My time as a Mayville State University employee is nearing an end. Because so much has happened in the past 42 years, reflecting on specific memories is difficult. Most of my memories center on people rather than accomplishments or situations. I am most grateful that Debbie and I found a home in a community that accepted us and fully supported the institution where I would eventually spend so much time working. Over the years, the number of students, employees, community members, and alumni who we have grown to care for has grown exponentially. It is hard to believe that one person could be so thoroughly blessed.

March 12 to 16 is spring break at Mayville State University. This means that many students headed for home, or maybe to warm and sunny places for rest and relaxation. Others, however, stayed on campus and in town so they could work at their jobs and find other things to do closer to their Mayville State home.
