Keeping Bobcats Informed Parents & Families, Oct. 1, 2020

Bobcat Parents and Families,

I have been continually impressed by how our students are using their voices to create a country and a culture they can feel proud of. Regardless of your political ideals or affiliations, I think we can all agree that teaching our children about the importance of being informed, civically engaged human beings is among the greatest investments we can make in our future. After all, this nation will be in their hands before long. Please join me in leading by example and voting this fall, and talking to your Bobcat about the issues on the ballot this year. They are listening more than you know!

Best,

Jenny Hall-Jones
Senior Associate Vice President
Dean of Students
