We are terribly sad to accept the resignation of Mike Christie from the Wiki Education Foundation board. As Mike wrote on his on-wiki notice announcing his decision, he has been part of the Wiki Education Foundation’s leadership since we were a working group of volunteers trying to determine the best way to support the Wikipedia Education Program in the United States and Canada back in spring 2012.
Mike’s involvement has been instrumental in bringing the Wiki Education Foundation into being. His thoughtful approach to decision-making and careful documentation of our discussions as secretary have helped us maintain transparency with our stakeholders. Mike always speaks from what he believes, and his drive to make sure our organization properly incorporated the Wikipedia editing community’s views was key to the success we’ve had so far.
We will miss Mike’s brilliant perspective and engaging personality on the Wiki Education Foundation board and we look forward to his continued involvement as a supporter of our organization. Mike, thank you for all your incredibly helpful input over the last two years. We wouldn’t have accomplished as much as we have without your hard work.
