    " Sending a warm thank you from Team ReThink for the generous support CES BC has offered to allow us to attend the Canadian Evaluation Society Student Case Competition final round in Calgary. We are hard at work preparing and so excited to be a part of this event - what a great opportunity for our group of new and emerging evaluators! Wouldn't be possible without the support from CES BC as we are spread out over a bunch of different universities and haven't been able to secure funding from all of them. Looking forward to doing BC proud in the final round.

    Much appreciated!!! 

    Team ReThink: 

    Anita Minh, Michelle Naimi, Zahra Remtulla, and Clint Thomson
