One hundred and seventy five years and One Revolution

One RevolutionWhat a birthday party for Williston in celebrating our 175th year, and what a message from Chris Waddell: “It’s not what happens to you, it’s what you do with what happens to you.” His inspirational address to Williston students and faculty was captivating and provided the perfect backdrop for our work as a community on identities.  I like the term Senator Cory Booker uses, “courageous empathy,” in talking about the need to walk in someone else’s shoes. We need more “courageous empathy” in this world, but if Williston students are any indication, we are taking steps in the right direction.
