Dear friends,

I have been in the role of Executive Director in Dallas since August, and in my time I have seen an agency that is nothing short of amazing.

A new year always seems to bring about talk of change, growth and moving forward. It offers a refreshing view of the path ahead. As we look to future days, our goal is to grow with integrity and continue to treat everyone with respect and kindness. If Mosaic in Dallas has learned anything in the past year, we’ve learned to embrace transition.

Scott Spitler is one of those people you never forget.

When Scott isn’t traveling the world, working or participating in events at Highland Park United Methodist Church, you can find him expressing himself through performance art.

As a member of Jesters (a performing arts group for Special Needs adults), Scott has been in seven original productions on stage, once playing a super hero called Fly Guy.

Local songwriter Bill Cox recently met Scott and was inspired to write a song about him.
