Letter from the President – May 2022

Birth. Death. Celebration. Remembrance. Anniversary.

It may not come as a surprise, but in the dictionary, the word anniversary translates to “the date on which an event took place in a previous year.” Of course, that’s true, but in my opinion, it’s an awfully dry explanation for a much more powerful meaning.

Letter from the President – March 2022

“The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race.” Have you ever done a marathon? I’ve only ever run a half marathon in my life, but since they wrapped me in the “tin foil blanket” at the finish line, it totally counts in my mind. So for those who have run a marathon (or some version of it), you can probably recount the number of hours of dedication and training that you put in before the race.

Letter from the President – February 2022

January was a blur. Life has a way of being overwhelmingly busy and everything is battling to be the highest priority. To be honest, I’m struggling and far from perfect (cue the crying 😊). As I write this, I have just returned from my son’s youth hockey tournament weekend in beautiful Whitefish, Montana. He is only 8, but this is his third tournament this month! My weekends this time of year (well, hockey season is long, from October – March) revolve around winter driving to both well-known towns as well as remote, obscure destinations. His team is playing strong right now, and even though this weekend wasn’t their best team performance—far from it—they worked just well enough as a unit to grit it out and take home the championship. That seems to be equally true to life, right?

Letter from the President – December 2021

As I sit writing this article, it’s a quiet, foggy winter morning. Houses are shrouded in a dense cloud cover and there is a calm over my neighborhood. Though Scotland is thousands of miles away from Spokane, I feel like I’ve finally found Brigadoon (a reference my old school movie lovers will understand). It’s peaceful. Thanksgiving has passed and lights are starting to adorn more and more homes with each passing day. I love this time of year: Hallmark movies, cozy jammies, and hot cocoa

Letter from the President – November 2021

If last month’s amazing scholarship banquet taught me anything it is that investing in people—young people as well as people young at heart—is always the right thing to do. And that’s what EWI does. We invest not only in students who are setting the world on fire, but we are actively investing in each other and in this great community.

Letter from the President – February 2021

February is the month of love! Plato classified the love of friends and equals as Philia, and that describes our chapter so beautifully. Many start their EWI journey for strictly business reasons, and they stay in EWI because of the close relationships that they form. I, for one, am so grateful for the experience I’ve gained through EWI, but even more grateful for the people I have met.
