The 16th Joint South Dakota Math & Science Conference is behind us but not the learning that brought us together that weekend! If you did not have the chance to participate this year, we will be waiting for you in 2009. The conference was a huge success not only in attendance but also in the quality and variety of sessions. Once again we were thankful for the new facility. Nobody had to walk around in this cold weather.
    Congratulations to Mark Farrand for his Friend of Science Award: Making the Difference and Marcy Farrand her award for Excellence.
    Finally, for the SDSTA officers, thank you for your hard work, late meetings at the conference and your dedication to our association. Without all of you, it would not be possible. You are the best! It was a pleasure to be the president of this great association for the last two years.
    Enjoy the spring weather with its many surprises, warm and snowy sometimes but a time of renewal.

"No matter what happens, keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you find that you have accomplished a purpose - not the one you began with perhaps, but one you will be glad to remember."
