striving to better serve the students that have made application, and been accepted in the program. The current Martin Youth LEADERship program is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply, and no more than 40 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on Covey’s Effective Habits and other leadership enhancing activities. Every effort is made to select a racially, gender diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience.

Martin Youth LEADERship Program Participated in Economics Day

Out2News.com

Stuart-36 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in Economics Day, their third monthly session of the school year, on November 13. Session Coordinator Marie Duenas-Weller from the Business Development Board of Martin County offered the students a full day immersion into “the business of business” on the Treasure Coast.

The day kicked off with brief remarks from Ed Ciampi, Chairman of the Martin County Board of Commissioners, who advised students to use their leadership skills to the betterment of others, especially peers in need of help with the pressures facing today’s teens. He was followed by Ted Astolfi, Executive Director of the Economic Council of Martin County. Mr. Astolfi gave an educational overview of how money flows into and out of our local economy, differentiating between primary and consumptive industries.

Students then toured the Martin County’s Sheriff’s Aviation facility, learning about how the helicopters and the technical equipment used by our MCSO are used to track and, if necessary, capture potential criminals in our county. Students also received a “bird’s eye” view of the Witham Field airport from the Air Traffic Control Tower, learning about the aviation industry and related careers.

MYL students toured Triumph Aerospace Structures, literally learning the “nuts and bolts” of building aircraft. They also toured Southeastern Printing Company, and saw first- hand why Southeastern is an award-winning, full service printing company.

Finally, it was off to lunch at the Hutchinson Island Resort & Spa. The working lunch was graciously underwritten by Fiorella Insurance Agency. While students dined on delicious flatbreads and other treats, Nerissa Okiye, Marketing Manager from the Martin County Tourism and Marketing Department, presented an overview of tourism in our area. She explained why tourism dollars are so important to our local economy, and the ways in which her office attracts and tracks those who visit the Treasure Coast.

The day concluded with a brief, hands-on activity presented by Tim Dougher, Executive Director of the Business Development Board, and Mrs. Weller. Students unleashed their creativity with the “Economic Developer For a Day” activity, offering their insights into how they might convert currently unoccupied commercial real estate into many creative enterprises, from a flea market, to a homeless shelter to a workforce training facility.

For more information on how you, your business or your high school aged students can become involved in Martin Youth LEADERship, please contact Jeanne Dunn at martinyouthleadership@gmail.com or call 772-486-4695. We are constantly seeking to individuals and organizations which will help us inform, challenge and stimulate students to develop the qualities necessary to become the next generation of Treasure Coast leaders.

Martin Youth LEADERship Program Participated in Economics Day

Out2News.com

Stuart-36 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in Economics Day, their third monthly session of the school year, on November 13. Session Coordinator Marie Duenas-Weller from the Business Development Board of Martin County offered the students a full day immersion into “the business of business” on the Treasure Coast.

The day kicked off with brief remarks from Ed Ciampi, Chairman of the Martin County Board of Commissioners, who advised students to use their leadership skills to the betterment of others, especially peers in need of help with the pressures facing today’s teens. He was followed by Ted Astolfi, Executive Director of the Economic Council of Martin County. Mr. Astolfi gave an educational overview of how money flows into and out of our local economy, differentiating between primary and consumptive industries.

Students then toured the Martin County’s Sheriff’s Aviation facility, learning about how the helicopters and the technical equipment used by our MCSO are used to track and, if necessary, capture potential criminals in our county. Students also received a “bird’s eye” view of the Witham Field airport from the Air Traffic Control Tower, learning about the aviation industry and related careers.

MYL students toured Triumph Aerospace Structures, literally learning the “nuts and bolts” of building aircraft. They also toured Southeastern Printing Company, and saw first- hand why Southeastern is an award-winning, full service printing company.

Finally, it was off to lunch at the Hutchinson Island Resort & Spa. The working lunch was graciously underwritten by Fiorella Insurance Agency. While students dined on delicious flatbreads and other treats, Nerissa Okiye, Marketing Manager from the Martin County Tourism and Marketing Department, presented an overview of tourism in our area. She explained why tourism dollars are so important to our local economy, and the ways in which her office attracts and tracks those who visit the Treasure Coast.

The day concluded with a brief, hands-on activity presented by Tim Dougher, Executive Director of the Business Development Board, and Mrs. Weller. Students unleashed their creativity with the “Economic Developer For a Day” activity, offering their insights into how they might convert currently unoccupied commercial real estate into many creative enterprises, from a flea market, to a homeless shelter to a workforce training facility.

Martin Youth LEADERship Program Participated in Economics Day

Out2News.com

Stuart-36 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in Economics Day, their third monthly session of the school year, on November 13. Session Coordinator Marie Duenas-Weller from the Business Development Board of Martin County offered the students a full day immersion into “the business of business” on the Treasure Coast.

The day kicked off with brief remarks from Ed Ciampi, Chairman of the Martin County Board of Commissioners, who advised students to use their leadership skills to the betterment of others, especially peers in need of help with the pressures facing today’s teens. He was followed by Ted Astolfi, Executive Director of the Economic Council of Martin County. Mr. Astolfi gave an educational overview of how money flows into and out of our local economy, differentiating between primary and consumptive industries.

Students then toured the Martin County’s Sheriff’s Aviation facility, learning about how the helicopters and the technical equipment used by our MCSO are used to track and, if necessary, capture potential criminals in our county. Students also received a “bird’s eye” view of the Witham Field airport from the Air Traffic Control Tower, learning about the aviation industry and related careers.

MYL students toured Triumph Aerospace Structures, literally learning the “nuts and bolts” of building aircraft. They also toured Southeastern Printing Company, and saw first- hand why Southeastern is an award-winning, full service printing company.

