Thank You’s

From members of the DHHS GAINS (Girls Advancing in STEM) Club, after attending he national conference in New York:


“Thank you so much for making it possible for us to attend the GAINS Conference in New York. It was an unbelievable experience that I will never forget. We really appreciate your contributions because we would not have been able to go without your assistance….”


“The fantastic women I met at the 2018 GAINS conference taught me that I am good enough to create a research project or start my own website, all I have to do is just be fearless! Thank you so much for making this experience a reality for me….”


“If it were not for your immense generosity, I would not have been able to have the life-changing experience that I did … [A]fter being inspired countless times by the incredible women I met, I am confident that my future is in STEM, and that I can truly make a difference in the field….”

“On behalf of the DHHS sailing team, thank you to all the friends and family that generously supported the many bake sales, Grant writing and the GoFundMe efforts to raise money for new sails. Thank you to the Madison Foundation for their generous support. Today some of the team went to the North Sails loft to pick up 6 sets of beautiful new sails and have a tour of the loft. Congrats to the kids! The sails will be happy in our basement until the kids (believe it or not) hit the water in a few short months.”
