Mediator paved the way to resolution

The writer is the former president of NECCA’s Board of Trustees.

Originally published in The Commons issue #418 (Wednesday, July 26, 2017).

I want to personally thank Larry Cassidy for stepping forward to help in the attempts to find a resolution between the NECCA coaches and board.

I think it’s fair to say his impartiality and common sense helped advance the dialogue and led to the the coaches return last Wednesday.

Progress at any level is valued, and his sincere efforts need to be acknowledged and honored by all.

Mel Martin
