We have entered the season of thanksgiving and celebration! It is my favorite time of the year. We take time to come together over shared experiences. We pause and reflect on our lives to this point, as well as connect with family and friends often made secondary by the hectic pace of our lives. At this time of the year, I want to take the opportunity to say how grateful I am for each of you and how you represent our alma mater.
I also pray that you find much joy in revisiting the memories and stories constructed with the help of classmates you met along the way. I also wish each of you nothing but the greatest happiness and success as we move into a new year, filled with challenges, possibilities and opportunities to continue that educational journey we started at a place called SIUE.
