Celebrating the Retirements of Bart Hadder and Sheila Flannigan

Bart-Sheila RetirementThis summer we honor two amazing people who have retired from the Trust. Bart Hadder served as a program director for 14 years, directed the Partners in Science program, and handled many of the K-12 and Christian Camping grants. Sheila Flannigan served first as receptionist, then as program assistant for 23 years, working in every facet of the grants program, coordinating and managing events, and contributing to many of the Trust's enrichment programs. We can't thank them enough for their years of outstanding work. If you would like to write a note of congratulations to either Bart or Sheila, please click here, and we will pass it along to them.
