Milton's Monday Message 

 

 Champions in Education   April 30, 2018  

At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal.  You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.

~ Barbara Bush
