Dear East Georgia State College Faculty and Staff,
I am writing to ask each of you to do something for the East Georgia State College Bobcat family today. Could you send a message to a few of your EGSC students who you have not seen since the end of spring semester to let them know you are looking forward to having them return to campus this fall to earn their degree? I am sending a similar request to students today asking them to reach out to other students.
Some of the students you contact may be doing well and will simply enjoy the fact that someone from the college remembers them and is concerned about their future. Others are likely to be going through a tough time due to the coronavirus. Family members and close friends of theirs may have lost jobs. Others may have people close to them who are very sick. They may be fearful about their future. They may feel isolated. Hearing from you may just be a nice end to the Memorial weekend. But for one student, it may be the thing that tips the scale in a positive direction.
I hope you had a good Memorial Day. Joyce and I spent the day working at home on a college project and thinking about fall when we all plan to be back on campus together. It’s not that far away.
Until then, stay healthy. Stay safe.
East Georgia State College
