During February, Black History and CTAE month, I would like to recognize Michael Jordan for his contribution to the marketing profession. “Michael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials MJ, is an American businessman and former professional basketball player. He is the principal owner and chairman of the Charlotte Hornets” of the National Basketball Association. This month, and throughout the year, I encourage you to consider who you admire and how they have impacted the world in which we live, learn, and work. As for me, I'm thankful for Michael being the owner of The Jordan Brand (my favorite brand of shoes). He's also a grandpa now and makes sure to spend time with his family.  This is important because family is a key part to success in real life. Submitted by Riley Old, BCHS CTAE Marketing student.
