    I am very pleased to have been a part of your exploration and development at Bates. You truly have been an exceptional individual and a terrific example of how an institution like Bates can help nudge a student toward bigger and better things, whatever “things” they happen to be. An old Chinese proverb states that teachers open the door, but students still must walk through them. You walked through every door that was opened for you. It will be exciting to see what you ultimately do with your life. Go forward and do great things knowing what we at Bates College will always be rooting for you.
