Dear Friends,


I’m writing to let you know that effective July 1, 2021 I will be transitioning to the role of President of my alma mater, Incarnate Word Academy.


I want to thank you for your faithful and generous support of TTEF’s mission and welcome my successor, TTEF’s new Executive Director Julie Scott Soffner to her role.


When I reflect on my time at Today and Tomorrow, the first word that comes to mind is “Yes.”


An Executive Director’s dream is to be surrounded by board members, donors and partners who enthusiastically and passionately respond “yes” to supporting the mission and children Today and Tomorrow serves, many times before the “ask” is even uttered.


Fifteen years ago I would have never dreamed that my “yes” to TTEF would surround me with individuals that inspired me to be a better person, encouraged me to share my God given gifts and talents with others and challenged me to give generously and be a blessing to others.


Thank you! Together, our “yes” has and will continue to change the lives of children through the gift of education…providing Hope and Opportunity for a bright future.
