like to come forward. 00:13:47
This is exciting to see. 00:13:55
We did leave somebody to answer the phone. 00:13:58
Why you guys are rocking up here. I'm going to go ahead and read this proclamation in Okay. 00:14:04
And whereas the theme for National Public Health Week 2024, We Are All Public Health emphasizes the collective responsibility and 00:15:17
interconnectedness of individuals, families, organizations, and governments in creating healthier communities. Now, therefore, be 00:15:23

Week, the Board encourages all residents to join and recognize the importance of public health and to participate in activities 00:15:34
and initiatives. 00:15:40
Into promoting health and Wellness in our community. Signed by all 5 Commissioners. 00:15:47
Jason, thank you Sir. This is a great group of people to work with and it's it's great to be able to recognize them at National 00:15:58
Public Health Week. Just a few quick words. 00:16:04
Many Warren County residents don't. 00:16:11
Interact directly with our department, but that doesn't mean that they don't benefit from the programs that our department offers. 00:16:13
The programs and services that we provide are intended to protect the public health of all residents of Weld County. While we may 00:16:20
focus on an individual in the case of immunizations or disease investigations, those services are intended to again protect the 00:16:27
public health of the entire county. Some of the services that we provide and and you had a good list. 00:16:34
Immunizations, disease investigations, chronic disease prevention such as cardiac, cardiovascular disease. 00:16:42
Food safety inspections, of course, in restaurants. 00:16:51
These investigations red exposure investigations primarily in children. 00:16:54
Laboratory services, more quality drinking and wastewater, biosolids and septic application, diabetes training and education, 00:17:00
substance abuse prevention, healthy eating and nutritional education, household hazardous waste disposal, and many more that that 00:17:08
probably constitutes 10 or 15% of the entire span of programs that we offer, but those are some of the main ones. 00:17:16
And again, all of these programs, whether we directly serve individuals, individual residents of our county, part of those 00:17:25
services are designed to protect the overall public health of well County. 00:17:31
I'm proud to work with this group of employees. It is I've been here I believe 14 months now. We have an outstanding team of 00:17:38
employees in our health department's. 00:17:43
The skill sets that they have serve our community well and they probably have many opportunities to work elsewhere. Thank you for 00:17:50
choosing to work at Weld County. 00:17:56
Thank you. Thank you. 00:18:02
Did you have anything to add to the group? Oh, absolutely. I have to tell you, it's just been an honor to be the coordinator with 00:18:09
Jason to hear all the programs that you do provide. It's just it's overwhelming because you can't comprehend all that you do for 00:18:16
our citizens of Well County And working with Sean and Dan and and Jason, like I said, you guys just rocked. And I just want to say 00:18:23
a year ago I would see Jason out on the trail and. 00:18:30
It's been a year that I've been putting 10,000 steps on my calendar and I would say just that little spark of inspiration that you 00:18:37
gave me, I've done it for a whole year now. So thank you so much. 00:18:44
Excuse me, I just want to, I just want to say thank you all you guys as well and it truly was, it truly wasn't to meet with you 00:18:53
weekly all of last year. Jason, you know you always, you always when you hire somebody new you wanted to forget the right guy. 00:19:00
Well, trust me people we've got the right guy. 00:19:06
You've done a fantastic job. I'm so proud of what you've done, where you're at in our health department and and when we say you 00:19:13
know it's not the individual people, you say it's the overall health of the citizens world county and that's absolutely what our 00:19:18
health department is about. So thank you guys for what you do every day. 00:19:22
Seriously. Yes. I'm not had the Opportunity Channel briefing yet, but I will say all your staff, they do this because they care. 00:19:28
And they care about people and they care about Weld County. And I just want to thank you all for doing everything you can do. And 00:19:37
you listed awesome things I didn't even know about, like the house household waste. I also always investigation there's probably 00:19:42
like 100 things that you probably do to make sure that Weldon County is is safe for everyone. So I just want to thank you so much 00:19:47
again for your heart. 00:19:52
In your heart of service especially, and then treating the rest of our residents like family. 00:19:58
Jason, you've done an excellent job here and I just want to come in the whole team and say thank you. And with that, we'd love to 00:20:36
