(For those of you who missed the reading of Mrs. Libby's letter at the assembly yesterday afternoon, here is the letter.)
Dear Ladies of Carondelet,
Every time I make a major change, I am firmly convinced that God is leading me where I need to go. I live by the credo that God is in charge. And right now I feel a need to spend time with my family and take a rest after nearly 40 straight years of working with little break!
Today I leave my job as principal of Carondelet, and while I am sad, my heart is somewhat lightened by leaving you in such good hands … In the hands of our President Bonnie Cotter, our two Assistant Principals, Pam Seto and Jessica Mix, and, of course, the wonderful faculty and staff at CHS.
I cannot begin to thank all of you for being … well… just for being yourselves. YOU are wonderful young women with so much heart, intelligence and promise. I will miss you more than you can know. I would be telling you all of this in person, but I know that if I stand before you it will be even harder to step away. And it is time for me to step towards time with my family, and onward to all the great things God has planned for this next phase of my life.
Keep working, playing, laughing, crying, and being true to who you are, even when that may not be the easiest thing to do! You are remarkable young women who truly make a difference in this world!
Love and blessings,
