Happy Thanksgiving from CTN

In this season of gratitude, we want to express our deepest thanks to each member of our CTN Familia. Your collective efforts contribute to the transformative power of education, making a lasting impact on individuals and, by extension, our society. Together, we are not just an organization; we are a family united by a common purpose – to ignite the flame of knowledge and illuminate the path to a brighter future.

As we pause to reflect on the spirit of Thanksgiving, our heart swells with gratitude for the remarkable individuals who make up our dedicated community. To the Catch The Next Staff Members, whose tireless efforts behind the scenes ensure the seamless operation of our organization, thank you. Your commitment and hard work lay the foundation for our success, and your passion for our mission is evident in every task you undertake.

Your strategic vision, leap of faith to be part of our community of practice and leadership inspire confidence, driving Catch The Next to new heights. Your belief in the power of education as a force for positive change is a beacon guiding us forward.

A genuine thank you to our Peer Mentors, a distinguished group comprising scholars, authors, and community leaders, whose unwavering commitment has played an instrumental role in guiding CTN to new heights. Their wisdom, expertise, and passion have not only enriched CTN’s endeavors but have also served as a beacon of inspiration for all. Additionally, we express our sincere appreciation to our CTN Leadership Fellows for their dedication and vision. We are immensely grateful to our esteemed funders, the Meadows Foundation, The Communities Foundation of Texas, and the Anne Kleberg Foundation, whose generous support has been the cornerstone of our achievements. Your belief in our mission has empowered us to make a lasting impact, and for that, we are truly thankful.