get a picture with everybody up front here. So congratulations. 00:20:41
We definitely. 00:20:47
People in the back. Sure people. And we may if you you can cut a. 00:20:54
Great. Maybe 3 lines if somebody. 00:21:04
Here from where Melanie is and if all of you can kind of move out in the front and if you have the ability to maybe take a knee. 00:21:29
Come on, don't be afraid. 00:21:39
Normally don't understand that new more people, few more people. 00:21:44
It's getting a little closer. 00:21:50
Couple of year after in front. 00:21:54
All right. The two of you to move in as well. 00:21:58
All right. And 123. 00:22:09
And one more. 00:22:14
Thank you very much. 00:22:17
We still never did get a chance to chat so. 00:22:26
Thank you. 00:22:31
Oh. 00:22:36
OK. Thank you very much. Public Health, we appreciate you. 00:22:54
Item number two is our Community College month. I think we may have a few people from AIM here. Is that correct? Come on up 00:22:58
please. 00:23:02
While you guys are coming on up, I'll go ahead and read our proclamation. It's Community College Month, April 2024. Whereas Ames 00:23:10
Community College plays a vital role in shaping the future of Northern Colorado and its economy by providing high quality 00:23:16
education and training to students of all backgrounds and ages. And whereas Ames Community College continues to foster equitable 00:23:23
access to keeping colleges affordable as possible, providing access to a college education. 00:23:29
2024 Be known as Community College Month, signed by all 5 county commissioners. 00:24:42
Good morning. It's a great day to be at. 00:24:53
So thank you so much for recognizing and Community College in this way. 00:24:57
We are all very, very proud to serve our community through higher education at Ames Community College. And today we have, we have 00:25:02
students, we have faculty, we have staff, we have administrators, we have a board member, Gino, who is here to to just celebrate 00:25:10
together. As many of you know, we just completed a five year strategic plan this year we've been. 00:25:17
Crafting our next three-year Strategic Plan, and I'll give you a little peek inside to what's kind of coming. 00:25:26
There's a few big projects that we're looking toward and very excited about. One of them that I know you've heard about is the 00:25:33
Ames Workforce Innovation Center. We're lovingly call a a Wick. It's going to be our Innovation Center incubator and we're hoping 00:25:39
that Alquist is going to be the. 00:25:44
Anchor tenant there and we'll see how also that serves our community. We also the board just approved last fall airframe and power 00:25:51
plant maintenance program that will round out the whole aviation ecosystem and we're looking at that to be part of our flight 00:25:59
training center area over at the airport in Loveland. And finally, the Board just approved a partnership with Sunrise Health. 00:26:07
We'll be creating a student health and Wellness Center on the Greeley campus. 00:26:15
So we've got a lot of exciting things, a lot of partnerships happening, and we want to thank you for your continued support and 00:26:24
everything that you do for our community France Community College. I'm going to stop. I'd like to introduce David Gallegos, who's 00:26:30
a current student and he would like to say a few words and if you wanted to, step to your left. 00:26:36
All right. Well, good morning. Well, again, I'm David Gallos. I'm actually also the Student Government Association VP of Academic 00:26:42
Affairs. 00:26:47
And quite honestly, I'm a. 00:26:52
Huge fan of Lanes Community College when I was presented the opportunity to come and speak for a few moments, which they only gave 00:26:55
me to. So I've got to cut this real brief and I can talk all day long honestly about Ames Community College. 00:27:01
So if you want to get with me after, let me know. We can do that. For me. I don't have a problem. One of the things I love, gosh 00:27:09
there's so many things and a lot of things have been mentioned this morning already. You know, aims are very innovative whether 00:27:15
it's technologies or programs or even I'm a non traditional student and by that I mean I'm older than the average college student 00:27:20
but I'm also a blind student and so. 00:27:26
It's not only the programming that we have, but the ability we have to work with whatever it might be that a student might have 00:27:33
need of. So it's not just. 00:27:37
Community College on another capacity one day, hopefully. I'm also a psychology major and so again, maybe be able to put that to 00:28:20
use in some way moving forward. 00:28:25
But what we work on at AIMS is we're not just developing healthy minds academically, we are building prosperous people and 00:28:30
successful individuals on a personal level. So for my point, it's. 00:28:37
