Minutes after FLY’s virtual CEO Transition ceremony, we sat down with Christa and Ali to hear their initial thoughts in their new positions along with their biggest takeaways since COVID-19. 

There are so many horrible things about COVID-19, but Christa highlights the importance of seeing the hidden blessings and moments of joy still present despite it all. For example, she noted that the virtual CEO Transition ceremony on zoom hosted nearly 200 attendees. Seeing so many of us come together in celebration was an inspiring demonstration of love, joy, appreciation, and hope. 

Ali states that so much about FLY centers around community. What the current situation has proven is that under any circumstance, FLY is able to serve our kids and fulfill our mission. The FLY magic is strong. It exists and persists even when we are miles apart. Like Christa said at the beginning of the video, despite all the turmoil going on in the world, FLY is able to see through it all and stay resilient and hopeful for the future. 

We hope you join us in the next exciting chapter for FLY. Sign up for the latest news on any page of our website.
