LEAP Day comes once every four years, and if your organization is named “LEAP,” you want to make the most of it. So we did.
We began by taking our quadrennial “LEAP Day” shot.
For each LEAP Day shot, we take a photo in a different spot, and this year was at the CHSS Water Wall. This is a nice spot, because the LEAP Ambassadors contributed financially to the creation of this space several years ago and because Jesus Moroles, the artist who created the space, is one of our favorite artists, as the photos from NW Arkansas, Houston, Lubbock, Birmingham, and Huntsville below attest:
Here’s hoping for many more LEAP Day shots, and many more visits to Moroles’s sculptures!
The LEAP Ambassadors just finished a five-day trip to Arkansas, but they arrived home in time for LEAP Day. Not many organizations have a day named for them, but the LEAP Ambassadors treated it in appropriate fashion:
It was a picnic dinner at one of their favorite places: the Wynne Home. This also happens to be the workplace of Beatriz Martinez and the former workplace of Megan Chapa. Next door, the Smither Martin Law Firm (seen in the background) is the workplace of Kaitlyn Tyra.
With full employment, a grilled dinner by Austin Campbell, and a day named for them, they celebrated.
Of course, they can keep calm and carry on, when need be, and tomorrow they will return to their professional ways, with four of them working the elections and then gathering for a watch party.
