    Thank you, Louis, and good afternoon. I'm pleased to join you for your final meeting of the 2021-22 academic year and share a university update.

    This Senate diligently serves as the instrument through which the App State faculty considers and acts on university matters, and I appreciate your dedication to this important work. The end of the academic year is often a time for reflection, and I encourage you to take this opportunity to celebrate your many successes. Thank you for all you do for our students.

    Thank you so much for being here!

    Welcome to the groundbreaking for the Innovation District! I'd like to extend a very special welcome to the members of the General Assembly who made it possible for us to break ground on the long-envisioned project:

    • Senator Deanna Ballard;
    • Senator Ralph Hise;
    • Representative Kelly Hastings;
    • Representative Jason Saine; and
    • Representative Ray Pickett.

    Thank you all so much.

    Good morning. There is much to report today, and I appreciate your indulgence as I share some of the incredible progress and success we have had so far this year.

    Today marks the 800th day since we first began planning, preparing and responding to COVID.  I am so proud of how our staff, faculty and students came together as a community to persevere. Together we managed the most significant crisis our university has ever faced. While we certainly didn’t all agree at all times, we kept our focus on making data-driven decisions and our goal — always — was to do what was best for our students.
