Guest Blogger: Chris Crawford, Schoolwires President & CEO
I can’t believe we’re already entering into the holiday season. Where did 2014 go?
Each time this year, demands on our time get a bit overwhelming – we have feasts to prepare, gifts to share, people to see, travel to schedule, and maybe even a little snow to shovel. We also look forward to sharing very special time with our family and friends to celebrate the joys of the season.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to pause for a moment to reflect on the blessings the year has brought and to voice gratitude for the people who made this year so special in every way.
Today, I want to personally thank the members of the Schoolwires family—our amazing customers, our remarkable team of employees, our incredible partners, and our supportive Board of Directors and stockholders. But before I do, I want to encourage all of us to remember the men and women in our armed forces who are risking their lives every day to protect our freedom and the lives, rights, and freedoms of others. Thousands of those men and women will not be able to enjoy this holiday with their families, either because they are actively serving our country or because they lost their lives in service to our country. Words are hardly enough to thank them for their sacrifices.
To our customers: Thank you for your business and for trusting Schoolwires to serve you in such meaningful ways as you work tirelessly to meet everyday challenges and as you continue to demonstrate your passion to improve education outcomes for our nation’s children. We are proud to be a part of your journey.
To our employees: Schoolwires is blessed to have such a dedicated and passionate team of professionals who come to work each day with the ultimate goal of helping K-12 school districts reach their optimal level of community engagement through the products, services, and support we provide. Thank you for listening to the voice of our customers and for continually striving to exceed their expectations.
To our partners: Your cooperation and collaboration in delivering quality products and services to further our mutual mission to serve district leaders, parents, teachers, and students is a appreciated and invaluable. Thank you.
To our Board of Directors and stockholders: On behalf of the Schoolwires team, thank you for your ongoing support and guidance throughout the year and for being part of a phenomenal team dedicated to improving education domestically and internationally.
Schoolwires wishes all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Blessings to you and your circle of family and friends.
