It is my great pleasure to lead and to serve Salem Academy, an extraordinary intellectual community that is distinguished by its Moravian heritage. Guided by these traditions, we recognize the importance of rigorous education in the arts and sciences for women of all backgrounds and experiences; we celebrate diversity; and we affirm each student’s potential to contribute to good in the world. All who choose to study here and invest in Salem are expressing a belief in the value of intellectual curiosity, the acquisition of knowledge, the development of leadership skills, and the application of these skills in the service of the local community and the world at large.
It is a tremendous privilege and honor to continue my second year as president with you. I very much look forward to getting to know each of you and to sharing in your quest for knowledge, your commitment to service, and to Salem Academy. As active participants in the Salem community we are members of the oldest and best women’s educational institution in the country.
