Dear Tom Plantenberg and WAS Team,
Thank you for all of your great work to design, develop, market and deliver a great experience for young people in bringing Peace Through Understanding at WAS 2019 – The Promise and Perils of Social Media.
The Rotary Meeting yesterday was excellent. The opening ceremony last Saturday was a great kick-off to the week. Speaking with delegates at lunch validated delegate interest and learning. Walking among the displays yesterday and speaking with the delegates about their capstone projects was a wonderful experience. I found the delegates enthusiastic, insightful and eloquent. Their many different approaches to Social Media were creative and generally very well informed. I learned some new things in the process. I had not noticed in the past the presence of college recruiters at WAS – this was a nice touch. It appears that delegates will leave Waukesha and Carroll with broadened perspective on the world and new friends.
I know it was a team effort with the input and participation of many, many people – professional staff, counselors, senior staff, board members, and many others. Thank you all. You are an inspiration and you are making a difference. Kudos to all for a great year!
