It is so excited and rewarding to teach young men and young ladies of our community etiquette and social behavior .  Expression of inner character, respect , kindness ,along with good citizenship, etiquette becomes the language of manners.  It is so different because it is a lost art that needs to be revived.  Rules of etiquette cover behavior in talking,  acting,  living, in other words in every type of interaction and every situation in life.  The only road block is transforming a vacant blighted property into a functional, commercial building that will stabilize the area, increase property values and return the building to the tax rolls.


The entire community would benefit from teaching etiquette a polite well bred community with social behavior and good manners benefits us all.

What I Will Do With $5,000

I would transform a vacant blighted property into a functional commercial building that would help stabilize the area, increase property values and return the property to tax rolls.  I would continue to support the revitalization efforts of the City of Muskegon Heights and the Glade Street Commercial Corridor.  I would be a role model of Public /Private partnership that other small businesses can strive for in the future.
