Dear SCM Community,

I am sending well wishes for a joy-filled and relaxing winter break. I hope that you have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones, whether they are virtual or safely together. There are truly no words that could express the awe and love that I feel for this community. 2020 has been a wild ride, however the sense of belonging, love and learning within our community, and the hard work I have seen, will forever stand out in my mind. We have witnessed first hand how with perseverance we can tackle great challenges. Through compassion and creativity we have kept our community together. My hope is that we will continue to come together to support one another as we move into 2021. I honestly can’t wait until we can celebrate in-person and be all together.

Be well and see you in 2021!

Much love,
Kim Saxton
