Dear friends of East Georgia State College,
I sent a brief message today to EGSC students ask each of them to do something for the East Georgia State College Bobcat family today. I asked them to send a message to a few EGSC students who they have not seen since the end of spring semester to let them know they are looking forward to seeing them on campus soon. I made a similar request of faculty and staff.
I told them that some of the friends they contact may be doing well and will simply enjoy the fact that another Bobcat thought of them today. I told them that 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. I told them that, although receiving a message may just be a nice end to the Memorial weekend for most, for one person it may be the thing that tips the scale in a positive direction.
You likely know a college student who would be helped by a contact from someone who believes in their future. It would be great if you would reach out to them.
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 plan for students, faculty and staff to be back on campus. It’s not that far away. We hope you will visit EGSC this fall.
In the meantime, stay healthy. Stay safe.
East Georgia State College
