I wanted to give you an important update. Most of you know that I've been looking for a school counseling job for sometime now. A few weeks ago, a job opening came up and I applied for it. After I interviewed for it, the next day they offered me the job. Now I'm McFadden's new school counselor. So the sad news is that I won't be around MacArthur as much as before. BUT the good news is that I'll be coming on Saturday runs from time to time to support the team.
Most importantly the good news is that Coach Jesse will be taking the lead, and keep the RunStrong Legacy Alive. Being a RunStrong Coach requires lots of time and dedication, so THANK Coach Jesse for committing to you ALL while he is also balancing school and family. If you got any questions feel free to email him or message him on REMIND. Especially if you are Alumni and want to come support future 5k's, reach out to Coach Jesse on the Remind app or email. This change up is hard for me. Especially since I will MISS seeing you guys on a regular basis. RunStrong Family is still family no matter what. BUT that is what I expect from all of you, to make the best of life changes, and still be the BEST person you can BE no matter where life takes you. For example for current 8th graders that are heading to High School next year and those that ARE 9-11th graders already, CONTINUE to SPREAD the passion of "excellence in everything you do": family, school, sports. That's what we do! Let RunStrong SHINE even more brightly this year and years to come! That is what I am planning on doing here at McFadden, making a positive change, spreading the love of hard work, passion, dedication. That is all of our jobs, to leave a lasting legacy wherever you go: High School, College, Beyond. It never ends.
Support Coach Jesse, keep core traditions, make new ones, be leaders, and believe this year will be GREAT because it will. I'll see you guys soon:)
I'm close by so if you like to visit, you know where I'll be:)
If you like to get a hold of me for anything, I'll be on the group REMIND app, or you can email me. Always. Much Love! I BELIEVE in all of YOU! Stay in touch :)
