Education and learning are one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be.  How open you are to learning will help determine your path in life.

Education does not just happen at school.  It is not just about Math and other subjects.  Your education and learning are happening all the time. They happen any time your mind is open to learning.

Education is not just about learning facts, but more so about learning how to think.  It is learning to make good choices.  It is learning to act with purpose.
