Monday Mission, 6/14/10

A few sentences from a note to our faculty in the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing, from a May graduate in anesthesia:

 

 You all have become family over the past 28 months. I am so very thankful for your prayers, support, and encouragement. You may never understand the impact that you have made on my life. As I was driving away after graduation, my wife said, "You couldn't have possibly graduated from a better program." You all brought out the best in me!  Each of you planted a seed in me that will continue to grow!

 

The world is better because the members of our faculty give their best to their students--and they demand the best from them.
