I want you to know that I will always consider myself a Maverick, as does my daughter, who is now 27 and the mother to a 4 year old boy that is the light of my life. She went to the Maverick Club everyday with me in the summer and even went to 2 Maverick Camps. Anyways, I am nearly heartbroken to hear of the state of Camp Maverick. That was, by far, my favorite part of the Maverick. I loved the ďpre-campĒ get togethers we had with the Alumni, hearing all of the stories from camps past and the chance we had to share that history with the kids of the Alumni that made it to pre-camp. I also read where all of the Boy and Girl of the year pictures are gone. I want you to know that all of those pictures were there when I left in 2002. I donít know when they were taken down, but it was after I left. As for the medals and trophies that were there when I was there, I gave the majority of the ones we had to the individuals that had earned them. I believe I had to get them back from Tommy Joe first, though. He grabbed them when he got upset with a previous administrator and was keeping them safe from destruction, which I completely understand. We had two or three camp banners hanging in the game room when I was there, but I donít know what happened to them after I left. Iím sorry all of that history is gone now. As for me, Iím still the Executive Director at Childrenís Learning Centers in Amarillo, which is where I went after the Maverick Club. Itís been a good gig for me for nearly 14 years. I will always cherish my time at the Maverick and wish I could have stayed longer, but I had to move on. I always appreciated and valued the passion and love the Alumni had for the Maverick and I want you to know that I appreciate everything you do and did for the Club. Best Wishes, Steve Burton Executive Director Childrenís Learning Centers"
