Centre promises "personal" education, and a big part of personal is knowing the persons who are part of your community. For that reason, we frequently include a photo of the individual making the submision—to help bring "names and faces together." If you prefer not to have your picture included, just say so on your submission and we'll honor that personal request as well.