Building better people. There's a better community, and that builds a better world. And so I just feel like we look at success not 00:28:44
only from an academic standpoint, but from a personal standpoint. Are we successful in our mental health? Are we successful in our 00:28:51
physical health? Are we successful in all the things that involves being an individual person? 00:28:57
And so just a holistic approach to loving life and living and making the world a better place for all of us. So again, I don't 00:29:05
want to go over my time, but thank you all so much for your support and thank you for this proclamation. Truly, it means as much 00:29:10
to me as apes. So thank you for your time. 00:29:16
Oh absolutely. I've grown up with AIMS, taking classes from accounting, but recently my doggy dog training 101 so. 00:29:27
But you know, I've always felt that AIMS is just more than that. Community College, it seems like there is so much innovation, so 00:29:37
much. 00:29:40
Outpour in the community of all that you do and all that you provide. And I was very fortunate to carry a bill with Representative 00:29:44
Young to try to get through. Well, we did get the nursing certification for AIM, so I just love AIMS. Keep doing the great work 00:29:49
that you're doing and very, very proud of AIMS in our community. 00:29:55
Thank you, Mr. Friedman. Well, you know Amy's Community College is is a shining light here in Willow County. You know, I actually 00:30:01
had the opportunity to sit on the board for four years and maybe it was it was an honor to do that. It it actually was one of the 00:30:08
most favored boards I ever sat on. Believe it or not, I I enjoyed my time on the end board so much. You guys do a fantastic job, 00:30:15
President Bonoff, you've done a fantastic job with everything that has gone on since and when I was there. 00:30:23
Obviously it was President Marcia Liddell who who I also think the world of and so. 00:30:31
But you just continued the tradition and so thank you so much for what you do and what you provide, the opportunities you provide 00:30:36
for the kids here at Mall County and everywhere else but mainly in Mobile County. Thank you, Mr. Say and I appreciate that you are 00:30:40
so accessible. 00:30:45
To the community and you're providing those options, especially ones that we desperately need in our energy sector. We desperately 00:30:50
need and and trades across Colorado where we've got a huge deficit workers in the in the construction. 00:30:57
I'm so happy to hear that our quest is going to be part of your Innovation Center and I know you guys have been working very, very 00:31:05
hard on that. But just across the board, whether it's oil and gas or or solar, wind or any of those other occupations we 00:31:09
desperately need folks. 00:31:14
To basically kids in this community that are ready to go and my daughter got some concurrent credits there as well, so I really 00:31:20
appreciate that very, very much so. 00:31:23
We have a bright future ahead of us with AIMS. 00:31:29
Just really, really proud of everything that you're doing and what you're going to look forward and not just keep the status quo. 00:31:38
You're getting people into jobs where they can instantly start forming a career, start bringing back money and and and improving 00:32:14
their situation. So it's exciting Mr. Goyals to hear your your story and I appreciate you sharing that with us this morning. And 00:32:20
and Doctor Bernstein, excellent job. You guys all do wonderful. Thank you for everything you do to benefit well County. And with 00:32:26
that we'd love to get a picture with you up here if that's OK, please. Thank you, everybody. 00:32:32
Yep. 00:32:39
Thank you so much. Have a great day. 00:33:58
Our 3rd proclamation today is Fair Housing Month. Do we have a group here for that? Wonderful. Come on up. 00:34:02
I went and start reading the proclamation. 00:34:23
Now, therefore, be it proclaimed by the Board of County Commissioners that the month of April 2024 be known As for Housing Month, 00:34:59
and so hereby urge all citizens of Well County to become aware of and support the Fair Housing Law signed by all 5 Commissioners 00:35:04
so. 00:35:09
Elizabeth, thank you, commissioners. Cynthia and I are extremely pleased to be before you this morning to talk about fair housing 00:35:17
and your support for this effort through our community Development Block Grant program. We are seeing more housing applications 00:35:24
get submitted to the program and get funded through you guys. And so we are extremely grateful for that partnership opportunity 00:35:31
that we get with our municipalities. 00:35:38
To be able to support fair housing and quality of life for every resident in the county. You had mentioned that this is the 56th 00:35:45
anniversary and this year's theme for fair housing is the Is Fair Housing The Act in action and every year the Housing and Urban 00:35:53
