Message from the Principal ~ December Alumni & Friends Newsletter

 

At this year’s Valete dinner I wished our leaving residents farewell and good luck and said that I hoped Burgmann has played an important role in fostering lifelong friendships; that they will look back on this time fondly. When I think about what Burgmann is about and what this time in people’s lives is about, if I can offer anything, it would be this: Life is not defined by high distinctions or internships. They’re fine things, but they’re not, the thing. Life is defined by the strength and quality of your relationships, by the dedication to your purpose, and by the depth and genuineness of your service to others. It’s measured in the resilience you develop in the face of adversity and in the kindness you show to the people in your orbit. I think this is what Burgmann is all about. Read our December 2021 Alumni & Friends Newsletter.
