Managing the Classroom - Integrating a Career-Ready Classroom
Most school districts establish respectable and beneficial programs that assist with student learning, but it’s rare there is a vast focus on managing the classroom. Most 7th through 12th grade schools have incorporated business-based curriculums; however, many instructors lack the business experience necessary to create realistic context for their lesson plans. This leaves students unprepared to establish a strong foundation for hands-on experience in the workforce. The Career Ready Education Foundation can better prepare students for the technology demands and the fast-paced professional environment that they will experience in the workplace. As we all know, electronic devices and social media have played a huge role in limiting children from communicating in the most effective way and teachers will now have the most applicable tools and strategies to assist students with career preparation and successfully perform at high levels.

Kentucky Peerless Distilling Tour - $39
The Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company offers behind the scenes tours for an up close look at how they craft the finest spirits from grain to bottle-all under one roof. Their urban distillery and vast family history are sure to make this experience one you won’t forget. In addition to the tour, Cordell Lawrence, Director of Global Marketing and Strategy, will share some marketing insights and answer any questions.

Cordell shares his thoughts of being a caretaker of Peerless, "I’m truly grateful to have had the privilege of working for some of the most iconic Spirit brands in the world including Maker’s Mark, Jack Daniel’s and Southern Comfort, but nothing compares to the day I first heard the Peerless Story from the man himself, Corky Taylor. Corky’s warmth, authenticity and integrity are unparalleled. His purpose is to make the finest product without hesitation, just as his Great-grandfather, Henry Kraver, did in the 1800’s. I am humbled and honored to be one of the caretakers of Peerless.
