The Economic Environment and Our Response

This past week has been a roller coaster with our country’s debt structure, credit rating, and stock market. The Strategic Leadership Team (SLT) and I are evaluating the potential impact this uncertainty may have on the College, and we are generating ideas and options about how to proceed if we need to change course (i.e. investment strategies, enrollment implications, etc.).  If you have any ideas you want the SLT to consider, please let me know.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you had a wonderful three-day weekend and an outstanding holiday! I have to admit that I love all holidays, but Independence Day is always at the top of my list. I love the flags along the streets, the fireworks, and the patriotism. One of the traditions that I love most occurs at my church on the Sunday closest to July 4th. On this day, we celebrate with a medley of the songs associated with the Armed Forces, and those who served in each branch come forward as their song is played and sung. I don’t recall a year (and this year was no different) when I haven’t had tears in my eyes as enlisted soldiers and veterans come forward to the front rail to be recognized. To each of our military men and women at San Jacinto College, I thank you for your service to our country and to each of us. While you may not hear it often, your sacrifice and service are truly appreciated and admired! The 4th of July is about freedom, and I hope all of you celebrated it with family and friends!
