PORTLAND, Maine – Recently, Winxnet, an IT outsourcing and consulting firm headquartered in Portland, hosted a small group of sixth graders from King Middle School and spoke about “Rules to Live By.”

This “Rules to Live By” expedition is focused on having the students think about ways they will be able to succeed and thrive at the King Middle School. The students are studying rules to live by and how these rules can influence people’s lives, and how they impact the communities in which they live.

Jared Simms, a VCIO at Winxnet shared his “Rules to Live By” with the students and explained how these rules shape his life. “I spoke about three rules that I have tried to follow in my life which are to be kind, be trustworthy, and to take every opportunity to learn good things. We had a good discussion about how I came to value these rules and how living by them affects my life. The students were all great and I hope this is a project that they incorporate into their lives.”

Suzanne Murphy, the Marketing Assistant at Winxnet also spoke to the students about her “Rules to Live By” and how she integrates these rules into her life. “I spoke to the students about the two rules that I have tried to incorporate into my daily routine which are to be generous and to work hard. We had a great conversation about these rules and how they have helped me get to where I am today.”

Winxnet supports a variety of community events in all of its office locations throughout the year. In January, Winxnet will be hosting 25 students as part of the Job Shadow Day with the Junior Achievement of Maine.  Winxnet also participates in a number of other community events in both our Massachusetts and Tennessee offices.
