Ballard Leaves Discovery Academy
August 28, 2006
Dear friends and colleagues;
I am writing to inform you all of some significant developments
and changes that have recently occurred. As many of you know, I have
been on a temporary leave of absence from my position, and as of
August 23, 2006, I have officially resigned as Director of Admissions
at Discovery Academy. I have had several inquiries from people with
concern that this change has been brought about by health issues.
I am thrilled to report that I am still in remission with no signs
of recurrence! Please know of my gratitude for the many "well-wishes" and
the continued support I have received…
My decision for departure from Discovery Academy was met with tremendous
support from the owners and board of directors of the school. I have
thoroughly enjoyed my 17 + years working for this organization; and
particularly appreciate the experiences I have had working for the
RedCliff Ascent ownership for the past 3 years. I have been proud
to represent Discovery Academy, and will hope to continue to support
them in their future successes helping the clients they serve.
I am looking forward to future opportunities for professional and
personal growth, and potential new opportunities in this industry
when the time is right.
The owners and board of directors will be formally introducing my
replacement, Mari Allman. (Many of you may already know her from
your visits at Discovery Ranch.) I have complete confidence that
parents and professionals will enjoy working with Mari, and will
continue to be satisfied with the services and treatment provided
by Discovery Academy and it's wonderful staff.
As always, please feel free to contact me directly with any questions
or comments. I'd love to hear from you!
