Special to The SUN
The staff and board of Seeds of Learning enjoyed a luncheon hosted by Karen and Harris Bynum on Sunday, June 9.
The special occasion was a celebration of the 10th anniversary at Seeds of Learning for Lynne Bridges, executive director, and Lynn Moffett, administrative assistant and better known as “Miss M.”
The average employment for an executive director of a nonprofit is approximately three years. For Lynne Bridges to have been in that position at Seeds of Learning for 10 years is an amazing accomplishment. In addition, Lynne recently graduated with her bachelor’s degree in early education. She completed this amazing feat while guiding Seeds in its accreditation process, managing a staff of 14 and raising money through grants and fund-raisers to maintain this quality center for educating Pagosa tots. Miss M shared that, without Lynne’s tenacity and leadership, Seeds would have never become the center it is today.
Lynne said she has learned that, in 10 years, she did one thing right — and that was hiring Miss M. Lynne asked her to come and “help out” when she first started with Seeds and Miss M has stuck by Seeds for the past 10 years. Her ability to juggle many tasks and keep track of the financial details of a busy center is an incredible asset to the staff, the parents and the board of Seeds.
The party hosted by the Bynums included a meal that Cheryl Moore helped plan and prepare, champagne toasts and decadent chocolate cake.
The board presented Lynne Bridges with a gift to honor her recent graduation, and a wonderful time was had by all. Congratulations to Lynne and Miss M on 10 years of making an impact on young lives.
