Thank You DSU Family

Dear DSU Family,

Thank you very much for each of your expressions of friendship and the kind acknowledgements last Friday. It was an honor serving as your first DEIT director. I fondly read every email, every card, and viewed every picture. There is so much of DSU I will take with me on this journey. I wish you God’s grace, good health, and Christ’s joy in your lives.

Fair thee well my friends!
