Why a Bridge?
Introduction by Anne Miller, Executive Directory
When my son was three, someone asked him what his grandfather did at work. My father, a college president, was amused by Dylan’s confident reply, “He builds bridges.”
Through the eyes of a child, I saw the essence of my father’s work was connecting students to opportunities and extending resources to serve the community. Building bridges also describes the work we do at TEEG.
The similarities are endless. Bridges provide a safe passage between where we are and where we want to be as solid structures with fixed foundations or flexible pathways that adjust to changing circumstances, they span time and distance to extend connections and join forces.
At TEEG, our staff members are keystone supports, grounded and strong. Our board members are the arches that allow us to reach deeper into the communities we serve. And, like all essential infrastructure that requires upkeep, TEEG bridges are maintained through the generosity of volunteers and donors.
Everyone has a place as a builder, traveler, or guide. As you read Bridging Connections, where do you fit in? We welcome you to join us in our mission to make a difference.