Development does a. 00:36:01
A ceremony and opening ceremony. Their opening ceremony this year is on April 11th for Mountain Standard Time it would be noon to 00:36:10
1:30 and anyone is welcome to go to their website and they can register and participate in the in the opening of that ceremony. 00:36:18
And so we just, do you have anything else that Cynthia update on? I just wanted to say the World County Communications Department, 00:36:27
they are doing a series of four posts, one every week, you know just highlighting a different aspect of the fair housing laws, it 00:36:34
it covers many aspects. So I appreciate that too. 00:36:41
Well, thank you guys. Commissioner Buck. Well, they're just doing that. 00:36:50
Again, thank you for all that you're doing for the fair housing and I'm glad well County is recognizing this and. 00:36:53
Delighted to support this proclamation. 00:37:00
Mr. President, yeah, I I would agree. Just thank you for what you guys do. And any opportunity that is provided is 1 opportunity 00:37:03
that wasn't there before. So thank you for what you guys do. 00:37:08
Equal treatment under laws of Republican principles. So I support this. 00:37:14
So come on up. 00:37:50
This is it's kind of. 00:37:55
I'm a good looking. 00:37:59
123. 00:38:21
We are not doing a video, sorry. 00:38:24
123. 00:38:28
Thank you guys. 00:38:31
Item number 4, Proclamation for Child Abuse Prevention Month, April 24. Jamie, do you want to have your team come up while we go 00:39:01
through this? I'm going to, actually. Yeah, sure, they can come up. Let's do that. We're switching it up. But let's read this and 00:39:08
then and then we'll go, if that's OK, All right. Whereas every child deserves to grow up in a safe, loving and stable family. 00:39:15
Be known as Child Abuse Prevention Month and urge all citizens to dedicate themselves to protecting children and connecting with 00:40:00
families within their communities to ensure they are strong and thriving. Signed by all 5 county commissioners. Congratulations. 00:40:07
Good morning, commissioners. I want to thank you so much for those proclamation today. This really does mean a lot to us being 00:40:17
able to be here before you today to talk about all of the great work this team does year round, not just in the month of April or 00:40:23
for today, but really day in and day out for the citizens of World County Child Abuse Prevention Month has been recognized 00:40:29
nationally since 1983. 00:40:35
And it really allows us to provide the community the opportunity to recognize how the support that they provide the families can 00:40:42
really help provide resiliency within those families and just be supportive as folks are going through some challenging times. So 00:40:50
we really do appreciate all of the community members who work really closely with us for cavities prevention. We couldn't do it 00:40:58
alone. We have a lot of partners that really help us. 00:41:06
Throughout the year as we look to to build up families within the community. 00:41:14
Your scheme is building community, building help, and that's the national theme and really that is what we are striving to do, is 00:41:20
just build up health within these families so that they can continue to live and thrive here in Weld County. 00:41:27
We have last year served about 199 families through our prevention team internally within the world County Department of Human 00:41:35
Services, which is a tremendous effort and really the goal there is to prevent further penetration into the system. If we can go 00:41:43
in and we can intervene earlier on if there's some challenges happening, then that really does help that family out and hopefully 00:41:50
they can, you know, be able to continue on and and do really well. 00:41:57
We have a new focus for our prevention team. We're calling it the Lighthouse. 00:42:05
And it's the family navigation and support team. So you will see that logo and out term going out via social media and throughout 00:42:12
the community. And we really just want to be a beacon for all of those families to provide them help. If you would allow me to, I 00:42:19
would love to introduce us. If I read your name, please just raise your hand really quick. 00:42:25
These are certainly not all the folks that that help provide support, but you know, we're just really happy that they could be 00:42:34
here today. 00:42:38
So we rent a calendar. 00:42:44
Peyton Whitaker, Julie Rickowski, Corinne Crandall, John. Karen. 00:42:46
Jennifer Shoemaker. 00:42:53
Geo Flores. 00:42:55
Remy What's? 00:42:56
Heather Walker We have Robin Overmeyer and Stacey Devore. And of course Tammy Grant, our deputy director. Did I forget anybody? 00:43:00
OK. Thank you, commissioners. We appreciate it. Thank you, Mr. Buck. Well, it takes a special person. I'm going to. 00:43:09
And you can tell I can't do that job, it's it's quite emotional and I am so grateful for the ones that can do it and do it well 00:43:17
