From the Exec Director
KAFP
Dear Friends,

In December 1989, the KAFP Board took a chance and hired a former teacher & former teacher association leader: me! I can't believe it's been 25 years — they have sped by all too quickly! AAFP honored me with an Executive Service Award during the recent ALF/NCSC meeting and I was humbled by the outpouring of congratulations and good wishes. Thank YOU for being a KAFP member and supporting the organization, for however-many years it is for you. From your first year through your 25th and beyond, we want to be your premier organization, representing your interests and concerns.



Carolyn (middle) with her award surrounded by KAFP leaders. Back: Doug Gruenbacher, Jen Brull, Lynn Fisher, Mike Munger, Sheryl Beard, Khalil Alleyne, Courtney Huhn and John Feehan. Front: Jennifer McKenney, Mary Beth Miller, Carolyn, and Diane Steere.

Sincerely,



Carolyn Gaughan, CAE
Executive Director
