A Thanksgiving Message

November 26, 2015

To the JU Community,

Today as we celebrate Thanksgiving with friends and family, I want to take a moment to offer my gratitude to our extended JU family – students, faculty, staff and alumni – for the energy, enthusiasm and cooperation that has made this past year so very successful for our University. What an honor to work with such a committed group of individuals as we envision new ways to keep JU moving forward. The spirit of improvement and dedication to excellence has been truly inspiring.

It can sometimes be too easy for us to take for granted the country in which we live, which provides us the very opportunity we have during this holiday to gather peacefully with our loved ones -- a situation brought into sharp focus in recent weeks with the extraordinary challenges facing others in so many regions of our world.

Thank you for all you do to help Jacksonville University on its continued path of progress, and have an enjoyable, safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
