New Admissions Video

There is a new version of the "Leaders for a Lifetime" video that many of us are familiar with. A version of this is available as a streaming video on the 'net - meaning you can simply click on one of the links below, and watch the video using a program such as Windows Media Player. Click on the applicable link, according to the type of connection you have to the internet:

Leaders for a Lifetime (DSL)

Leaders for a Lifetime (Dial-up)

I also have a VHS tape of the same video - so if you are interested in obtaining a copy, just e-mail me.
