Note of appreciation from Julie Lowrie, Kindergarten teacher:

MASSIVE IMPACT indeed! Our Foundation ROCKED this year! There is no way for us to appropriately thank you…just as there is no way to fully comprehend all the behind the scenes work this feat required!
Angie, you and your officers did not let a worldwide pandemic stop you from thinking outside the box. You brought fresh ideas and creativity. ALL Ravens and staff will benefit for years. I, personally, (just to give one example) witnessed incredible growth in 5 young kindergarteners who received Impact services. It got them back on track after a year of virtual learning. How will our Foundation ever know where that ripple effect will lead those children?
Thank you! I’m wishing all of our Foundation members a happy, healthy, restful summer!
Fondly, Julie
