Dear Parents, Guardians and Family Members,
As I reflect on the last three years, I feel the above quote illustrates the spirit in which I have led Girard College as its 16th president. Many of you have joined board members, volunteers, alumni, staff and students to move Girard College to a place of awesomeness. For your positive efforts and prayers, I am truly grateful. In my final week as president, I thought it important to share some of our successes and a few words of advice. I hope you will indulge me for just a few moments, by reading this letter.
