A Curley Wolf Returns On Tuesday, March 28, several of Pearl Bailey’s Prescott Junior High classes were visited by Samantha Brown, a 2013 Curley Wolf alumnus, who treated them to samples of cookies from her bakery, “Samantha Brown’s Bakery and Cafe”, located in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Ms. Brown spoke of her upbringing within the Prescott community: attending Prescott Elementary School, McRae Middle School, and graduating from Prescott High. She encouraged students to participate in extra-curricular activities such as sports, FBLA, FAACS, and Talent Search because they will become a part of a team. Samantha reassured them that although she was a member of the basketball, track, and cross-country teams, she was not as good as she was on the golf team. She emphasized that whether your performance is average, good, or great, the importance was to be a team player and enjoy new healthy life experiences that teach you that practice makes better. Samantha added that a bonus is that you become better at solving small discomforts in life and finding solutions to major life challenges. She told students that you may think, as a youth, that what you are going through is a major life changing experience; that is when you need to seek advice. Samantha encouraged them to be resilient and remember that there are others who face or will one day face similar difficulties. One of Samantha’s difficulties occurred after she had taught school for one year and realized that she wasn’t enjoying it as much as she had hoped. However, her occasional baking for family, friends, and colleagues led her to a new discovery: she wanted to open a bakery. With the assistance of her husband and family she found a building, purchased the building, painted and renovated the building, and started “Samantha’s Bakery” in Arkadelphia. At her bakery she has found her niche and has expanded from having her husband as an assistant to presently having ten employees. Samathan Brown left the junior high students with these parting words of wisdom: “you don’t have to be good to be successful, you have to be willing to work hard and get better.” Thanks Samantha! Alumni are always welcome in Curley Wolf Country. PS: I am on the lookout for former Curley Wolves to step into my classroom to share their experiences. ~ Pearl Bailey
