Dear friends and neighbors,
I might be the luckiest person in Madison. Let me tell you why.
Every day, I get to work with a remarkable group of staff and volunteers who inspire me with their dedication and willingness to do whatever it takes to serve the people of our community. When the coronavirus became an imminent threat to Wisconsin and the governor ordered all non-essential workers to stay home, GCC staff from all areas raised their hands to help where we needed them most. Immediately, we had teachers, administrative staff, facilities staff, managers and directors packing bags for our drive-thru food pantry or delivering meals to our neighbors.
In the last week, some of those same staff have shifted gears yet again to bring student and family support online with distance learning classes and virtual office hours.
Our entire team has met every challenge with the level of problem solving and grit that I sometimes take for granted. It is the GCC way, and I know it is exceptional. They are exceptional.
I hope you might take a few minutes to
share some words of encouragement with our team by replying to this email.
I’ll share every message with them.
Wishing you strength and good health,
