Hello Everyone!

WOW, it's hard to believe this marks 6 months of email blasts due to the Pandemic!  Time has certainly had a very different meaning for me over the past half a year.  In some ways the time has flown by and in others it has dragged.  What I truly miss the most is the in person connection and HUGS!!  What do you miss the most?

*A local group of students is doing a survey and has asked us to please share the link to take a brief, confidential survey.  Thank you for your help!
