            Good bye.  I attended the retirement function for a colleague once and at the lectern he said his good byes and that he would always be an ambassador for the district.  Now I know how he felt.  Creswell is a great community with even greater public schools; primarily because the employees and school supporters care and are passionate about the students.  I was/am honored to have worked with and for the constituents and students.  I wish the best for our new superintendent and I know you will continue a true professional relationship in the manner you have afforded me.  So…good bye…and thank you.
