In this special eTNL on education, I want to say a word about our Education Superintendent, Connie McCormick. Those who know her know that she is not one to raise her voice. Mrs. McCormick always has this calm presence that speaks volumes when you are dealing with children and teachers. In meetings she is not one to voice her opinion with a high tone, but when she speaks, you will notice that she has given a lot of thought to what she is saying. Her ideals are well processed.
We want to applaud Mrs. McCormick for her leadership in our education department. In the last few months she has shown leadership in the way she and her team handled the OLWEUS bullying prevention project. On a more personal level, I am thankful that she organized the Outdoor School to immerse the students in nature. I saw the light in my son’s eyes; I can assure you that he now has an increased awareness of God’s creation. Mrs. Connie McCormick has done many other small but significant programs that usually do not go to the press, but these are programs that impact lives for eternity, so can we join hands and applaud her for Jesus.
Brian K. Mungandi, Vice President for Administration
