The Perspective – “Welcome Back Students and Educators, Part 2” October – November 2021 Edition

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”

  • Malcolm X

As we spoke to you about education last month, in this edition we will look briefly at its importance in our industry. Municipal Utility Districts, or as you have come to know them, MUD’s, provide excellent opportunities in the field of math and science. How we care for our environment is equally important in the many responsibilities that are dealt with daily by dedicated men and women. Water being the most precious natural resource and as well a very versatile one, we tip our hat to their immense and sometimes tedious tasks. Many Educators will spend hours, months, and even years preparing students to take on the role of becoming professionals and Scientists. The many aspects in which their expertise is invaluable to communities, humanity, environment, and the economy is evident in how we use and conserve water, construct and build infrastructure, maintain communities, and as well keep our economy striving.

The two most important persons for MUD’s daily operational functions, are the Licensed Operator and the Licensed Engineer. In these highly intense and yet rewarding professions, both work countless hours to ensure our facilities are in good standard. Thus, the two must work hand and hand, meaning inseparable, constantly communicating. They consist of a Team of other trained and highly qualified persons, part of a network of connecting resources with checks and balances to be sure everyone is on the same page. On behalf of the Board, we thank them for their commitment, and all our Consultant’s and Vendors who assist in providing our quality of life.

With great appreciation for the many men and women who educate our young during the early years, we thank you. We will also acknowledge our Educators at the post-secondary (tertiary)   levels, including technical schools for your dedication in the spirit of learning. As we encourage all youngsters to take interest in Math and Science. Next time on “The Perspective,” we Bundle Up for the Winter.

Be safe.
