  1. A Tribute to Sanette Nowers
    How does one express the amazing essence and spirit of Sanette Nowers, her selfless generosity, uncompromising belief in all that is good and her unwavering commitment to Quality Education! Words, even the very best of words, cannot pay tribute or truly capture the sense of loss that we are all feeling today.
    The loss is there, it is tangible and real within everyone…but Sanette Nowers exemplified life, love, laughter and an irrepressible belief and faith in seeing the best in everything…even loss.
    And so today we honour her, by profoundly feeling and expressing our loss, but also by remembering our Director, Our Mam, Our Ms. N, MCED – an amazing person who has played a unique and special role in all our lives!
    We’ll remember you with all your special nuances and our memories from all the days gone before that we were privileged to share with you…
    Today we’ll grieve for you, and cry for you and even smile because of you…
    And in all the tomorrows we’ll feel you – gone in some ways, but your presence ever near.
    Sorrow fills our hearts this sad moment, a sorrow that is deep and personal. Sanette Nowers has silently closed the door of life and departed from us. Our lives will be empty in the areas that she had brightened for us.
    Albert Einstein said, “The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.” In one word, Sanette was a woman who gave. She gave much to her work! Here was a life that exemplified brilliance…a life that inspired emulation…a life that burned so that others’ paths were lit.
    In her career as District Director of Metro Central, she worked with integrity and energy. By her death all the people who knew her will miss a highly intelligent, vibrant individual with a rare friendliness and charm of personality. Our sorrow is lessened only slightly with the comforting thought that we had the privilege to know her.
    Go well…stay well…always….my Director, my mentor, my friend
