This week colleagues, friends, and family will help Dr. Gaither celebrate her amazing career as an art educator before retiring to life as a full-time artist. Dr. Gaither has been teaching students in Baltimore County and Howard County in Maryland as well as at the Maryland Institute College of Art for 44 years, sharing her unique talents and energy with everyone she came into contact with. Throughout the week people will gather to pay tribute to her career and say thank you for her seemingly boundless energy and enthusiasm which envelopes everyone around her.
Congratulations Dr. Gaither on your retirement. Actually, given what I have just written about the word "retirement" sounds entirely out of place. Let me try again.
Congratulations Dr. Gaither on your transition. May you enjoy this new phase in your career. We can't wait to see what happens next!
