Life is Change: It is rare in this age of rapid change to have the opportunity to work with a colleague for 15 years. Leigh Ann Howe joined Whittaker Associates 15 years ago as an intern while completing her undergraduate degree at Ball State University in Indiana. Ten years ago when I relocated the world headquarters of Whittaker Associates to Holland, Michigan, Leigh chose to relocate with us. It is with mixed feelings of sadness for me and joy for her that I report that Leigh will be leaving Whittaker Associates at the end of the month to return to her roots in Indiana. On behalf of myself, her colleagues with whom she has worked over the years, and the many clients that she has served I wish her well in her new endeavor. –Dean
