The start of a new school year can bring up a lot of emotions. To all the students, I don’t know how you’re feeling, but I’m a lot excited and a little nervous. Just like the incoming first-year students, this is my first year at Fort Lewis College. We’ll be kicking off this adventure together.
Over the past few weeks I’ve had the chance to meet a number of students already. I’m inspired by what I see. You have tremendous potential, and it’s my job, and the job of the faculty and staff, to make sure you have all the tools and opportunities you need to succeed.
I would wish you luck, but you don’t need it. Put the time and work in and you’ll do great things. I guarantee you’ll amaze yourself.
