President's Message


November brings my favorite holiday of the year, Thanksgiving. It’s not about gifts. It’s about family. It’s about food. It’s about Black Friday shopping just to be out together at 4 o’clock in the morning for no better reason than to hang out. It’s a good time to look back and think about what you’re thankful for in your life. It may be health. It may be a job. It may be licensure. It could be as simple as breathing in each day or as complex as looking back and watching how one life-changing moment during the year has changed your life by the end of the year. Whatever it is, it’s never too large or too small to be thankful about.