Finally, it was off to lunch at the Hutchinson Island Resort & Spa. The working lunch was graciously underwritten by Fiorella Insurance Agency. While students dined on delicious flatbreads and other treats, Nerissa Okiye, Marketing Manager from the Martin County Tourism and Marketing Department, presented an overview of tourism in our area. She explained why tourism dollars are so important to our local economy, and the ways in which her office attracts and tracks those who visit the Treasure Coast.

The day concluded with a brief, hands-on activity presented by Tim Dougher, Executive Director of the Business Development Board, and Mrs. Weller. Students unleashed their creativity with the “Economic Developer For a Day” activity, offering their insights into how they might convert currently unoccupied commercial real estate into many creative enterprises, from a flea market, to a homeless shelter to a workforce training facility.

For more information on how you, your business or your high school aged students can become involved in Martin Youth LEADERship, please contact Jeanne Dunn at martinyouthleadership@gmail.com or call 772-486-4695. We are constantly seeking to individuals and organizations which will help us inform, challenge and stimulate students to develop the qualities necessary to become the next generation of Treasure Coast leaders.

The group is continually striving to better serve the students that have made application, and been accepted into the program. The Martin Youth LEADERship program is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply, and a maximum of 40 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County.

Out2News.com

Out2News.comStuart, November 1 – On January 28, Mary “May” Smyth will be honored by The Library Foundation of Martin County as the 2019 recipient of the Kiplinger Literacy Award.

The award will be presented at the Kiplinger Literacy Award Luncheon, held at Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club in Palm City. Knight Kiplinger, editor-in-chief of Kiplinger Publications, will be the keynote speaker.

“Over the years, May has dedicated her considerable energies to ensuring that the foundation continues to thrive. Her leadership and support help provide the necessary resources for many of the essential literacy programs available through the Martin County Library System,” said Stacy Ranieri, president of the foundation’s board of directors. “We are delighted to have this opportunity to recognize May for her many contributions to literacy in Martin County.”

“Our libraries are true gems of Martin County. Libraries and literacy are two things I am passionate about. I feel fortunate to be able to support the efforts of the Library Foundation in sharing these passions with all of Martin County,” said Smyth.

May Smyth and her husband Vincent discovered Martin County as tourists more than 25 years ago. Five years later, they began a new life here as snowbirds when they joined the Sailfish Point community. May has a master’s degree in library science and was active in arts in education programs in New York. She loves to travel and worked for American Airlines after college. Her most memorable trip was a 21-day around-the-world trip.

Smyth served on the Library Foundation board of directors for three three-year terms. She chaired three consecutive fundraising galas and was instrumental in the establishment of the Founders Society, the crucial fundraising arm of the Library Foundation. Her favorite event is BookMania!, the foundation’s free-of-charge annual event. “It is fascinating to hear the authors talk and to learn about what motivates them to write,” said Smyth.

Keynote speaker Knight Kiplinger has deep roots in Martin County and an enduring connection to the Library Foundation. The Kiplinger family has been a part of the Treasure Coast since 1952 when Kiplinger’s grandfather was seeking a refuge from the “hubbub” of Washington, D.C. Among the family’s many contributions to the area was a plot of land on East Ocean Boulevard in Stuart for the construction of the county’s first library.

Kiplinger’s remarks will offer attendees a unique ringside perspective on the leaders and policies that shape our future. The Kiplinger Letter is the most widely read and longest-published business forecasting publication in the world. Among the company’s many accolades, Kiplinger Publications was named one of America’s most ethical companies in 2009 by Ethisphere Magazine.

INDIAN RIVER STATE COLLEGE AWARDED FLORIDA JOB GROWTH GRANT FOR AVIATION AND MARINE TRAINING

Out2News.com

FORT PIERCE, FL – Governor Rick Scott announced on October 30, 2018, that the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) has awarded a $1.53 million grant to Indian River State College (IRSC) through the Florida Job Growth Grant Fund. This award will allow IRSC to expand its nationally recognized model of workforce training and industry partnerships into a new IRSC Aviation and Marine Training Program (AMP) to meet the growing workforce needs of two key industries.

The marine and aerospace industries are significant employers and agents of economic development for Florida’s Treasure Coast. Combined they currently have more than 300 high-wage job openings. Growth in these industries is limited by the need for a specially trained workforce across all levels of employment, which will be addressed by the IRSC Aviation and Marine Training Program.

“Indian River State College has a proven track record of directly responding to workforce needs, particularly in rapidly evolving industries such as aviation and marine manufacturing,” said Dr. Edwin Massey, IRSC President. “We greatly appreciate this support from Governor Scott and the Department of Economic Opportunity as it will help grow local industry and most importantly, expand a talent pipeline of skilled workers, helping hundreds of students qualify for high-wage employment.”

Responsive to community needs for high-tech industrial training and technical certificate programs, the new IRSC Aviation and Marine Training Program will enable IRSC to train up to 140 workers each year. These needs were recognized in the 2017 Treasure Coast Skills Gap Study completed by the St. Lucie County Economic Development Council (EDC).

“Manufacturing is so vitally important to the Treasure Coast and Florida as a rich source of high-skill, high-wage jobs. Our region boasts a well-defined cluster of aviation and marine-related companies which are growing and expanding,” said Peter Tesch, President, Economic Development Council of St. Lucie County. “Workforce readiness is now the currency of economic development and the Governor’s award of the Job Growth Grant Fund to IRSC will pay dividends to both employers and the skilled professionals they hire.”

The Aviation and Marine Training Program will prepare workers for careers with average starting salaries of $44,000 a year—$11,000 over the current average regional salary. This is a $2.8 million direct increase and a $14 million indirect increase to the local economy. The personal and community impact provides sustainable, strong middle class salaries to strengthen our economy and community for years to come.
