Speaking for many of his fellow vendors, Jeffery McNeil thanked Lisa Estrada, Street Sense Board President, for her service to the organization. He said he’d miss seeing her every day.
At a celebration held by Arent Fox law firm, new board president Brad Scriber presented Lisa with a matted copy of the advertisement the board of directors purchased in Street Sense to honor her. He thanked her for her service and leadership,hoping to continue her work and build upon it.
In an emotional farewell, Lisa explained how Street Sense changed her to change her worldview. She said she will always remember the times she was able to walk all the way from Judiciary Square to Dupont Circle, and see 20 vendors. She demanded her associates walk with her in order to open their eyes.
