We both know that many kids and their parents have passed through your office over the years. You SHOULD know all of them have been changed by their Mill Springs experience.You, the teachers, staff and coaches all watch over, advise, comfort, and educate, whole families as their kids run through the buildings and halls of this school.
The teachers and coaches are regularly thanked for their efforts. We are truly thankful that the "Village" that is the MSA community for encouraging, pushing, prodding, poking and caring about our son as they guided him through anxiety, ADD, LD issues, girls, life lessons, sports and so much more. MSA has helped to mold him into the caring, charming, young man of which HE can be proud.
All of this is a prelude to a huge THANK YOU for some words you asked me to relay to him this semester at Georgia Southern. Anxiety was getting the best of him (and me). You said you had no doubts about him because of what you had seen him do, on the baseball field. You asked me to tell him that not everyone could be a catcher. He had the ability to dig deep down to accomplish the goal he wanted for himself and his teammates. I did relay that message in an anxiety filled phone call that night.
THE POINT? Weeks later I was telling him how proud we were of this semester's grades (A's and B's) and of his hard work and courage to even go back to school. When I asked him what he thought was different this year. He said he didn't know but somehow when he heard what you said about the baseball field everything just clicked into place.
Your teachers gave him knowledge and tools he needed, but YOU made it click for him! THANK YOU THANK YOU. As parents we will be forever thankful for Mill Springs Academy and for both Tweetie's and your vision. You have made our family better, stronger, and helped our son find his way.
Wishing you a Peaceful New Year.
