A Message from our President/CEO

Over the past 10 days, I have been at a total loss for words to express the many emotions that have been building up inside of me. The tragic passing of Mr. George Floyd is just the tip of a slow-moving iceberg that has finally touched a raw nerve in the conscience of the people of America and around the world. We cannot undo what is done, but we can open our eyes and minds to the injustice that led to this moment. Personally, I am seeing the light shining, where once only darkness lived. I hope and pray that our nation can become one of support, love, action, change, and unity amid this horror.
