A Message from the President regarding the Parkland shooting

February 15, 2018

Dear all,

I am writing to reflect on the tragic news of the high school shootings in Parkland, Florida yesterday. The shock, fear, and horror experienced by those directly affected by this act of senseless violence is unfathomable.

I hope we can all take the time today to pause, to be aware that those around us may be hurting more than we know, and treasure our moments together. Let us draw on one another to help us through these tough times. If I can be helpful, please reach out.

Elizabeth Bradley
President, Vassar College
