The state society will also receive the Honor Roll Award. With the cancellation of the Magnolia Educational Treasures Meeting, additional details for board meetings and elections will be forthcoming.

The AMT magazine has taken on a new look, along with a new AMT website. If you have problems finding what you need, please feel free to email AMT at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have to remember, when there's change, there will be some issues, some good and some bad. We will miss the Annual Meeting this year, it was cancelled due to the virus, I was looking forward to going to New Mexico. Maybe there will be another opportunity again soon. COVID-19 has caused a lot of changes in our homes, workplaces, schools, places of worship, communities, cities, states, world. Since March 13, 2020, a new vocabulary has come about, such as Coronavirus, COVID-19, social distancing, pandemic, testing, non-testing, quarantine, isolation. six feet apart, and others. They are all about the pandemic. We have been in quarantine so long, it feels strange when you get a chance to go outside, but the fresh air is necessary for livelihood. The air inside gets to be stale after staying in for so long. If you, your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors have survived during this pandemic, it is a blessing. Because so many others cannot say that.
Hope everyone has a good and safe summer. Stay in pray for everybody.
