Message from Dr. Belinda S. Miles – October 2, 2015
Dear Campus Community,
Yesterday I heard the news about another mass shooting, this time at a community college in Oregon. Even on this day of jubilation celebrating my inauguration as president of Westchester Community College, I cannot help but to feel loss and sorrow over the lives lost and those injured at Umpqua Community College. It is hard to think about what the victims, families, and community members must be going through today. It is harder still knowing that this tragedy struck another community college. This is a difficult time for all Americans as we come together to cope with another mass shooting.
As we go about this special day celebrating Westchester Community College, its legacy, and its bright future ahead, please take a moment to remember everyone at Umpqua Community College whose lives are affected by this horrible incident.
Dr. Belinda S. Miles
