Congratulations on an amazing legacy! SPU Gymnastics is Laurel Tindall, and Laurel Tindall is SPU Gymnastics. I simply can’t imagine one without the other. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your legacy for four years. When I think of you, I think of strength, dedication, determination, knowledge, consistency, excellence, passion, and leadership. Thank you for being an amazing example of a strong, independent, woman. We can all identify time periods in our lives which were turning points, and often these turning points involve a specific influential person. Thank you for being part of a major turning point in my life. You helped me through my transition from childhood to adulthood - in school, in gymnastics, and in life. I will always be grateful for your influence. I am honored to be celebrating your legacy with you. I wish you health, happiness, and adventure as you transition to the next phase of your life.
With love and admiration, JoEllen (Strada) James 1983 - 1987
