One of the greatest privileges of working for the university is the opportunity to see firsthand how your gifts transform lives, one at a time. Each scholarship student I meet is as amazing as the two featured in this issue of Focus.

I hope reading about these terrific young people reinforces your feeling of optimism for the future. The joy and sense of shared accomplishment that we feel in celebrating the graduating class of 2021 is a cherished rite of spring.

Looking ahead, we are planning a joint reunion this fall for the classes of 1970 and 1971, scheduled for Homecoming Weekend October 28–30. Save the date!

On behalf of our gift planning team, here’s wishing you a lovely, healthy summer.
