It is the time in academia that we turn our attention to end-of-year activities—Academy Graduation (Saturday, May 29), College Commencement (Saturday, May 8), and other events associated with both entities. It is hard to imagine these in-person events are coming so soon.
As importantly, our Founders Day celebration (Friday, April 23) allows us to celebrate the ways our history and mission are one. We will hear from an alumna with deep roots in our history—Elizabeth D. Baird C’83, whose words of wisdom and reflection will, I know, honor our past and ignite our future. We hope you will join us, together with the Academy and College, as we do so.
As we celebrate, we honor, as well, your generosity in supporting the Spring for Salem giving day last week, the many ways all of you support our students, and the work of so many behind the scenes making Salem what it is and building toward tomorrow and our next 250. Please join us in posting on social media, reaching out to potential students, opening doors to new friends whether corporate or personal, and continuing to move us forward.
Both the Academy and College are committed to creating and sustaining leaders. You show us how. And, you connect us to our future.
