* REFLECTIONS: Movie Night – Thank you those who came and enjoyed “The Blind Side” with popcorn and other refreshments. As the academic year comes to a close, it was a great time to catch up and relax. Also, the movie inspires us to overcome setbacks, reach out in kindness to others, and excel in what we do!
