Region 7 Excel Survey Results
May 28, 2014

I recently conducted a web-based survey querying comments I have heard thru-out the season, to determine if they were isolated or widespread concerns.

I appreciate all those who responded, and especially appreciate the comments in the open-ended sections. Please share results with your coaches and judges.

Thanks,
Jane Caruso
