President's Holiday Letter

Western Illinois University Faculty, Staff and Students:

The holiday season is a time to remember how fortunate we are to be a member of the Western Illinois University community and that we should try to find ways to help others. I thank everyone for their hard work that has resulted in all of our university's accomplishments, despite the immense challenges and economic constraints.

I would also like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the University community for your continued support. Elaine and I are thankful for the many friends we have made since joining the Western community eight years ago. It is an honor to serve as the president of Western Illinois University and to be a resident of Macomb.

I wish each of you a holiday season filled with health and happiness.
