One of the family moves on…

For anyone that has ever gone through our programs over the last 3 years, been a member of the community, anyone that wanted some more information on what we do, needed help with accomodations, had a question here or there, had a need for various assistance while at the training or our continued education, or or know who made it all happen: Cindy (who many of us have lovingly referred to as 'Mom' based on her being the glue of this Master/MCA family).

Well, today was Cindy's last day at Microsoft, and we're all going to miss her a ton. She's chosen to take a quick break and see what other challenges she can find.

It really is a bit of family here. Times change, people may move to different roles, but there's a common bond that everyone that's touched the programs shares. It's a bit of 'us against the world' type of thing. We all truly believe in these special programs that we have the privelege of working on..this niche thing that isn't necessarily at the center of others' reach and revenue goals, but that really allows us to connect with people on a real level and change the world one person, one community at a time. Yeah, sounds pretty cheesy, sorry...but it's true.

But I digress...Cindy - thank you again for everything. We know you'll be a great success no matter what your next challenge is, and rest assured - you'll always be a member of this family.

    If you needed something all you had to do was ask Cindy and consider it done. Thanks for all the support it really made a difference.

    Hopefully you will post a reply to this blog when you are finished with your break and go on finding those chalenges in live. Thanks for helping me and my roommate during ranger to move appartments twice one for a broken toilet and one for a snoring neighbour.

    Cindy, you are awesome!  Through the many administrative challenges the program has faced, it’s always been a pleasure and a delight to work with you.  We will miss having you "take care" of us.  I hope you spend your time enjoying and taking care of yourself!  All the very best in whatever is next for you.
