Stepping into the shoes of visionary leaders isn’t easy. Indeed, my six years at the helm of Saturday Academy has not diminished my awe of my predecessors and my fear of not living up to what they created. This was a bittersweet week. I attended the memorial service of Lee Jackson. Jackie Jackson was the visionary who started Saturday Academy with Gail Whitney 35 years ago. Lee was her husband. Lee and his children, Karen, Phil and Jennifer have continuously supported Saturday Academy and for so many years long after Jackie was no longer with us.
