Happy Thanksgiving

As I prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m reminded of so many things I’m thankful for here at UIS.  Our outstanding students, faculty and staff remind me daily that UIS is a premier public university. For example, last week, two UIS employees, Keith McMath and Scott Fay were recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense for their support of members of the National Guard and military reserves.   They went the extra mile to provide assistance to a student being deployed to Afghanistan.  Keith and Scott are just two examples of the fact that leadership is lived here every day.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
