WE DID IT!!!
I just wanted to let you know that we have received correspondence from Kathryn Laurin, President of Camosun College. She has advised us that the proposed financial model which was submitted by the VCM has been accepted, in principal, and has been included in Camosun’s 2014/2015 operating budget which will be brought to the Camosun Board for approval on Monday, May 5th.
She also acknowledges that this has been a challenging time for both organizations and looks forward to working with us to identify additional opportunities through which we can further strengthen our partnership and continue to work together.
I believe this looks very promising and we will, of course, welcome the opportunity to work with Camosun to continue to find creative solutions to help achieve long term sustainability.
I also want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your loyal and valued support. Your passionate belief in the power of music education is most definitely helping us “Keep the Music Playing”!
Thank you all so much for your support of our education, our music, & the arts as a whole. We could not have pulled it off without the public backing us. Our gratitude is endless.
I feel so honoured to be associated with the steadfast group of colleagues & faculty that makes up the VCM-Camosun music programs. I am overjoyed that future students will have the same opportunity for tremendous growth that I’ve had. It truly is a gift that has changed my life & made me not only a better musician, but a better human being.
I have other really good news, too. Stay tuned!
