"Thank you to the ERA nomination committee for finding me worthy of the ERA Spotlight Award. It is truly an honor to be recognized from among many worthy and deserving colleagues. I have been with May Institute for 18+ years and in that time I have worked with a lot of dedicated employees who put our students' needs above their own and they go over and above to ensure those needs are met. I am lucky to call my colleagues, my friends, and this makes me look forward to coming to work each and every day and give my best even when there are challenges. This award means a lot to me and it inspires me to do even more to make my colleagues' days better and our students' days more meaningful. Like I always say, “Keep on smiling, J."
