Every year, it seems, the Guild finds new ways to live up to their motto, "parents are the strength," and this group is no different.

“Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results…" I keep this mantra in mind whenever I'm acting in a position of leadership. If something isn't working, change strategies.”
