Re: ?AU Profiles: DeAnne Csada? by Christina M. Frey, v18 i12 (2010-03-26)
I want to commend you for including the article about my god-daughter, DeAnne Csada, in your magazine.
The article truly represents the goal-orientation that DeAnne has had throughout her childhood and adult life. She enthusiastically takes on life’s challenges and is committed to multi-tasking, while utilizing her outstanding organizational skills. She was able to balance being a great home-maker, wife, and mother of four youngsters, part-time employee, and university student all at the same time! This is quite an accomplishment, and I am excited that you recognized her efforts in this way.
I have long been a proponent of Athabasca University, since a lifelong friend of mine, Dr. Dominique Abrioux, was its president. Over the years, I referred many young people to the distance education programs at AU, as I felt strongly that it met a critical niche to educate adults at each individual’s pace and within personalized timeframes. Being a school administrator and educator myself, I felt that the advantages offered through your diversified programs were ones that met the new realities of education for the twenty-first century.
I offer my heartiest congratulations to DeAnne and her family, and to Athabasca University, for ensuring that she and so many others can attain their educational dreams through your excellent programs!
