The start of the new year is always a time when we consider future goals and commitments--whether it's a plan to exercise more, to volunteer with an organization or to enhance career options by furthering our education. It's my hope--as we look at the year ahead--that you'll find inspiration from the articles below, and find many reminders that students, faculty and alumni of the Ammon School are busy and engaged professionals making outstanding contributions to their fields and to the children, young people and adults that they serve. I wish you a happy and productive new year.
All the best,
Jane Ashdown, Ph.D.
