Farewell Note

I just wanted to send a note of gratitude to the communities UWCK serves. You have made my job as Executive Director have purpose and meaning and will be forever grateful! Each community has a special heart and soul and your giving hearts have helped thousands of individuals have a better life. To the agencies UWCK serves and their staff, you are the true hero's of why our communities are so great! You are the most caring individuals and have been called to serve. To the UWCK staff and Board, I have gained such respect for your dedication not only to myself as a Director but to the mission of UWCK. You give your precious time freely and are the Gold standard in the community. Thank you for everyone that helped launched Dolly Parton's Imagination Library in 4 communities. Literacy is near and dear to my heart, and I will continue to finish the mission of getting DPIL in the Great Bend community to make this dream a reality. May you all continue to support UWCK, the Board and our community partners. May God bless you all and thank you for your unwavering support and love. Julie Bugner-Smith
