I try, I fail, I try, I fail, I decide.

lost it Tuesday when something happened and I didn’t get my way and words flew.  Let’s try something different.

We Met the Challenge!

For the third year, SCMA offered the Education Foundation a $1,000 Challenge Grant, and for the third year, we met it! With generous donations from the mediation community, we exceeded the Challenge, received donations from institutions as well as individuals, and received a $10,000 donation from an anonymous supporter! We are very grateful for this support and wanted to let everyone know about it.

We now have the flexibility to consider expanding the programs we supported last year and implementing a new program that we feel is unnoticed and unmet. We’re meeting soon to make those decisions, and I’ll keep you up-to-date.

You’ve read the comments from students about the importance of these programs. Know that without your support, they would not have the opportunity to, as one educator put it, “learn how to talk to each other.” And don’t we all need to learn that?

Thanks very much,


Maria Simpson, Ph.D.
SCMA-EF Board Chair
