Good morning, this is Bill Scollon, SAA in Tennessee wishing all of you a bright and happy future.
It is with great joy and some trepidation that I will be retiring. My last day in the office is scheduled for March 29th. It has been a great ride surviving and even thriving under 3 administrations and two political parties. While I have enjoyed the daily challenges of the job I am looking forward to a relaxing 4-6 months of fishing, hiking and rehabbing old furniture (my rainy day hobby).
The 20 years spent working with my NCJA staff and you, my counterparts have, to a great extent, shaped who I am as a professional and as an individual. As a professional, you have inspired me. As a member of NCJA, I am comforted in the direction of the agency and the quality of its members. As a U.S. citizen I am thankful for your dedication and selfless service to your communities. I hope to stay in contact but if you don't hear from me again I want to leave you with the sincerest of thoughts.
Peace, Joy and Love to you all.
