“I’d like to give special thanks to those sitting in the audience tonight, for giving me a second home. I think it’s amazing how much can be done when people come together to make a difference. I understand that very well, being one of the many products of your efforts, contributions and support to this amazing organization.” – Renel Saint Jour
“The arc of my life was crafted from the minute I got off the yellow school bus. The Manice Education Center not only gave me the tools to be a steward of the earth, but the ability to shed the armor of my past experiences and craft my future.” – Cynthia Mondesir
“As a scientist, I am always interested in cause and effect. And while we never know with certainty how our past experiences impact affect our present self, there really is no question in my mind that my success in my career and my success in life in general are directly attributed to the time I spent at Manice.” – Laura Blake
And our Christodora students shared their wilderness and scientific knowledge with our lovely guests.
