Word of the Week:  TOGETHER

For the month of February, our theme will be “Together”. As the spring semester gets underway, remember that you are not alone in your struggle to succeed. Your faculty, staff, administrators and fellow classmates are here to support you. This month, the newsletter will share several noteworthy quotes based on the concept of working together.  Consider this quote from Henry Ford:
Coming together is a beginning;
Keeping together is progress;
Working together is success.

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Dr. Holiday-Goodman
