This year, we recognize the contributions made by three members of the MSP Board of Trustees in particular as they transition to new roles.  Sean Cook is stepping down as Chair and will remain a Member and both Pete Hartman and Heather Rae are departing.

Thank you for your years of dedicated service to our community.

Sean Cook has been on the Board of Trustees for 7 years, serving as Treasurer and most recently as the Chair of the Board of Trustees.  We have been the fortunate beneficiary of Sean’s leadership and dedication to the Board.
