There are many uncertainties that face our Rust College Family as we confront this challenging time. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage the world, especially impacting African Americans and other communities of color. Also, society finally appears to be willing to begin the process of changing its position on the long-standing racial injustice that African Americans have endured for centuries. The heaviness of this global weight is real. Yet, to get through this, our Rust College Family must pull tightly together for strength and encouragement. This too shall pass!
