You are so deserving of this recognition and award! I am grateful to be in a journey together in our work for the Stakeholders' Advisory Committee and the Chesapeake Bay Program. You have taught me a lot, made me laugh, and served as a patient listener and supportive colleague. The amount of time that you offer in service to the Committee and all the causes that you are passionate about is an inspiration. I admire your devotion, your courage, and your integrity.
Thank you for all you do, but especially, thank you for your friendship!
