Diversity in Education: Video Interview with WellSpring’s President Don Farquharson
Diversity is one of the most important features that a school can offer its students. By supporting a diverse population, institutions provide their students with experiences to meet and learn from people they normally wouldn’t have the opportunity to interact with at school. Diversity in the classroom prepares students for a variety of people they will one day interact within the workforce.

Don Farquharson, president and CEO at WellSpring, has witnessed first-hand how the school has grown and changed over the years. Farquharson said, “This used to be a massage therapy school and it was a 98, 99 percent Caucasian student body. Today, I’m pleased to say that we have a 30 percent non-Caucasian student body. It’s very diverse and we love it that way.”

Virtual Versus Reality: Why Personal Trainers Are Better Than Fitness Trackers

Virtual Versus Reality: Why Personal Trainers Are Better Than Fitness Trackers 

Almost everyone has seen people walking around with gadgets like fitbits, Apple watches and everything in between. Needless to say, the obsession with them and the information they provide us with is real.

They provide us with how many steps we’ve taken, how many miles we’ve walked, our heart rate, activity logger and even the calories we’ve burned. We spend hours watching those numbers rise over the course of the day, watching to see if we hit our goals or not. Some of us go as far as going on that extra walk or putting in an extra hour at the gym.
