Dr. Kyle Marrero, Seventh President of UWG Thankfulness
November 2014


It’s almost Thanksgiving. As we prepare to enjoy time with the family, time to relax and, of course, leftovers, let’s all take a few moments to reflect on the things we’re grateful for. I’ll start.

1.) Cooler weather -- I realize I mentioned this last month, but it bears repeating. My runs are far more enjoyable in the crisp fall air and so are walks across campus.

2.) Coach Will Hall’s first year – not just for the amazing success of our Wolves football team, but for the energy and support surrounding the games.

3.) An engaged community – our alliances and partnerships within the community and the region are critical to our success.

4.) Amazing colleagues –UWG faculty and staff are some of the best in the nation. Their earnest efforts to help UWG become the best place to work, learn, and succeed inspire me every day.

5.) Robust participation in our first quarterly Best of the West divisional awards and recognition – I have been thrilled to see colleagues eager to acknowledge each other and look forward to more of the same!

And you? What are you thankful for?
