GREETINGS
Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Philadelphia,
I have looked forward eagerly to the start of each school
year, but nothing compares to my excitement about our
return to campus this fall after nearly a year and a half of
operating online due to COVID-19.
Our students, faculty, and staff members have managed the
challenges of being away from campus with extraordinary
creativity and good will, but we are deeply grateful to be
back together again, learning and working side by side as the fall semester opens.
I would like to congratulate the more than 600 students who finished their programs
over the past year and celebrated their accomplishments at our June drivethrough
graduation events. As new graduates, they are joining the health care
profession at a time when their skills and compassion are needed more than ever.
I would also like to offer a warm welcome to the more than 2,000 students who
will begin or continue their health care education with us this fall. We look
forward to a wonderful year ahead!
With my best wishes,
Mary Grace Simcox, President
