The Black Belt Leaders of Pilsung ATA Martial Arts strike again! This time one of their young Black Belt Candidates, Ms. Prescott, took Servant Leadership to a new level for the less fortunate animals in her community.
As many readers know, Pilsung ATA Martial Arts requires all Black Belts and Black Belt Candidates to perform some type of community service project as part of each test for new rank. These projects come from the heart of the student, they are asked to find a cause that they are passionate about and work to make a difference.
For Ms. Prescott this passion comes in the form of caring for animals. Her chosen cause, gathering food, toys and treats to help care for the animals at the Johnson County Humane Society. For this young leader the plight of stray and abandoned animals pulls at her heart and calls her to do something to help. For her project she set up collection boxes at a number of locations and worked to keep them empty and ready to accept donations. The results of her efforts will have an impact on the lives of the animals at the shelter. Her collection drive netted:
40 Lbs of Toys and Treats
200+Lbs of Dog Food
120+ Lbs of Cat Food
Paper Towels and Plastic Bags
$100 Check from Greenwood Machine Inc.
This is a fantastic outcome. Her efforts have made the lives of the stray and abandoned animals of the Johnson County Humane Society a little bit better as they await adoption. Her project is an awesome example of what it means to be a good leader by serving the needs of others, even if they are furry.
