Meeting with Senator Simpson was beyond thrilling! I have never been able to engage so fully with tax reform and fiscal change. However, he offered up many words of wisdom, including, “What goes up must come down. Do not ever make the mistake of getting too full of yourself”. This is what I enjoyed most, his willingness to share advice that can be translated into any career field and applied widely throughout life.
As a whole, the evening was thoroughly wonderful from start to finish. Being able to speak and dine with the presidents and employees of companies I so much admire was an opportunity for which I will forever be grateful. My presentation to the guests regarding the importance of scholarships was more positively received than I could have ever dreamed. From the elegant reception to the flawless dinner and engaging speakers, it was a night I will always remember.
