Letter from the President - College of Southern Idaho

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

On this snowy day before Thanksgiving, I received a note from a colleague reminding me of some important matters. Often, she suggested, we get caught up in the frenetic challenges of politics or perhaps we are run down by the late semester routine. The cooler weather and grayer skies add to this tableau for some of us. It is easy sometimes to forget the heart of this place and our absolute and vital connection to it.

She reminded me of the almost constant major and minor wonders that are part of this place. She writes, “I just wanted to share something with you at this time during which gratitude is primary on our minds. I am so thankful for the place I work, and the people I work with. Thank you for your part in making CSI such a wonderful home away from home. As I reflect back on the last 20 years of my work life, I can't imagine having had to labor elsewhere, probably because I have never wanted to be any place else. Sure, there have been days of frustration and weekends spent crawling out from beneath mounds of essays, but those memories are fleeting and have no real lasting impact because they are replaced by a reality in which almost every day I come to work I am happy, and almost every day I leave work am happy as well. The hours between my arrival and departure most often fill me, rather than drain me. Lucky I am.”

Lucky are we all!

My Best Wishes for safe travels, family and love.
