Happy Spring from MPSEOC | Montana Colleges!
Thank you for your continued support and collaboration to help keep Montana education connected! MPSEOC is celebrating its 29th year of collaboration across Montana, and we are so proud to call you our members! As we ended 2015 and begin 2016, we just wanted to share the many highlights and amazing efforts we accomplished as a Montana team! We also have outlined a few important updates and announcements in this newsletter.
As another year of service to Montana and students begins, we are excited to work with you and your great offices once again! MPSEOC appreciates you and your teams for all your good work in serving our Montana students. Together we are able to accomplish so much more, and we are excited for another year to collaborate with each of you in this great statewide mission.
We are always seeking your feedback to help our organization grow strong into the future. Please share your thoughts on how we may better work with you and your teams, as well as, any new, innovative ideas you might have for us to make 2016 the best year yet.
Wishing you a very happy start to spring. We are excited for 2016 with all of you!
Many, many thanks to you!
