Thankful Thursdays…For People Like Her
You know how in almost every meeting or group there is always someone you can count on to keep things organized and motivated?
If you’ve attended our weekly Zoom Meetings, then you know that person is Debe Maxwell, CRS.
It’s hard to believe that what began as a small Zoom-Coffee meetup at the beginning of the Pandemic has transitioned into a weekly learning experience for many of us.
And every week…with maybe one absence that I can remember…Debe is there acting as our host and moderator. She has even Zoomed (hands-free) in the car while on the way back to her office so that the meeting could get started.
Debe makes sure that we have a chance to ask questions and that our speaker has the opportunity to answer them.
It’s not an easy task, either. People want to speak at the same time…phones ring…dogs bark…and without losing any of her Southern politeness…Debe reminds us of our mute buttons and to “raise our hands” the Zoom way.
If someone is going off track or is too long-winded, like a debate moderator, she steers them to a quick conclusion. All the while, Debe sits there giving 100% attention to the speaker.
I so appreciate her efforts and am thankful that she is willing to step up to the plate for us.
Thank you, Debe Maxwell!
