Happy Thanksgiving

November 25th, 2015

Thankful (adjective):  grateful and appreciative

We found many different definitions of the word “thankful” thanks to our expansive dictionary otherwise known as the world wide web, however, the two simple words above we think are the best…grateful and appreciative.

We can all find many things to be grateful and appreciative for.  Sometimes what we think of is huge and glaringly obvious and other times they can be small and easily overlooked.  Either way everyone has something they can be thankful for.

Take a moment today, tomorrow, every day to look at what you can be thankful for – the list will grow the harder you look.  Happy Thanksgiving from all of us to all of you:)

Meet Suzanne…

We are excited to have Suzanne Carpenter-Franck join our Project Lift team as the Program Coordinator for Caroline Street and Dorothy Nolan Elementary Schools.  Suzanne graduated from the State University of New York at Potsdam with a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communications. She later graduated from The College of Saint Rose with a Master’s of Science in Education for School Counseling. She has worked in the Human Service field for the past ten years; working herself up at CAPTAIN Youth & Family Services as Lead Case Manager to Shelter Administrator. Suzanne is also an Alumni of Leadership Saratoga, Class of 2014 and is the Vice President of The Board of Trustees for the NYS Military Museum. Suzanne is an active member of the community who strives to donate her time and energy to making a difference.

Suzanne has shown herself to be an asset to the program already and we couldn’t be happier to have her on staff.  The experience and compassion she brings to our program is truly remarkable.