like all of you. So I want to thank you so much. I know in well County. 00:43:24
Every child deserves love, compassion and every opportunity to succeed. And I know you support our kids and I can't thank you 00:43:31
enough, so God bless all of you, Mr. Freeman. 00:43:36
Thank you so much for caring for every child and making sure that they have stability. 00:44:12
And they have a, they have a room to grow in, a place to belong. And you know. 00:44:18
Swimming upstream from problems that can occur later by not catching it now and offering that opportunity to heal. 00:44:23
For his children will go a long way to making sure that they can thrive later in life, especially when they're out on their own 00:44:30
and they can find their way because someone stepped in early. 00:44:35
And made that connection, made that bridge so they could they could thrive. So thank you so much again for what you do. This is 00:44:41
very. 00:44:45
Very difficult topic. No child should be abused. 00:44:49
I would have to everything that's been said. My daughter was home from college this weekend and she flipped on some show and was 00:44:52
about abuse that was going on during some children's shows that were being filmed back when I was growing up and he had no idea. 00:44:59
But it shows your children are vulnerable and they become prey at any moment. I applaud you guys for stepping in, preventing that, 00:45:05
stepping up, giving people safe spaces, educating people. It's it's truly important because. 00:45:12
Children are vulnerable. They're they can be taken advantage of. 00:45:20
We have to be the the protectors. We have to step up for our most important population or one of our most important populations. 00:45:23
So I think you guys, it's yeoman's work. It takes a lot of effort. It's a lot of emotion I'm imagining, but I think each and 00:45:28
everyone of you because it's. 00:45:33
You're helping the future and can't be said enough about that, so thank you all very much so. 00:45:40
We'll have you guys stay up here. 00:45:51
I know it's like steps. 00:46:03
All right, everybody ready? 00:46:16
123. 00:46:18
And one more. 00:46:21

like to come forward. 00:13:47
This is exciting to see. 00:13:55
We did leave somebody to answer the phone. 00:13:58
Why you guys are rocking up here. I'm going to go ahead and read this proclamation in Okay. 00:14:04
And whereas the theme for National Public Health Week 2024, We Are All Public Health emphasizes the collective responsibility and 00:15:17
interconnectedness of individuals, families, organizations, and governments in creating healthier communities. Now, therefore, be 00:15:23

and initiatives. 00:15:40
Into promoting health and Wellness in our community. Signed by all 5 Commissioners. 00:15:47
Jason, thank you Sir. This is a great group of people to work with and it's it's great to be able to recognize them at National 00:15:58
Public Health Week. Just a few quick words. 00:16:04
Many Warren County residents don't. 00:16:11
Interact directly with our department, but that doesn't mean that they don't benefit from the programs that our department offers. 00:16:13
The programs and services that we provide are intended to protect the public health of all residents of Weld County. While we may 00:16:20
focus on an individual in the case of immunizations or disease investigations, those services are intended to again protect the 00:16:27
public health of the entire county. Some of the services that we provide and and you had a good list. 00:16:34
Immunizations, disease investigations, chronic disease prevention such as cardiac, cardiovascular disease. 00:16:42
Food safety inspections, of course, in restaurants. 00:16:51
These investigations red exposure investigations primarily in children. 00:16:54
Laboratory services, more quality drinking and wastewater, biosolids and septic application, diabetes training and education, 00:17:00
substance abuse prevention, healthy eating and nutritional education, household hazardous waste disposal, and many more that that 00:17:08
probably constitutes 10 or 15% of the entire span of programs that we offer, but those are some of the main ones. 00:17:16
And again, all of these programs, whether we directly serve individuals, individual residents of our county, part of those 00:17:25
services are designed to protect the overall public health of well County. 00:17:31
I'm proud to work with this group of employees. It is I've been here I believe 14 months now. We have an outstanding team of 00:17:38
employees in our health department's. 00:17:43
The skill sets that they have serve our community well and they probably have many opportunities to work elsewhere. Thank you for 00:17:50
choosing to work at Weld County. 00:17:56
Thank you. Thank you. 00:18:02
Did you have anything to add to the group? Oh, absolutely. I have to tell you, it's just been an honor to be the coordinator with 00:18:09
