I can think of no better learning environment than the one we are building at Dougherty Family College. I am humbled to be able to learn and grow with such a powerful group of students and I am thrilled to be a part of this community. There is much work to do so we must get started; as the great Ella Baker said, “We who believe in freedom cannot rest.” I can’t wait to see what kind of world you will make!
