University of Southern Maine President Glenn Cummings would like to wish all members of the USM community a safe, Happy Thanksgiving:
"With Thanksgiving just a couple days away, I wanted to take this chance just to say 'thank you' to all of you. First, to our faculty and staff for making 'Student Focused Every Day' a reality and going an extra mile for our students.
"Secondly, I want to say to our students: thank you for being with us at this University and learning with us and, also, you help us learn, too, and I want to say 'thank you' for that.
"Finally, I want to say, from our point of view, the community could not be better. I want to say 'thank you' to them for being able to help us in a number of ways, in partnerships and a variety of resources that make our University possible.
"And also I want to finish by telling you I’m very, very grateful to be here at this important time at our University and to be with all of you. I hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving and I wish you the very best."
