As many of our readers know, Elizabeth Ochs recently passed Street Sights on to a new team of leading editors. Though she is no longer the coordinating editor, her hard work and community-oriented vision set the precedent for a paper which continues to work to the same standards of professionalism while espousing the ideals of integrative communities and advocacy.
Elizabeth recently announced she is leaving Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless for a job in education. We wish to tell her how we feel:
Liz, you’re impossible to get mad at. Try as we might, it’s just not possible to even get mad at you–never mind staying mad; that’s beyond impossible. Your mom and dad did such a great job with you, we’re thinking of asking them for the formula they used so we can apply it to our kids!
Elizabeth opens doors for people who’ve had too many closed, sometimes time and time again. What a great person! You are genuinely kind, compassionate and sincere. Very positive and uplifting, which we all need more of.
Elizabeth loves to garden. In creating and growing Street Sights she has brought many of the same skills: vision for the garden, preparing the soil, planting many seeds, nurturing what has been planted, fertilizing the plants, bringing in the harvest and delighting in the abundance of the garden. Elizabeth,
We Love You!
