President's Message

I would like to start with a special thank you to Ruth Erwert and Reagan Bellamy (past Co-President’s) for their leadership as well as our 2016 Board of Director’s for their dedication.  Their hard work is very much appreciated and was fully recognized as I transitioned into the role of President.  It is very clear just how much passion and dedication flowed through this group of leaders.  I am excited to work with the 2017 Board of Director’s as their drive for success mirrors that of our prior Board.  What an amazing group of people!  I am truly honored.      [More]
