In trying times, history shows that communities and cultures prevail when people are drawn together for a common cause. Our common cause is to continue offering a great educational and co-curricular experience to our students. I’m confident that we’ll come out of this viral period succeeding as an institution, in order to sustain our community, our students and each other.
