Now that I am retired from teaching, I see even more clearly the value of education in our community. I find great satisfaction in doing what I can to support our public schools. If we all simply do what we can, the pathway to the future for our students and our community will be the very brightest it can be.

A year ago, a young man came to me with a giant hole in his shoe. Because of EVSC Foundation’s Hamman funds, I was able to buy him new shoes. I was also able to give him a hat and gloves. He was so happy, I thought he’d cry. The Foundation made it possible to quickly help this student in need.

I’d like to thank you, EVSC Foundation, and everyone else who has helped or contributed to make our baseball field a better diamond for us to play on. Thank you for helping develop the field and for the other great opportunities you’ve given us.

It feels great to play on such a nice field this year. It’s a big upgrade from what we’ve had and it’s nice to have the community behind us. Playing on the field we have now gives the whole team confidence, and no doubt will help us in the next few years.

My job at 90.7 WPSR allows me to take my two passions of broadcasting and teaching and share them with my students every day. The best part of my day is teaching. I love watching their skills and confidence grow.
