LaSheila Yates

1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
Resilience - Throughout this walk of life, we will all experience personal challenges. Yet, having the courage to pull through difficult times can be transformative to ones character and can build mental fortitude.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
Dateline ID This show gives me a window into the lives of real people that have faced difficult odds. I sometimes think, What if this were my family? How would we respond? I am often amazed at how families are able to stay hopeful in the face of horrendous incidents.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
Repeated follow-ups - Whether its asking my husband if he remembered to rsvp for a social or sending multiple emails to employees, I cannot resist making sure things are on target. Although annoying at times, I have used these skills to support and mentor students preparing for FTC robotics completions.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
So, what are you going to do differently next time? - Any time our son does not achieve expected outcomes, we challenge him to think about what he will differently next time to achieve desired results. Essentially, its the things we take away from experiences that are the most valuable.

5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
Wednesday Since Wednesday are midweek, our family views this day as an opportunity to reflect, regroup, reprioritize, and refocus. We view it as a second chance to end the week off on a good note.
