President's Message Kudos for Kenny and Conference Committee Tom Graham, CAA Kettle Falls Middle School
Wow! What a great conference! My hat is off to Kenny (Van Sickle) for having the courage to break new ground by changing the conference format and partnering with Mike and the WIAA Staff. With the new configuration a venue now exists for each school district in the state to communicate their thoughts and concerns regarding amendments and WIAA Board decisions. The conference is now the place to go not only for the important educational opportunity but to have your voice heard.
Dave and Cindy (Tikker)...I personally can’t thank you enough for all the help and guidance you provided me as Conference Chair and President. You are the backbone of the Association and the driving force behind our success.
It has been my honor to serve as President of the Association for the past year. The way the board stepped up to fill the needs at the conference ensured it’s smooth operation, whether taking tickets, presiding, presenting, working on technology or making the first timers and vendors feel welcome, it was truly impressive. The commitment of the board members, the quality of the work and the passion displayed is something you should all be proud of.
I hope each of you has a fantastic end to the school year and we’ll see you at the board meeting in Renton on Monday, June 22.
