Nearly 20 years ago the first Branch School class I met impressed me with their gentleness, curiosity and energy.  I decided I wanted to volunteer there after retiring.  Once I realized the qualities I’d observed in students resulted from the school’s mission, I wanted to help it grow and prosper, and joined the Board.
