favorite LOTH memory

JB’s 30th Anniversary celebration has been my favorite memory so far at LOTH. It was so inspiring to see all of the individuals who shared in JB’s career milestones, and hear stories of 30 years of challenges, successes, fun and hard work! Everyone who shared in the celebration shared a unique message and it was inspiring to see just how much a leader can accomplish in 30 years!
