This has been such a great week for me and alumni. Branden has a play being produced. Aaron is struggling with questions of life—in a good way. Maria is also struggling, but happy. Kevin looks good—he lost weight, has an associate’s degree and a plan! Carson. Well, Carson is Carson. Kristen is my colleague and a thoughtful individual. Lauren is on the road.
I witness the struggle, the growth, the meaning in life. I know it sounds sappy and cliché (it would never do in a college essay) but I am privileged to watch these young people grow.
