A short note while waiting for spring …

If you’re tired of making snow angels, raise your hand.

Okay, who’s ready for spring break? I am! I’m also ready for warmer weather. Enough of this winter! Do you have spring fever yet? Are you ready for the St. Louis Cardinals? The first spring training game is Thursday. Let’s get ready to root for our hometown team!

The last few weeks have been busy. As most of you know, the district chancellor search committee was busy picking candidates to forward for interviews. I hope you take time out to go to the campus open forums and ask questions. Your opinion does count.

March is Women’s History Month and Florissant Valley is celebrating in a big way! Thanks go to Janice Nesser-Chu and WHM committee for putting together a calendar full of events sure to inspire and spark conversation. The month kicks off TODAY with “Telling our Stories/Impacting Our Communities: The Moms of Cold Water Creek and FV SEED Students Speak Out,” and a Celebration Circle. Please check the schedule listed above to check out these events.

On March 4, Cecelia Nadal, founder and Executive Director of Gitana Productions Inc., will give the Women’s History Month Keynote Address. Gitana Productions Inc. is an arts and education organization that uses music, dance, drama and education as vehicles for bringing diverse groups together in acceptance and mutual understanding. She will speak from 9:30 to 11 a.m. in the Terry M. Fischer Theatre.

This past Saturday found us “Falling in Love in Five Courses.” I enjoyed attending the event and talking with community members who know and appreciate the value of St. Louis Community College. I was seated with Michael McMillan, president and CEO of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis. He is a big champion and supporter of the work we do. I find this encouraging, especially now with all the talk about community colleges. We need as many champions as we can handle. We were also well represented by our students, Bradley Rayford and Kyle Lackey.
