Willard Lives and Lives!



The same letters in the same order. But one is a verb and the other is a noun. Are they the same word? Maybe.

Today, I want us to think about both an action and a being. Willard is a place, with athletic facilities, dormitories, and nationally ranked dining halls and recreational facilities. Willard is also highly qualified and devoted administrators, students, support staff, and let me not fail to mention, faculty. But we are also a verb. Increasingly, “to Willard” means to take decisive action, without hang-wringing or worry.

Sincerely, Henry Cotton
