Back to

The President's Post
Welcome back for another semester! I hope that you had a joyous and family-filled holiday and that you are rested and ready for the challenges of a new millennium. Shereé and I were on the road for most of the break, and we were anxious to return to campus and to see all of you again.
    We also returned to Ozarks with some great sadness. One of the best friends of this University, Dr. Alvin C. Broyles, lost a courageous battle to cancer on January 12, 2000. Dr. Broyles was a 1941 alumnus of Ozarks and a lifetime member of the Board of Trustees. He generously gave his time and resources to this campus, and he had a great love for students. Dr. Broyles cared dearly about education, being educated, and educating others. Many of us currently on campus have benefited from his support, encouragement, and wisdom.
    I have never, in all my years in education, met a person who was more proud to be an alumnus of a school than Dr. Broyles was to be an alumnus of Ozarks. His loyalty to this campus is an example for all of us.
    The next time you enter the Chapel or the Science Building, please pause for a moment and whisper a special word of thanks to Dr. Broyles. I know he will hear you.

Dr. Rick Niece
