Jane Gordon - Retiring After 25 Years

Jane Gordon Is Special Honeree at LQ's 34th Birthday Luncheon

At a very special luncheon program at Adventures in Learning on October 7, Jane Gordon was recognized for her twenty-five years of service to LifeQuest. Since her hiring as office manager in 1990, Jane has been instrumental in so many ways in the growth and success of LifeQuest in all its facets. A simple measure of that success and Jane's impact, not to mention that of the AIL Coordinating Committee, is that the Fall 2015 Adventures in Learning session has experienced one of our highest-ever participation rates with a total of 632 enrolled.
