Listening to Curtis

The media calls Curtis “Wall Street” Carroll the “Oracle of San Quentin” for his stock picking prowess and ability to translate financial information into simple language for his students.

Student Intern Jonathan Klinker in the News (Again!)

Our Student Intern, Jonathan Klinker, makes the news! We are all so very proud of him!

Reprint from 18-year old, Jonathan Klinker has earned 141 merit badges during his time with the Boy Scouts.

“I’m about one of 5 in the nation or so that has earned 141 and one in scouting history that have earned all the merit badges,” said Klinker.

Klinker has mastered many skills and many consider him a jack of all trades including woodcarving, canoeing, swimming and emergency preparedness.

What makes Klinker’s accomplishment so rare is that one only needs 21 merit badges to become an Eagle Scout. In fact, there are only 137 badges available right now.

Other badges available include water sports and even nuclear science.

The teen has also raised thousands of dollars for St. Christopher’s Church in Tiverton and remolded a half century old bathroom, all by himself.

Although he’s proud of his accomplishments, Klinker says it has a greater meaning.

“It’s sort of about giving back to the community and making the world a better place,” said Klinker.

The Eagle Scout will be heading off to college and hopes other young scouts will follow in his footsteps and become a leader.

Listening to David

We talk all the time, about this huge tear in our social fabric.

We know of no other American that consistently talks with extraordinary understanding, exceptional language and specific context and examples about the stuff we care about.

We’re in the business of building a more caring and connected community and we respect Mr. Brooks beyond measure. He is a bright and shining light and a national treasure.
