Thank You Trisha Myers!
It with much gratitude that we thank Trisha Myers for stepping up to serve as the Vanguard NELC lead this past year to help aid in supporting the Vanguard vision and mission. At this time Trisha would like to transition away from her leadership role while continuing to serve as a Vanguard member and is “only an email away”. We are grateful for her service and look forward to seeing all of her wonderful contributions to Vanguard through her work with the district.
We are very lucky to have a candidate from our fall interviews ready and willing to lead the charge for the NELC with Tammie St. John. Congratulations Renee Morris and welcome to the team!
