I sent an email to our campus community earlier this week about Thanksgiving, and I want to expand on that message to make sure that all of you know the deep sense of gratitude I feel for your support of Saint Paul College.
As you celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, giving thanks for all you hold dear in your lives, I want to express to you how grateful I am to be a part of Saint Paul College. I know of no other campus that is as blessed as ours. We are a wonderfully diverse community of people with generous hearts and kind souls.
All of the efforts made by students, staff and faculty are what make Saint Paul College a unique place for learning. We celebrate both our similarities and differences. This true celebration of differences makes us a stronger institution. The distinctiveness and individuality of each of us, contributes to our depth and understanding as people and as an institution.
People are the heartbeat of this institution. We all are working together to provide an extraordinary education for our students. Together we work to create an environment for our students where they are allowed to thrive. We are so thankful for our students, who with their own passionate commitment to learning and with their desire to be successful in their chosen careers, continue this circle of education and learning throughout their lifetimes.
I cannot thank you all enough for your commitment to Saint Paul College.
May we all return to campus renewed and ready to engage once again in the mindfulness of student success, and encouraging each other in all that we do.
I wish you a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving and look forward to seeing you next week.
