1. M. C. has all of the photos from 2012 up again! Well, there’s a few exceptions I have to figure out, but it’s MOSTLY finished!
2. The other night, former employees of Girl Scout National Center West met and shared supper with our former boss. There’s a few more miles under our belts, but our smiles haven’t dimmed!
3. I wrote this dedication on my facebook page… but I felt like I should share it here. Rest in peace, Dr. Strausner…
This man made a difference in my life and in my mother’s. Mom worked for Dr. Strausner as a secretary in Student Personnel where he was a counselor. As as kid, I babysat his girls, sold him Girl Scout cookies, and cried on his shoulder when my dad fought and lost to cancer. When he became president of CC, mom went back to work for him as his secretary once again. He championed me through arguments with UW over transfer of credits, and there was no better man to have on your side than Dr. Strausner. He was always cheerful and inquisitive of my new life on a ranch near Ten Sleep. He watched my children grow and was happy to see my daughter get her 4 year degree on the CC campus. Finally, he gave my mother’s eulogy. It wasn’t easy for him, I’m sure. He had humble beginnings, but oh, my, how far you came! And, more importantly, how far you helped others go! Peace to you, Marcia, and your girls and their families.
