A Month of Appreciation
Life in a pandemic has not been easy for anyone, but the month of May is giving us many opportunities to reach deep and find the appreciation and the thanks that keeps us moving forward in a positive direction. This month has reminded us to celebrate the many people who aide us, who help us grow and encourage our personal development. Throughout this month we have celebrated weeks dedicated to the celebration of our nurses and our teachers. Most recently we took the day to celebrate our mothers and the women in our lives who inspire us and encourage our development on the most personal of levels. At IMAGE we welcome the opportunity to show our appreciation to the mothers, the professionals, the amazing people who provide support in our day to day lives. We hope that you will take some time this month to show your appreciation to those who have dedicated their lives to service if you have not yet already. From all of us at The IMAGE Center, from our students and staff, we say THANK YOU!
