Living with Intention

It sounds simple, but it really isn’t.  Trying to figure out your vision and what you want to do and who you to be is the one thing that will anchor everything else you do.  Once you obtain this vision; your life will become intentional and trust me, you will achieve your dreams.  Defining vision and passion are tough tasks; but once these two things fall in place you will have the other answers.  And once you know who you are; you will attract the same kinds of successful people and you will begin to have clarity about your life’s purpose.  College can be the start of living with intention; if you are lucky enough to have the support of good friends, instructors and you are willing to work on your vision.

An Irish Blessing

I am in Ireland this week and wanted to leave you with an Irish Blessing:

May those that love us, love us

May those that don’t love us,

May God turn their hearts, and if he can’t turn their hearts,

May he turn their ankles,

So we will know them by their limping!


Enjoy your week and stay healthy.


ATEC Building

A few people are asking about ATEC and how it is coming along.  Here is what I can tell everyone:  We met with the  with architects, state engineers, etc. on Thursday, October 4 and it will go out for bid on October 17th

    • EDA :  Approved our changes
    • Square footage went from 26,000 to 24, 090 square foot
    • Lecture and Multiple use hall: 175 seating to 168 seats
    • We will need a variance not to do paving on sides and back parking lots
    • Building will have PEMB (pre-engineering metal building construction)
    • The cupola over the main building will remain intact
    • Exterior brick that is decorative will match what is used on the campus currently
    • Base bid on the building is $6.8 million with $7.1 alternates that includes lean to, paving, greenhouse, cooler
    • This does not include Furniture ($400K and Architectural fees $600K)

And probably the biggest news….. we only need around $400,000 more to have costs covered.  That is awesome to realize how lucky we are at EWC.  Our support has been tremendous!
