     It has been such a pleasure to serve as the USNA President for the 2020-21 school year. While I have struggled at times to keep my head above the water with the workload of this year, the USNA membership has not ceased to amaze me! I SEE our Utah School Nurses! You have all risen to the unique challenges of this school year with dedication, commitment, and a professionalism that is admirable!

    

Our USNA Board members have met monthly and have shared challenges and success from throughout the state. This group of school nurses work hard for the advocacy and wellbeing of Utah’s children, school staff, and in our communities. They have gone beyond what is required and I appreciate each of them so much!

    

Flexibility has been essential this year. Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we have made changes to the USNA Spring Conference. Our conference committee has worked hard to provide a wonderful virtual experience that will be held on May 7th.

    

Thank you for this opportunity to serve you! I look forward to continuing to serve on the USNA board in one capacity or another. I also encourage you to get involved with USNA! It is a wonderful experience to be a part of such a great organization!
