End of year reflections

By François Ortalo-Magné

As we mark Congregation Week, it feels like a good moment to reflect on another packed year. It is exciting to feel the buzz on campus as we prepare to welcome our graduates and their families to the School. This week’s celebrations are a culmination of so much hard work and dedication. Please accept my utmost gratitude for your many contributions.

We have accomplished some great things this year – a few highlights I mentioned at last week’s School Meeting. If you weren’t able to attend, the video is here.

I hope that you will have the chance take a break over the summer, enjoy time with family and friends and the warmer weather. Sondra and I are looking forward to visiting my family in France later this month, before heading over to the US in August. We managed to find one week at Sondra’s parents’ in Colorado where we can be together with our children, Chloé and Benoît, while allowing them to complete their summer internships – some of you might appreciate the irony in that Benoît’s computer engineering internship is with John Deere.

Sondra and I wish you a great summer.
