This past Friday, Capitol Area Transit and the Bismarck Early Childhood Education Program got together to dedicate a bus shelter to a long time teacher, administrator, mentor, and leader.

MaryAnn Anderson spent her career dedicated to changing children's lives. Although she passed away on June 11, 2012, her motto is now inscribed on the shelter.

One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had, nor what my clothes were like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.

More than 40 family members, friends, BECEP and CAT employees, and community members gathered for this historic event. This is the first CAT shelter to ever be dedicated.

BisMan is a collection of extraordinary individuals, and MaryAnn is a true testament to our community. Now we have a monument to serve as a reminder of how important she was to so many people.
