President's message

July 26, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

I am grateful to serve as your President for the next two years and continue to uphold the mission and vision of our organization. It is our goal to now offer, once again, in person meetings for our members. It is important that we connect as colleagues and learn from one another’s experiences and ideas. We have persevered through these last two years navigating through this global pandemic, by providing comfort and ever changing information to our students, staff, and community.  Let’s continue to be leaders, role models and change agents! 

Joining the executive board of SCSNA has been a wonderful experience and has offered many opportunities to grow professionally and personally. Please consider volunteering on our board so we can continue to make our organization the best version of itself. I would like to thank the executive board, past and present, for all of their time and continued commitment. 

I look forward to seeing all of you at our next meeting. Best of luck to you this school year!

Thank you,

Jennifer Amponin, BSN, RN, CSN