Jason to hear all the programs that you do provide. It's just it's overwhelming because you can't comprehend all that you do for 00:18:16
our citizens of Well County And working with Sean and Dan and and Jason, like I said, you guys just rocked. And I just want to say 00:18:23
a year ago I would see Jason out on the trail and. 00:18:30
It's been a year that I've been putting 10,000 steps on my calendar and I would say just that little spark of inspiration that you 00:18:37
gave me, I've done it for a whole year now. So thank you so much. 00:18:44
Excuse me, I just want to, I just want to say thank you all you guys as well and it truly was, it truly wasn't to meet with you 00:18:53
weekly all of last year. Jason, you know you always, you always when you hire somebody new you wanted to forget the right guy. 00:19:00
Well, trust me people we've got the right guy. 00:19:06
You've done a fantastic job. I'm so proud of what you've done, where you're at in our health department and and when we say you 00:19:13
know it's not the individual people, you say it's the overall health of the citizens world county and that's absolutely what our 00:19:18
health department is about. So thank you guys for what you do every day. 00:19:22
Seriously. Yes. I'm not had the Opportunity Channel briefing yet, but I will say all your staff, they do this because they care. 00:19:28
And they care about people and they care about Weld County. And I just want to thank you all for doing everything you can do. And 00:19:37
you listed awesome things I didn't even know about, like the house household waste. I also always investigation there's probably 00:19:42
like 100 things that you probably do to make sure that Weldon County is is safe for everyone. So I just want to thank you so much 00:19:47
again for your heart. 00:19:52
In your heart of service especially, and then treating the rest of our residents like family. 00:19:58
Jason, you've done an excellent job here and I just want to come in the whole team and say thank you. And with that, we'd love to 00:20:36
get a picture with everybody up front here. So congratulations. 00:20:41

People in the back. Sure people. And we may if you you can cut a. 00:20:54
Great. Maybe 3 lines if somebody. 00:21:04

Come on, don't be afraid. 00:21:39
Normally don't understand that new more people, few more people. 00:21:44

We still never did get a chance to chat so. 00:22:26
Thank you. 00:22:31
Oh. 00:22:36
OK. Thank you very much. Public Health, we appreciate you. 00:22:54
Item number two is our Community College month. I think we may have a few people from AIM here. Is that correct? Come on up 00:22:58
please. 00:23:02
While you guys are coming on up, I'll go ahead and read our proclamation. It's Community College Month, April 2024. Whereas Ames 00:23:10
Community College plays a vital role in shaping the future of Northern Colorado and its economy by providing high quality 00:23:16
education and training to students of all backgrounds and ages. And whereas Ames Community College continues to foster equitable 00:23:23
access to keeping colleges affordable as possible, providing access to a college education. 00:23:29
2024 Be known as Community College Month, signed by all 5 county commissioners. 00:24:42
Good morning. It's a great day to be at. 00:24:53
So thank you so much for recognizing and Community College in this way. 00:24:57
We are all very, very proud to serve our community through higher education at Ames Community College. And today we have, we have 00:25:02
students, we have faculty, we have staff, we have administrators, we have a board member, Gino, who is here to to just celebrate 00:25:10
together. As many of you know, we just completed a five year strategic plan this year we've been. 00:25:17
Crafting our next three-year Strategic Plan, and I'll give you a little peek inside to what's kind of coming. 00:25:26
There's a few big projects that we're looking toward and very excited about. One of them that I know you've heard about is the 00:25:33
Ames Workforce Innovation Center. We're lovingly call a a Wick. It's going to be our Innovation Center incubator and we're hoping 00:25:39
that Alquist is going to be the. 00:25:44
Anchor tenant there and we'll see how also that serves our community. We also the board just approved last fall airframe and power 00:25:51
plant maintenance program that will round out the whole aviation ecosystem and we're looking at that to be part of our flight 00:25:59
training center area over at the airport in Loveland. And finally, the Board just approved a partnership with Sunrise Health. 00:26:07
We'll be creating a student health and Wellness Center on the Greeley campus. 00:26:15
So we've got a lot of exciting things, a lot of partnerships happening, and we want to thank you for your continued support and 00:26:24
