The two years have gone by so fast! As I prepare to leave Southwest Minnesota State University, I wanted to share some reflections and say thank you to all who have welcomed me into the community. The SMSU community and the Marshall community have been so kind and welcoming to me. I never felt like an outsider. The community has so many good things happening that I will watch from a distance with a smile. The successes that have been accomplished during my two-year tenure are a tribute to what can happen when individuals and organizations work together for the betterment of all.
