This Is Us

Today, as we wrap up the accreditation site visit, we’ll be given a list of several things we must improve before our next accreditation visit. While it might be uncomfortable to hear some of those suggestions as they will be a reflection on my leadership, I know that’s part of the process and I’m ready for it because I know those suggestions will make us better.

During this accreditation visit and the weeks leading up to it, I’ve felt like Professor Robert Kelly. If you haven’t seen the video below and his recent experience, I’m so thrilled I get to share this with you. Truly, I’m honored.

I’ve watched this at least twenty times and it gets better each time. I’ve even read posts that analyze it frame-by-frame and I’ve watched the follow-up interview they did four days later.

The video truly is a masterpiece… about life— home, church, school, everywhere. In all those areas, we’re trying to do that best we can do, but sometimes life just happens. Not everything goes as perfectly as planned (just ask Andy Stewart about his ELEOT observation!).

If nothing else, preparing for this accreditation visit and completing the site visit has reminded me we’re not perfect— and that’s ok. We’re doing the best we can do, and we are constantly seeking ways to improve.

Thank you for making CAC great. I’ve been proud to show off and brag on our school this week… even though we’re not perfect (just like the Kelly family).