everything that you do for our community France Community College. I'm going to stop. I'd like to introduce David Gallegos, who's 00:26:30
a current student and he would like to say a few words and if you wanted to, step to your left. 00:26:36
All right. Well, good morning. Well, again, I'm David Gallos. I'm actually also the Student Government Association VP of Academic 00:26:42
Affairs. 00:26:47
And quite honestly, I'm a. 00:26:52
Huge fan of Lanes Community College when I was presented the opportunity to come and speak for a few moments, which they only gave 00:26:55
me to. So I've got to cut this real brief and I can talk all day long honestly about Ames Community College. 00:27:01
So if you want to get with me after, let me know. We can do that. For me. I don't have a problem. One of the things I love, gosh 00:27:09
there's so many things and a lot of things have been mentioned this morning already. You know, aims are very innovative whether 00:27:15
it's technologies or programs or even I'm a non traditional student and by that I mean I'm older than the average college student 00:27:20
but I'm also a blind student and so. 00:27:26
It's not only the programming that we have, but the ability we have to work with whatever it might be that a student might have 00:27:33
need of. So it's not just. 00:27:37
Community College on another capacity one day, hopefully. I'm also a psychology major and so again, maybe be able to put that to 00:28:20
use in some way moving forward. 00:28:25
But what we work on at AIMS is we're not just developing healthy minds academically, we are building prosperous people and 00:28:30
successful individuals on a personal level. So for my point, it's. 00:28:37
Building better people. There's a better community, and that builds a better world. And so I just feel like we look at success not 00:28:44
only from an academic standpoint, but from a personal standpoint. Are we successful in our mental health? Are we successful in our 00:28:51
physical health? Are we successful in all the things that involves being an individual person? 00:28:57
And so just a holistic approach to loving life and living and making the world a better place for all of us. So again, I don't 00:29:05
want to go over my time, but thank you all so much for your support and thank you for this proclamation. Truly, it means as much 00:29:10
to me as apes. So thank you for your time. 00:29:16
Oh absolutely. I've grown up with AIMS, taking classes from accounting, but recently my doggy dog training 101 so. 00:29:27
But you know, I've always felt that AIMS is just more than that. Community College, it seems like there is so much innovation, so 00:29:37
much. 00:29:40
Outpour in the community of all that you do and all that you provide. And I was very fortunate to carry a bill with Representative 00:29:44
Young to try to get through. Well, we did get the nursing certification for AIM, so I just love AIMS. Keep doing the great work 00:29:49
that you're doing and very, very proud of AIMS in our community. 00:29:55
Thank you, Mr. Friedman. Well, you know Amy's Community College is is a shining light here in Willow County. You know, I actually 00:30:01
had the opportunity to sit on the board for four years and maybe it was it was an honor to do that. It it actually was one of the 00:30:08
most favored boards I ever sat on. Believe it or not, I I enjoyed my time on the end board so much. You guys do a fantastic job, 00:30:15
President Bonoff, you've done a fantastic job with everything that has gone on since and when I was there. 00:30:23
Obviously it was President Marcia Liddell who who I also think the world of and so. 00:30:31
But you just continued the tradition and so thank you so much for what you do and what you provide, the opportunities you provide 00:30:36
for the kids here at Mall County and everywhere else but mainly in Mobile County. Thank you, Mr. Say and I appreciate that you are 00:30:40
so accessible. 00:30:45
To the community and you're providing those options, especially ones that we desperately need in our energy sector. We desperately 00:30:50
need and and trades across Colorado where we've got a huge deficit workers in the in the construction. 00:30:57
I'm so happy to hear that our quest is going to be part of your Innovation Center and I know you guys have been working very, very 00:31:05
hard on that. But just across the board, whether it's oil and gas or or solar, wind or any of those other occupations we 00:31:09
desperately need folks. 00:31:14
To basically kids in this community that are ready to go and my daughter got some concurrent credits there as well, so I really 00:31:20
appreciate that very, very much so. 00:31:23
We have a bright future ahead of us with AIMS. 00:31:29
Just really, really proud of everything that you're doing and what you're going to look forward and not just keep the status quo. 00:31:38
You're getting people into jobs where they can instantly start forming a career, start bringing back money and and and improving 00:32:14
