Dear Member,

As March begins and we look toward welcoming the Spring, I hope your school year thus far has been rewarding. Keep in mind however, a successful semester is not just limited to lessons learned academically but also through the personal growth you’ve gained by enduring through times of uncertainty.

The NSLS understands that adjusting to isolated, virtual learning amid a global pandemic has been challenging. However, rest assured, you remain our priority, and we will continue to support the NSLS community by providing engaging programs with as much peer interaction as possible.

Remember, Springtime is a season of blooming in which the thawing of winter reveals newness that has developed in its wake. It is the perfect metaphor for embracing change and emerging as a stronger leader through adversity.

Hopefully, soon – post-pandemic, we'll return to "normal life," spending quality time, in-person with our family and friends. Until then, I encourage you to stay vigilant in taking care of yourself and adhering to health officials' pandemic safety recommendations.

Happy Spring!

Charles Knippen
