Chancellor's messages

  • Tuesday, September 29, 2020

    Dear Faculty, Staff, Students, Parents, and Families,

    It is with the deepest sadness that I share with you that one of our students, Chad Dorrill, has died.

    The hearts of the entire Appalachian Community are with Chad’s family and loved ones during this profoundly difficult and painful time. Tributes shared by friends and loved ones show the positive impact Chad had on the communities he loved and called home, which included App State and Boone.

    Good morning and welcome to our board members and to Governor Byers, who are joining us in the room today as well as those who are joining via Zoom.

    I’d like to begin by thanking Chair Blackburn for his exceptional leadership of this board during an extraordinary two years for App State. John, thank you for your dedication to our students, faculty and staff. I believe I can speak for everyone present when I say our appreciation of your dedication, service and leadership will continue long beyond your chairmanship of this board. Thank you.

    I’d also like to recognize and thank Rob Gelber and his AppTV team for broadcasting today’s meeting. Our students are gaining important, real-world experience with today’s live broadcast, and I really appreciate their work, and Rob’s leadership.

    It is anything but a typical September in Boone, but I am very pleased to say we do have students on campus making the very best out of their extraordinary challenges.

    As I reflect on my comments to you at this time a year ago, it is hard to fathom how much has changed since last September.

    I want to begin by saying thank you to our faculty.

    We are in day two-hundred-and-thirty-seven of campus planning for COVID-19, and day one-hundred-ninety-nine of formal coordinated preparedness, response and recovery efforts. In my weekly messages, as well as the weekly operations updates, we share with campus and the families of our students the latest information about our continued campus response, planning and recovery efforts. 

    Each week of the Fall 2020 semester we complete is a significant accomplishment. Since March, we have re-envisioned, re-imagined and re-defined the university experience at App State. In the last six months, we have had to re-create what took those who came before us more than 120 years to develop. This effort has been nothing short of superhuman for both our staff and our faculty.
