Celebrate and appreciate

November 18, 2021

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

A time for fellowship and food. A time for relaxation and reflection. A time for recognizing the people, places and things for which we are grateful.

I’ve offered my gratitude in this blog near this holiday for our faculty, our staff and our students. For our Pioneer Pantry, our building projects and our expansions. For our initiatives and our partnerships. And more.

I am also thankful for our success as a top-ranked institution of higher education, not possible without the outstanding professionals who served as president before me.

There was Dr. James A. Lawson, Dr. Thomas Ten Hoeve, Dr. Frederick W. Woodward, Dr. William N. Price, Dr. Thaddeus Penar, Dr. Fred Bartok and Dr. Cynthia Azari.

I am grateful for them.

I am grateful for how BC3 has improved lives for those gathered around Thanksgiving tables for nearly six decades.

I am grateful for you.

And I am, as always, so very Pioneer Proud!
