Give Thanks

November 18, 2011


The holiday season is upon us (despite it still being about 75 degrees outside), and the entire corps has been hard at work getting their small group tutoring and one-on-one sessions in before Thanksgiving break. It’s hard to believe we’ve come this far. It’s almost December, and we’re reaching the halfway point of our corps year.

On November 24th, families across America will be sitting at their dinner tables, carving their turkeys, and answering the age-old question: What are you thankful for?

So, what are you thankful for?

At Merrydale, we’re fortunate enough to have a team of focused go-getters, and their willingness to take on new and extreme challenges is inspiring. So I wanted to say thank you.

Thank you Holly, Callie, Lizzy, Andrew, Danny, Jessica R., Jessica M., Courtney, and Carolyn. Thank you for your positive attitude. Thank you for your determination. We have been through some hard times, but the good outweighs the bad, and that is because you all see the big picture and understand our purpose here at Merrydale. You each know what it means to make a difference, and you’re doing your part effortlessly.

I am thankful to come to school everyday and be a part of such a solid team. I am thankful to be a part of a fluid, focused group of young idealists. We have nowhere to go but up!

I’ve had too much turkey. It’s time for my nap.

In Service,

Jordan C.
