Dear NDI New Mexico Family,

I want to share with you some exciting news!

In September and this past week, Albuquerque Business First, with a panel of civic and business representatives, awarded NDI New Mexico the statewide Non Profit of the Year award in the Arts, Culture and Humanities category and selected Russell Baker, our Executive Director, as the Top CEO in the Non-Profit category. These awards recognize the strengths and impact of our programs and acknowledge the excellence Russell brings to his job. His leadership, commitment to best business practices and vision for NDI New Mexico is leading this organization to new heights!

I hope you all will join me in celebrating these awards and congratulate Russell when you next see him. And please congratulate yourself as well! These honors spotlight the good work being done in all areas of our organization. From our dedicated Board and Emeritus Directors, to our hard working and talented administrative, development, teaching, artistic and production staff and the facilities management, we have many people who are dedicated and tireless. Their efforts are assuring that all of the 9,500 children touched by NDI New Mexico receive lessons in artistic expression, self-esteem, a strong work ethic and a commitment to health and fitness that will serve them well throughout their lives.

And to our generous and loyal donors, I want you to know how much we truly appreciate your part in all this work and progress. Your commitment strengthens the organization and makes possible achieving our goals for serving children across the state.

My thanks to each of you for all that you do, and I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together this year.

Diane Doniger
