I enjoyed learning to public speak and develop leadership skills that I use in my profession on a daily basis. My best memories where being a State officer in 1985-86. All of the activities that we participated in and the way we grew as a team. After I gave my retirement speech, my Dad saying that he was amazed and proud of my accomplishments.
