President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

May seems to have been a whirlwind month. There are multiple sociopolitical events transpiring throughout the nation. 

I remain steadfast that we will find the strength and the will to be united as a country - regardless of race, education, geography or political leanings. That we can have the decency to have respectful discourse. That we find the moral fortitude to do the hard things for the common good. That we can extend an arm to our fellow human being. 

As the new day dawns, know that the strength is in you to do the decent thing.
