Letter: Sharing the honor
The “Exclamation point” editorial on the $1 million “gift” to the GCC Foundation in my name for the Nursing Program “Endowed Chair” didn’t happen because of me alone. This honor I share with people who either influenced, supported, encouraged and/or showed confidence in me, especially my students, at some point in my rewarding career as a person, a nurse and an educator. I believe I am so fortunate to have such a wonderful (extended) family, friends, GCC colleagues and loved ones who have given their “care” to me through the years. For these reasons and so many more I thank the anonymous donor for their magnificent gift and lasting legacy to Greenfield Community College.
