Dear UTSA friends,
Famous Texan and singer Willie Nelson once said, "When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around."
These words can offer some perspective and good cheer in times that are tough for many. At UTSA, we have had a very productive year and have accomplished a great deal. We continue to grow and develop despite many challenges, and it's because all of us are working together on campus and with the community.
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for our blessings. I'm thankful for and inspired by the many UTSA community members working to help make the world a better place. Thank you to everyone for your contributions to the community and to UTSA.
Harriett and I wish each of you a joyous and peaceful Thanksgiving. Please enjoy the company of your loved ones, have good cheer, be safe and take time to reflect on our blessings.
