Three distanced Vikings signed letters of intent to play intercollegiate athletics last week. Congrats to Megan K '21 (Fordham) Sean R '21 (Tufts) and Kelly W '21 (Duke). Can’t wait to see your success in college!
By now, I imagine you’re all saturated from the flood of communications across channels dissecting the election results and predicting the ultimate outcome, and I want to acknowledge the stress that many of us are feeling now. I hope we can all find some calm refuge from the anxiety and anger that have been storming around us.
This is an election in which many hard-won rights and protections are at stake. Vistamar represents a deep and foundational commitment to equity and inclusion and the belief that each member of our community has value and dignity. The rights and protections we uphold at our school and in our community in general may affect each of us differently, but, for many, their safety and their future are at stake, and this should concern each of us. Any reduction of those rights and protections, is also a reduction in our ability to provide opportunity to grow and become better than who we were and to make a difference for others.
