This year’s Annual Report is about impact – the immense effect a gift can have in the life of an individual student and their story.
Fall in the mangrove marsh:
the water gives, thickens with fish
creating more crimson, more rosy spoon bills.
Behind shuttered windows, winds
howl and take away pieces of your life.
When you rebuild, you understand giving
and creating are the same.
Like the Atlantic’s soft
susurrus, it’s a sound that soothes
like the warmth — year round.
