As Edythe Hatter-Williams, CEO at Capital Area Michigan Works! (CAMW!) stands outside the CAMW! building awaiting the end of her photo shoot, she casually opens the door for an unsuspecting patron pushing a stroller. The simple act speaks to her very nature as a sweet and humble woman. She notes several times in conversation how fortunate she has been to have received so many opportunities to better educate herself and share that education with others. This is the basis of her entire life.
Finally it’s here! That warm, sunny weather that we all have not-so-patiently been waiting for … the summer sun and fun always put me in a great mood. I mean, how can you not be happy when the sun is shining? I love being outdoors working in my flower gardens, playing with the kids and watching them ride their bikes in the driveway and of course, SWIMMING! My family spends most of the summer at my sister’s house. She has a pool, which means that my kids would like to live there if they could.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
They say that everything you need to know, you learned in Kindergarten. Although I believe that you learned some pretty valuable things at that precious age, like how to share, the alphabet, counting, creativity and other important skills, it sure can’t keep pace with today’s changing needs in the workplace. I mean, who would have thought back then we would need to understand tweeting or blogging?
WITH A CAPITAL EM
I remember what I wore my first day of classes at MSU.
Not much of an accomplishment since my weird party trick is remembering what I wore on any given occasion.
I remember biking through campus, carefully following the route my best friend’s boyfriend had mapped out for me. I remember what the halls smelled like. I remember being super sweaty (nerves and a late-August heat wave), I even remember keeping my eyes open for any potential husbands (after all, college is where you meet “the one” right?)
