“When I was acting as Vice-Chair for the Clarks Summit Centennial Planning Committee in 2010-2011, I was interviewed many times by Joan Mead-Matsui. I was not used to being interviewed and I was very impressed by her professionalism and her ability to ask questions to make clear what I was trying to say. She allowed me to wander around a topic and then would bring me back to the essence of the matter under discussion with her questions. In addition to her ability to extract the essence of what I was saying, she also taught me how to express myself more clearly in what I had to say. It was due to people like her that our Centennial was so well reported.”
