OCC's summer session is well under way, and it's gotten off to a great start. This week, as we celebrate our nation's founding, I want to thank you for your hard work and commitment to students, as well as your support of the College's mission. As Thomas Jefferson once wrote: "Wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government." As our Founding Fathers recognized, education is the cornerstone of democracy.
As many of you are aware, our campus slows down during the summer months, with many employees taking the opportunity to go on vacation. I appreciate everyone's efforts to work together to provide support to the students on campus during this time, and to provide the same high quality education that OCC is known for.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Fourth of July, that you enjoy your holiday with family and friends, and that you return reinvigorated and ready to transform lives through education.
