Dear Loyola community,
I headed into the weekend a bit apprehensive. In my new job as interim provost, I now welcome students and families to 4 honors convocations and a hooding ceremony, play an important role in Baccalaureate Mass, and serve as emcee for two commencement ceremonies---all with my Spanish accent. Public speaking is one of my biggest fears. I wanted everything to be perfect — or as perfect as anything can be — for the enjoyment of our graduates and their families. And it was.
