Description: At large retail stores, inventory needs to be counted using a scanner on a regular basis. This lets the store know when to bring in new inventory, track popular items, identify how much will be moved to a new location for clearance, etc. In this video an employee is tracking inventory because the entire section is moving to another location in the store and she wants to make sure no items get lost in the move.

Description: Sometimes a customer will look at an item and then return it to the wrong spot. Employees need to notice when something is in the wrong location and then move the item to where it belongs. In this video there is a container of seeds that are moved to where they are supposed to be. Some of the seeds look a lot alike, so it's important to match the picture and the words on the packet.
Description: When you work in a retail store one of the tasks you will be asked to complete is called "facing" items. This means that you move items to the front of the shelf and straighten them up. This makes the isle look fully stocked, even if it is not. It also helps the store have a clean, welcome look for shoppers.

Description: A Nature Trail for students on land behind the Academy Learning Center. was conceived of and completed because of Greg Braun, a Monroe High School senior.
Greg read an article about the Academy Learning Center, which offers separate, specialized programs for students 3-21 with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Multiple Disabilities, and noticed a student's comment regarding how much he enjoyed outdoor activities.
That inspired Greg to approach ALC Principal Dr. Erik Solberg about constructing a Nature Trail as a way of demonstrating his leadership skills, a requirement in his pursuit of becoming an Eagle Scout.
A year later, Greg’s leadership skills were proven, resulting in a wheelchair accessible Nature Trail for student and community use.
