At his inauguration, President Obama stressed the importance of community service and personal responsibility. As the administration enters its second week, it would do us well not to forget the meaning of these words and how we as professionals can impact the Atlanta community. That is why I urge all AABE members to become involved in our student chapters and our mentoring activities with high school students. Despite the milestone we witnessed on January 20, our youth still need accessible role models and mentors in their own community.
