Can You Pass the Civics Test That Those Seeking Citizenship Must Pass?

Asheville, NC, June 29, 2015 — /EPR EDUCATION NEWS/ — Newly released Civics Handbook presents you with the information and the test to examine your own civics proficiency, and provides a study tool assisting children, adults and all students to learn the material. And while learning, you might be inspired to visit and see where some of U.S. history unfolded as Historic Sites, Places, Parks, Battlefields, Sites of Remembrance and National Treasures are listed in the book. Americana A Civics Handbook Second Edition was released June 20, 2015 (ISBN# 978-1514221563) by Mary B. Mackley of Asheville, NC.

There has been an increased frequency and an almost urgent drumbeat of stories reporting a lack of knowledge of Civics and American History in our schools. Even comedians have highlighted this issue while embarking in random questioning of adults in various settings. When quizzed about American History and Civics….the answer given may be incorrect (and pretty funny), but the point is made…there’s a knowledge deficit and room for improvement! While this may seem amusing at first, when you really think about it, it’s not so funny.

Our Sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln, said…”I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any National crisis.The great point is to bring them the real facts…” This book brings you the facts. The Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights; facts about Early America, the Original Thirteen Colonies, U.S. Presidents, the fifty states, National Symbols, U.S. Wars and more are included. Facts presented will help you have more understanding of the questions and answers on the topics covered by the civics test. Over 50 pages of historic sketches add an additional visual dimension in appreciation of our history.

Mary B. Mackley, a nurse for 30 years, embraced the role as teacher in working with her patients throughout the years. Her passion for History and Civics was formulated in her youth, in AP History classes through St. John’s University, and the time she spent providing interpretive guided tours and programs at a National Historic Site during and after college.

The book is available at Amazon, or through the website below. For more information about Americana A Civics Handbook Second Edition and the author, please visit You can contact Mary B. Mackley at (828)606-7263 or

AMCM is Changing How Students are Fundraising

Oklahoma City, OK, June 26, 2015 — /EPR EDUCATION NEWS/ — Association Motor Club Marketing (AMCM) just announced they will launch their new mobile application, AMCM Presentation, during the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA-PBL) National Leadership Conference in Chicago June 25- July 1, 2015. The app was designed specifically for Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) participating in the AMCM Fundraising Program.

AMCM is one of the only organizations at the FBLA Conference giving students the opportunity to learn technologically advanced business skills by fundraising through their smartphones and tablets. It is also one of the only fundraising options providing students with recurring revenue, another learning opportunity for students.

AMCM partnered with Victory Info Services to utilize Victory’s 360’s mobile platform. This provides students with the necessary tools on their phones to successfully present and complete the sale of AMCM’s roadside assistance and travel discount programs. These tools include a sales presentation and video, plus a communication feature allowing chapter Advisors to connect with their members. Other features of the app include the fundraising FAQs, a gas price finder, weather, roadside assistance demo, and support.

Regarding the inspiration behind the new app, Mark Muncey, Director of Fundraising, explained, “Traditional fundraising efforts have been made with sales of food and candy. Chapter Advisors were frustrated with those options which are labor-intensive as they demand collection and storage of inventory, extensive bookkeeping, and delivery of the product.”

“Our platform is designed to make the fundraising process easier on both students and Advisors,” he pointed out. “The ability for students to participate by using their smartphones to generate a recurring revenue stream is a real homerun for any chapter. We are excited to introduce this program at the FBLA Conference in Chicago.”

“Victory is honored to be working with AMCM, an organization that not only takes a part in helping students build important business skills, but also fundraises for good causes,” stated Mark Burns, Vice President Business Development and General Manager of Victory Info Services. “Because technology will continue to revolutionize how the world does business, it’s more important than ever to equip students with the necessary skills to succeed.”
