LETTERS: President Nikkel says farewell

To the Editor:

On behalf of myself and my wife, Elaine, I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support of Tabor College during the time of my presidency. We all know that a healthy Tabor College results in a healthier Hillsboro community. A healthy community results in a healthier Tabor College. That we need each other is indisputable.

As Tabor College enters its centennial year in 2008, I am excited about the future. The new college president, Dr. Jules Glanzer, will have a different style with his own unique sense of priorities and a passion to make Tabor College the best that it can be. Thank you for receiving us graciously when we came. I know that you will do the same for Jules and his wife, Peggy, when they arrive.

In the years to come, nothing would please me more than to see the city of Hillsboro and Tabor College both thriving.

On a more personal note, I also want to thank you for your expressions of concern and support during the time of my heart attack and surgery earlier this year. To be a part of a caring community is a valuable gift.

Larry W. Nikkel, President

Tabor College
