This time of year, as the leaves change and fall away, we are reminded that change is natural and happens all around us.That's also true at your Hometown University.We are in the midst of an exciting season of growth and change!Recent developments that I am pleased to share with you include welcoming the U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Eric Shinseki, to campus; opening the Galesi Family Student Success Center, which provides a central location that will help position our students for success in their years at Averett and beyond; and announcing a partnership with Danville Regional Medical Center (DRMC) to explore the possibility of extending quality nursing programs in the region.I am also very excited to tell you of a recently-announced generous pledge from one of our Trustees to Averett's autism program.Our goal is to now match this gift, which will fund hiring a Director of Autism Studies, and grow this important program!
