We were all given copies of the Annual Report and herein lies my moment of fame. Back in August Diane Berge and I were interviewed by Krysta from Covenant Communications--she even taped the interview! She decided to center the story about SWD around my mother's airplane dream and myself as now co-chair of SWD. I had an honest to goodness photo shoot in early September, complete with screens, bright lights, multiple shots, fussing with the props, etc.--I felt like a super model!! Well, okay not quite!! Hahaha!! And I engaged in multiple emails with Krysta over the story. As she approaches writing from a journalism perspective--corporate journalism to be precise, and I approach writing from an academic perspective, you can imagine we had some differences!! Like when she ascribed to me a quotation that Diane had made--um, that's plagiarism!! Also I don't like inaccuracies in numbers, dates, stuff like that. I'm sure she thought I was a real pain, but she graciously made the corrections.
I scanned the page from the report, so it's not great quality, but you will get the gist of it--I hope. I offered to sign autographs after the meeting, but no one took me up on that!!! Hahahaha!!
I really like the story because fulfilling that dream with my mother will always be something I'll cherish for the rest of my life.
