As I taught on the La Verne campus for 21 years and remain a scholarship donor, I am very saddened to see this beautiful campus mired in hate. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal described the leadership philosophy of Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court:
2. Give a little
3. Walk away from stupid fights
4. Decide and be firm.
5. Be grateful and show it.

Many of our students are and will be leaders, and this wisdom will serve them well. Without understanding and loving each other, growing and learning does not occur. La Verne students can do anything they want and I know they will change the world!
