Welcome back! I hope that everyone had a restful and relaxing Spring Break…with some fun mixed in! We are glad that you are back and that you are on the final stretch of this spring semester. I encourage you to “Finish Strong” as you work through these last weeks of the term and move into the week of finals. You are almost there!
What does it take to finish strong? It takes commitment and a positive sense of purpose every step of the way. Many people start strong—with lots of enthusiasm. The key is maintaining that enthusiasm throughout the journey. You are nearing the goal, and many of you are nearing the completion of your credential—getting your tassel. Remember…the person who completes the race does not slow down, but speeds up, when nearing the end. When the challenges become more difficult, the winning response is to become more determined.
You have started strong; now, stay strong, and finish strong by always remembering why you’re doing it in the first place.
Have a great rest of the semester, and remember…Get the Tassel!
