People on premium perspective is the optimism from those who are sharing stories with me and I really truly feel like we are all learning together. I love hearing what they're reading. What podcast they listened to what works in leadership roles and that definitely one of the things that I really have taken away from the past year. Their honesty wisdom and advice has made me grow as an interviewer. But I'm also listening to and I listen back and I learn something every single time so I just want to thank all of the wonderful guest that I've had the honor to interview here on Permian perspective. I know when I got into journalism over twenty three. I guess it has been over twenty three years ago that my goal was to inform people with information that would help in their day to day. Life I also wanted to inspire people to live their best life whether it was telling them about a new vitamin that lowered their cholesterol or school. Closings on a snow day or maybe a story about a neighbor making our community better stories that impact people was always the goal over the past fifty two weeks. I've had the opportunity to visit with so many local guests that represent the Permian Basin. We've listened to Permian official state officials like the Railroad Commissioner. Some of the most influential women like Jimmy Butler with Baker Hughes and the use of three s Laura Wolf with base and PBS. And through it. All we've learned one common denominator makes the Permian Basin. Can you guess what it is? That's right you got it. It's the people I look forward to continue sharing the stories of oil and gas leaders of the Permian Basin. And if there's a story you'd love to hear from a leader please let me know who it is. I will reach out and we will sit down and interview them. Whether that's here in person at my store rig idea work where then caster? We've been doing a lot of interviews through the internet which has been so wonderful that we've continued to be able to share stories during this time. So Lemme he'd love to hear from. I'd also like to thank each and every one of you for listening. I know that we wouldn't have a podcast without listeners. And I love running into the grocery store or at the bank or now just driving by in the neighborhood or walking in the neighborhood and hearing that you listened to one of the podcast truly made a difference in your life.

Greg Abbott's recent order restricting gatherings of more than ten people so it's time now to announce this week's community. Mvp and we have three local organizations sharing that title we have based on PBS Midland Community Theatre and the Museum of the South West. Now all three of these entities have had to make difficult decisions cancel their largest fundraising events. Main Street live summer. Mummers and September fest. Now they do plan to bring them back next year. They really could use your support. You may have even seen the letter in the Midland reporter telegram recently asking for support an absence of these fantastic community events that we all look forward to in if you've been in the Bison you've been to summer members it is something you will never forget September fest another fantastic local community event that I look forward to every year and of course recently main street live which just kicked off last year and it had to be cancelled so if you would like to support the arts that need our help now more than ever.
