Many of you know Debbie Ryan, who had served the state of Michigan for 24 years, most notably as the MOECS product owner. It is with sad hearts that we announce that Debbie Ryan passed away.

Debbie was not just a team member but was a true, valued, and respected friend to all who worked with her. She was deeply passionate about the field of education and worked to ensure that our educators are well supported for over 20 years. She loved her job and we loved her.
