Well done, Karen!
Dr. Seuss once aptly wrote, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." Working for a not for profit organization comes with a lot of ups and downs. A lot of blood, sweat and tears goes into making sure that it trundles on under any circumstance. Why? Because the person at the helm is passionate and believes a 110% in what they are doing. They surround themselves in a team of believers and trudge on. The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts does just that after some really big highs and some not so great moments in the past few years. The person who believes in it so much? Karen Hatcher. Our fearless leader made the front page of The Guardian this weekend! Karen has been at the wheel of the College for just over a year. What a year it's been! The College has taken off under her watchful eye and thoughtful guidance. Its trajectory is now up and she's not looking back!
Not only is the College privileged to have such a fantastic person in charge but with the largely female demographic of the College, it's nice to have such a positive female role model to look up to. Karen is also one of the newest members of the College of Piping Grade Five band where she has already established herself as a role model to all of the other players. Her experience in life and piping is second to none!

The College is very proud of Karen and her achievements! We're all very excited for the future of the College with such an amazing mentor, leader and person in charge! Well done, Karen!
