Happy Spring Semester! I hope the first few weeks have gone smoothly for you. We have so many important events happening this spring. So, I’d like to start by thanking all the faculty, staff, and students who helped make Extreme Registration so successful! We hit another milestone this semester, welcoming over 7,488 students - that’s a 7% increase over last spring. At this point, our total unduplicated student headcount for 2017-2018 is approximately 11,611. Final numbers will be posted at the end of the semester.

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, I’m thinking about all the things I’m thankful for: my supportive family, being part of the Clovis family, and working to make a difference in our community. Our Clovis colleagues are active in several community service projects, such as this Saturday’s Habitat for Humanity build. I’m looking forward to joining a group of CCC faculty, staff, and students to help build a new home for a local Clovis family.

We are halfway through our semester and it’s starting to feel like Fall! I love the crisp air in the mornings, the changing colors of the leaves, and the annual tradition of Pumpkin Spice lattes! I’m also looking forward to my second annual early-morning excursion to watch the beautiful hot air balloons kick off ClovisFest. If you haven’t seen them, it is truly amazing to watch the colorful balloons take off against the morning sky.

As I celebrate my first anniversary with Clovis Community College, I can honestly say I am still honored and delighted be part of this amazing college community.

So, join me in remembering several of our key accomplishments.
