I always thought that the president’s role would be demanding, challenging and satisfying at the same time. Don’t get me wrong; I was up to the challenge and in fact embraced it with open arms. But I quickly found out that the president’s only true test was to surround one’s self with outstanding talent. That one strategic move will carry the presidency to an amazing victory. That is why I was honored to accept the Chapter of the Year Award on behalf of this year’s board; all of whom have not only done so much more than I ever expect but also have become some of my closest friends. What a privilege this role has been and I will be forever gifted with the relationships I have gained from it. Congrats to the team for a job well done.
– Kelly Dills, President 2008-09
