President's Corner
A Message From Dr. Teresa Garate

Dear Anixter Center Friends, Colleagues and Supporters:

It is with great excitement that I write the first letter to be included in our new Quarterly Newsletter. Now that I have been at the helm of this amazing organization for over six months, I am even more excited than when I started. Those of you who know me, know that I am a touchy feely person so amidst our clients I am in good company.
