SHPE San Diego's President Corner

Hola!!! We are beginning to see a light out of this dark tunnel... COVID is not going away from what information we all hear so we must learn from our SHPE core values:  FAMILIA, SERVICE, EDUCATION & RESILIENCE!!

This time let's focus on our RESILENCE & FAMILIA core values!!!

We are resilient because despite all the hardships we have been dealing with so far, strength has been within us one way or another.  We definitely have shown ourselves that we endure and support each other in many ways.  As March 2022 comes we begin to see signs of hope with the arrival of spring!!

That sense of Familia for all of us comes in many ways and you should all know that SHPEfamilia is here for you.  Not going to sugar coat it....we do argue, disagree and have difference of opinion.... BUT...when we need support someone is always there to lend a helping hand "all you need to do is ask!!"


Once again, we do need your help and support to continue moving forward as the strong organization that we have always been. I know that "zoomitis" is a real thing but at the moment is the best and safest method that we have to meet and be together.
