From the President/CEO: 3 Things I’m Looking Forward to in 2019

As we enter 2019 – a new year and a fresh start – I find myself looking back in order to look forward. I can’t help but think of how far An Achievable Dream has come over 26 years. For 22 of those years, I have worked with An Achievable Dream in various roles, so as we look to the future, I am inspired by the history of the organization and the legacy of those who lead us this far. We are able to look forward only because An Achievable Dream has firm roots thanks to the hard work of an amazing team over the course of many years, and I’m so thankful to be part of it.

One exciting change you will notice soon is a beautiful new, full-color edition of Achievements, made possible by our Achievements sponsors, Multi-Print, Inc. and Oyster Pointer. We are excited to continue bringing you the latest news of An Achievable Dream – now in vibrant color!

In 2019, I’m looking forward to:

Connecting with YOU – our supporters, corporate sponsors, community partners, board members, and more. You are our FAMILY!  

Growing the Dream. We are continually working to expand the program in sustainable ways, and I’m excited for future initiatives that will impact even more deserving young, students who have endless potential!

Celebrating success. At An Achievable Dream, we work hard and we play hard. Our incredibly dedicated teachers and staff live “the Dream” day-in and day-out, and we believe in a culture that celebrates that dedication! And most importantly, as our amazing Dreamers continue to achieve incredible things, we will continue to celebrate – and share that success with you!

2018 was a wonderful year, and I’m looking forward to 2019 with excitement and anticipation for all the great things to come and the dreams yet to be achieved. Thank you for the role you play in making dreams a reality for nearly 2,000 Dreamers. I am endlessly thankful for you.


Lee Vreeland, Ed.D.
