Today, Maureen Eccleston leaves the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism to accept a position with the Anne E. Casey Foundation. I am so happy for her, but I can’t hide how much she will be missed. Smart, thoughtful, crazy good planner, amazing trainer, and hilarious are just a few words to describe Maureen, but the word I choose is leader. Maureen’s leadership has meant so much to Volunteer Maryland and service around the State; it is hard to see her go. I have been lucky to have known Maureen as a colleague and a boss, and in both instances each day I learned, was challenged (in the best possible ways) and laughed a lot. I know I am better for knowing and working with her, and can’t wait to see what happens next.
Thanks for everything, Maureen. Especially the sweet photo jumping skills :).
