A Lifetime For Learning
We extend so much energy in our lifetime to acquire wealth and maintain health that we often forget why we are alive in the first place. Newspaper, television, magazine, radio and internet content is so diverse that we can spend our entire lives examining options others want us to consider. The closer we come to the end of our days on earth we become aware that we are here to learn from our life experiences and then share the deepest truths with our family and society. Our words and actions are the method for revealing who, what, when and where we have learned with others.
Peace Arch City school superintendent Dr. Mary Lynne Derrington loves being a life long learner. Her own higher education path included three diverse colleges: Southern Illinois for her bachelor diploma, Portland State for a masters degree and the University of Washington for doctoral credentials. In her next growth of work and service she will return to full time teaching in the school administration program at Western Washington University. Mary Lynne will also write research papers while she aspires to be truly inspirational, like Sister Thea, her 8th grade teacher and principal.
When we reach out and embrace our neighbors we see pictures that enhance everyday life in our own international community.
