On June 13, 2005 Wayne D. Jennings, Chairman of the New Hampshire Cultural Diversity Awareness Council visited the Massachusetts State Police Headquarters.
The purpose of the visit was to thank Colonel Thomas G. Robbins for giving him the honor, pleasure, and privilege of having Sergeant Robert J. Sylvester and Trooper Zina J. Chambers serve as facilitators at last January's "Keeping the Dream Alive" cultural diversity workshop in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire. Their charismatic leadership enabled 20 junior high school children in their group to stay motivated and engage in the workshop activities.
Mr. Jennings states "We recognize the demands, which are put on the State Police, have stretched the department's personnel and resources. We are extremely grateful for the high level of support and cooperation that you have given our organization".
Colonel Robbins acknowledges that the Massachusetts State Police will participate in the up coming 6th Annual "Keeping the Dream Alive" cultural diversity workshop at Waterville Valley on Wednesday, January 11, 2006.
