Side by side

Two trees growing

Branches intertwined

On separate journeys

Yet woven together

What are these trees?

Our students

Our colleagues

Our family members

Our friends

Our acquaintances 

All of the above

We are on a journey of growth. And at times, our paths are intertwined. Many times that leads to opportunities to lift each other up, to bear one another's burdens, to hold a hand, to challenge one another, to touch a heart, and to make a difference.

As you grow and your branches extend in a variety of directions, 
allow the wind to blow but not to break you,
allow other branches to cross your path and guide you,
allow yourself to keep reaching wider and higher,
and stand tall and strong against the obstacles that try to bend you.
