We Have the Determination to Impact The Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

One of the greatest gifts my parents gave to me is the deep sense of belonging here [in Wyoming], taking ownership, and searching for ways to enhance the quality of life for our citizens. Without my parents I would not have this privilege. I would not be doing this work.

Each day I wonder about the possibilities for a “better” Wyoming and through the work of the Foundation I have the opportunity to respond to the best of them. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Theodore Roosevelt said, “Far away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” I am living it.

Cheers Dad!

Mary Ellbogen Garland, President

We should all be concerned about the future because we will have to spend the rest of our lives there.
