Letter from the Chairman of the Board of Trustees
/// CHAIRMAN, ADRIAN COLLEGE, BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Dear Friends, When I became a member of the Adrian College Board of Trustees back in 2006, our institution’s resurgence into prosperity was only just beginning. None of us could foresee what the next several years would hold, but to attract more students, we would have to make significant improvements. Despite an unknown future, our administration remained optimistic — the College, after all, could only achieve what we believed it could achieve. Our “glass half full” culture served as our guiding light. Over the course of my past 11 years on the Board, Adrian College has doubled its total enrollment and tripled its endowment. I believe in this institution, and it is my pleasure to see its potential come to fruition.
“THIS INCREDIBLE SUCCESS STORY CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO THE UNDYING OPTIMISM OF THE STUDENTS, STAFF, ALUMNI, FACULTY, AND FRIENDS OF THE COLLEGE.”
This incredible success story can be attributed to the undying optimism of the students, staff, alumni, faculty and friends of the College — and for that, you all have my sincerest gratitude. I hope this synopsis of Adrian College’s recent accomplishments will fill you with confidence in its ability to achieve its goals. We have poured much into this “glass half full,” yet there remains room for so much more. Sincerely,
Patrick D. Farver
