Re: ?AU Profiles: DeAnne Csada? by Christina M. Frey, v18 i12 (2010-03-26)

Dear Editor,

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!

Shirley Gaura
