We haven’t spoken with Gina, but we’ve exchanged text and images by cellphone. I gave her a running text commentary from the crew banquet Saturday night. Last night at 12:22am EST I received this photo, so I guess she caught up with the West Coast Reeds!
Gina departed this morning for 8 day trip to northern California with a church youth mission trip. They’ll be staying a few nights at a congregational church mere blocks from brother Rick and family in Alameda! The youth will be learning about the homeless, providing some service, and also getting in some sightseeing.
Ouch. 2 of them are online programs. 51 faculty and staff, and 1,000+ students affected. The students will be given 2 years to complete their programs. We’ve postponed this action as long as possible. FSU and UF have previously announced cuts. State funding is drying up.
(what does it say that UCF went to youtube.com to distribute this video instead of our own resources?)
