The news was released today that FIRST senior management has decided to update my title to remove the ‘Acting’ part, so now I’m Director of FRC.
I want to thank the incredible FRC staff for their over-the-top support throughout the last year. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, and again, FIRST isn’t just a job to them, it’s in their hearts. They’re the best.
I also want to thank the rest of the FIRST staff for all they’ve done in support of the FRC Program and in support of me personally. You may not know them, and may never know them, but they put everything they have into delivering the best possible experience for all FRC participants.
Finally, I want to thank all the teams and volunteers for their kind comments and support, in person, in emails, and on Chief Delphi. It’s not possible for me to put into words what you mean to me. Let’s keep working together to make a great program even better.
I’m moved, and humbled. I still can’t believe I get to do something that brings me such joy for a living. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
