As we rush toward winter break each year, I like to take a few moments to reflect on the many highlights of the fall semester and anticipate the holiday season.
For Robbie and me and our institution’s many donors and friends, a high point of the semester was the series of events to kick off the public phase of It’s Personal: The Campaign for Bloomsburg University.
The gifts we have received and continue to receive as we head toward our $50 million goal will enhance our students’ experiences today and in the future. To all who have a personal connection with our outstanding university, I say “thank you."
Another fall highlight occurred very late in the semester when we welcomed our new director of external and government relations, Dan Knorr ’07. Most recently, Dan was the Borough of Danville’s administrator of government affairs, but many will remember him from his term as mayor of Bloomsburg.
In his new position, Dan is monitoring legislation and public policy, seeking opportunities for state and federal funding and economic development, and building relationships. He fills a vacancy created by Jim Hollister’s retirement.
Then there is the highlight still to come for all of us: gathering with family and friends at this special time of year for rest, relaxation and renewal. Robbie and I wish you peace and happiness during this festive season and in the year ahead.
