A Letter from Gail Beck, upon her retirement:
With every New Year, many of us experience the nostalgia of looking back over the previous year (or years) and the anticipation of looking forward to what is ahead. This year, for me, these feelings are intensified. After a little over twenty-six years as Executive Director of Tri-Town Youth Services, I am retiring in mid-January of 2017. This, of course, marks a personal transition for me as well as a transition for our agency. I am confident that the agency and I will thrive!
Tri-Town’s Parent Resource Coordinator, Allison Abramson, will continue that role while she also takes on the role of Executive Director. We have spent much time together in preparation for this moment. The agency will be in very capable hands.
As for me, personally, I grew up in Essex, attended local schools, and was graduated from Valley Regional High School (when it housed grades 7-12). Having strong roots here was part of the appeal when I applied for the position at Tri-Town. Hired in 1990, I was the agency’s third ED in its six years of existence. My goals included staying on for a while to provide stability to the agency. I was also determined to ensure credibility always to follow through with whatever we purported to do. I feel honored to have had productive, trusting, collaborative relationships with many individuals and organizations in our three communities. I am grateful for the support of staff members, board members, local community members and colleagues from out of town over the years. I am proud that with such support, Tri-Town has grown and thrived over the years.
My personal transition involves letting go of much in the tri-town area, while embracing more unscheduled time and more time to share with family and friends.
With deep and heartfelt thanks, I bid you Adieu!
