Re fl ec t ion
we’re together. All spring I have felt like I do onthe afternoon of graduation after the senior classabandons the campus — wistful, nostalgic, andeven a little melancholy.
“But when we dig a little deeper, we’re comforted
to remember that we are not alone. I’m reminded
of Ted Blain’s comment recently in an interview
with Luke Stone that ‘this place changes the people
in it more than the people change the place.’ That
is undoubtedly the case for me, and I reckon it’s
the case for the class of 2020, too. We know that
Woodberry and its values of character and integrity
dwell deeply in us, even when we’re not here.”
This spring, we were not here. And yet wherever
Woodberry students or alumni were during days
of lockdown and quarantine, and wherever they
are now, whether on our campus or across the
world, the brotherhood is found. •
