"15 Wonderful Years"
Dear CMP Community Members,
Early Sunday morning, I stopped by my favorite coffee shop to grab a coffee to-go. On the door was a large sign stating "Thank You for 15 wonderful years," announcing "Today is our last day." Of course, I was instantly struck by the message. As CMP's Executive Director for 15 wonderful years, today (June 30) is MY last day, as well!
A lot has happened during those 15 years. While the organization has experienced many successes during that time, my greatest memories are of you (the students, families and staff). I have always sought to serve you with kindness, respect and integrity...and, you have responded in like manner. Words cannot adequately express the depth of my appreciation for each and every one of you. Thank You for allowing me the "gift of service."
Best Wishes to you and yours!
