November 16 Update – A Special Thank You

A Message from President Don Green:

Dear GHC Community,

I am constantly reminded of the amazing spirit of our students, faculty, and staff. Nothing about taking classes, teaching courses, or providing a wide range of student-focused tools has been easy this past year. And yet our students have pushed forward with our faculty and staff to work toward degree completion at GHC.

Although this may not have been exactly how we imagined celebrating the college’s 50th anniversary year, I want to detail how incredible you all have been and how each of you overcoming great obstacles absolutely commemorates GHC’s golden anniversary by symbolizing everything our college stands for.

To every GHC student, thank you! Your persistence to complete amid the challenges of COVID-19 this year is a statement to your determination, ability, and overall commitment to taking charge of the future. We are all proud of our students, some who have received national attention, and our student organizations who show time and again that any setback is temporary.

To GHC’s faculty and staff, thank you! From our very first graduate to every student we work with now, GHC has always been known for its mission to help every student succeed. This year, you have worked to optimize GHC’s options for students with innovative curriculum and a focus on local workforce needs. And you have worked to make in-person classes both safe and effective while additionally providing new and exciting ways for students to interact with GHC from wherever they are.

As we enter the season of giving and of giving thanks, I want to express my gratitude to every student, faculty member, and staff member at GHC. Your hard work never goes unnoticed. Thank you so much for making GHC a wonderful place to learn, grow, and work.

Please enjoy a safe and happy holiday, and as we return after the upcoming Thanksgiving break to wrap up the fall semester, please also join me in continuing to follow our campus guidelines to ensure we continue to stop the spread of COVID-19 while working toward degree completion at GHC.