their situation. So it's exciting Mr. Goyals to hear your your story and I appreciate you sharing that with us this morning. And 00:32:20
and Doctor Bernstein, excellent job. You guys all do wonderful. Thank you for everything you do to benefit well County. And with 00:32:26
that we'd love to get a picture with you up here if that's OK, please. Thank you, everybody. 00:32:32
Yep. 00:32:39
Thank you so much. Have a great day. 00:33:58

nationally since 1983. 00:40:35
And it really allows us to provide the community the opportunity to recognize how the support that they provide the families can 00:40:42
really help provide resiliency within those families and just be supportive as folks are going through some challenging times. So 00:40:50
we really do appreciate all of the community members who work really closely with us for cavities prevention. We couldn't do it 00:40:58
alone. We have a lot of partners that really help us. 00:41:06
Throughout the year as we look to to build up families within the community. 00:41:14
Your scheme is building community, building help, and that's the national theme and really that is what we are striving to do, is 00:41:20
just build up health within these families so that they can continue to live and thrive here in Weld County. 00:41:27
We have last year served about 199 families through our prevention team internally within the world County Department of Human 00:41:35
Services, which is a tremendous effort and really the goal there is to prevent further penetration into the system. If we can go 00:41:43
in and we can intervene earlier on if there's some challenges happening, then that really does help that family out and hopefully 00:41:50
they can, you know, be able to continue on and and do really well. 00:41:57
We have a new focus for our prevention team. We're calling it the Lighthouse. 00:42:05
And it's the family navigation and support team. So you will see that logo and out term going out via social media and throughout 00:42:12
the community. And we really just want to be a beacon for all of those families to provide them help. If you would allow me to, I 00:42:19
would love to introduce us. If I read your name, please just raise your hand really quick. 00:42:25
These are certainly not all the folks that that help provide support, but you know, we're just really happy that they could be 00:42:34
here today. 00:42:38
So we rent a calendar. 00:42:44

Remy What's? 00:42:56
Heather Walker We have Robin Overmeyer and Stacey Devore. And of course Tammy Grant, our deputy director. Did I forget anybody? 00:43:00
OK. Thank you, commissioners. We appreciate it. Thank you, Mr. Buck. Well, it takes a special person. I'm going to. 00:43:09
And you can tell I can't do that job, it's it's quite emotional and I am so grateful for the ones that can do it and do it well 00:43:17
like all of you. So I want to thank you so much. I know in well County. 00:43:24
Every child deserves love, compassion and every opportunity to succeed. And I know you support our kids and I can't thank you 00:43:31
enough, so God bless all of you, Mr. Freeman. 00:43:36
Thank you so much for caring for every child and making sure that they have stability. 00:44:12
And they have a, they have a room to grow in, a place to belong. And you know. 00:44:18
Swimming upstream from problems that can occur later by not catching it now and offering that opportunity to heal. 00:44:23
For his children will go a long way to making sure that they can thrive later in life, especially when they're out on their own 00:44:30
and they can find their way because someone stepped in early. 00:44:35
And made that connection, made that bridge so they could they could thrive. So thank you so much again for what you do. This is 00:44:41
very. 00:44:45
Very difficult topic. No child should be abused. 00:44:49
I would have to everything that's been said. My daughter was home from college this weekend and she flipped on some show and was 00:44:52
about abuse that was going on during some children's shows that were being filmed back when I was growing up and he had no idea. 00:44:59
But it shows your children are vulnerable and they become prey at any moment. I applaud you guys for stepping in, preventing that, 00:45:05
stepping up, giving people safe spaces, educating people. It's it's truly important because. 00:45:12
Children are vulnerable. They're they can be taken advantage of. 00:45:20
We have to be the the protectors. We have to step up for our most important population or one of our most important populations. 00:45:23
So I think you guys, it's yeoman's work. It takes a lot of effort. It's a lot of emotion I'm imagining, but I think each and 00:45:28
everyone of you because it's. 00:45:33
You're helping the future and can't be said enough about that, so thank you all very much so. 00:45:40
We'll have you guys stay up here. 00:45:51
