We are on our way to Spring 2013 semester and I am ready to get started. Intersession is a bit quiet for me. Hearing and seeing students at every corner is now a way of life here at the College.
Our Professional Day promises to be stimulating and inspirational. It is Wednesday, January 23 and will be held in the Multi-purpose Room. Judy Snayd has planned the program and enlisted Professor Gail Lowney Alofsin as presenter. Judy determined this all-college gathering was how she would choose to allocate the monetary portion of her Educational Excellence Award, received last year. My thanks and appreciation to Judy. As the agenda shows, a continental breakfast will be available at 8:30 AM. At lunch we will celebrate the launching of the College’s 50th anniversary. Thames was established in 1963. Two Emeritus Awards will be given.
At the end of the planned program, George Rezendes and I will roll out the Strategic Plan in summary form. You will be invited to first read it on line or hard copy. Later members of the Steering Committee will invite college community members to meet with them and help shape the next steps. You will want to stay for another dessert . . .
I look forward to seeing everyone next Wednesday.
