tribute to a special lady…

A Love and Logic Tribute to a Very Special Lady I learned about Judy Vann from Karen Gustafson, a facilitator of a Love and Logic® curriculum in Omaha, Nebraska. She sang the praises of this wonderful lady while driving me to our seminar in Elkhorn, Nebraska. Here is what Karen shared with me: Our collaboration began several years ago after Judy's son, a pediatrician, and his wife, attended one of our classes. They have been sold on the Love and Logic approach ever since. Judy, our donor, saw how her grandchildren were being parented and LOVED it. She approached me, since I am the Director of Jewish Family Service, and together we decided to set up a $10,000 donation as a matching grant program for schools and agencies who wished to have the class brought to them. In addition, Judy's fund, the "Howard and Judy Vann Family Education Fund," allows us to offer a sliding fee for ANYONE in the Omaha community who wishes to take the class. Judy received a report from me at the end of our budget year informing her of the location where her grant was utilized and the remaining dollar amount in her fund. She was thrilled with its use and donated a second $10,000. For the past nine years, the "Howard and Judy Vann Family Education Fund" has allowed Jewish Family Service to teach two classes every year, one in the spring and one in the fall. For the past four years, the fund has sponsored classes at the following Omaha Public Schools: Liberty Elementary School, Northwest High School, Columbian Elementary School, Hartman Elementary School, and Kellom Elementary School. In addition, the fund sponsored classes at St. Bernadette Catholic School, Presbyterian Church of the Master, Friedel Jewish Academy, Beth El Synagogue, Temple Israel Synagogue, Beth Israel Synagogue, and Pennie Z. Davis Child Development Center. Judy Vann, I hope you are reading this special "tip of the hat" from all of us at Love and Logic Institute, Inc. You have changed a lot of lives through your generosity. Thank you for your support! Our goal is to help as many families as possible. If this is a benefit, forward it to a friend. Jim Fay
