The importance of sportsmanship

Growing up, I wasn’t much of an athlete, and today it shows. 

Often when I compete, whether it’s at sports, card games or a friendly March Madness work pool, I have a hard time demonstrating good sportsmanship. If I’m not a winner, I’m a sore loser. It’s not something I’m proud of, but I’m learning.

KidsQuest Spotlight: The Harder Family

I remember meeting the Harder family for the first time. I was the Friday night floor manager, and Mike and Audrey were regulars. Little Audrey (who isn’t so little anymore) immediately stole my heart. Mike, Christy, Audrey and Caitlin quickly became a part of the KidsQuest family. The staff gets excited when we see that they’ve registered for one of our programs or events and it’s been so great watching the girls grow. 

When I decided to feature a family that represents KidsQuest’s mission on our blog, I had the Harders in mind. They have been members since January of 2012 and they represent the whole-family learning approach we value at KidsQuest. Member families like the Harders are an integral part of KidsQuest’s success, and we truly appreciate their continued participation in our programs as well as their donations to our annual fund.
