A Message from the NCHE President

It’s Starting Again—Thinking Rightly about Trials

It’s starting again! Yes, indeed it was. It was 9:00 am on Thursday, June 2, 2016. Summer was finally here, and with it, the 2016 NCHE conference. In a mere one and a half hours as we excitedly looked out the front window of our car, we would be checking into the hotel, ready for three days filled with hard work, great speakers, fun and fellowship.

Rebooting

It’s the fall of 2015, the beginning of a new academic year. I trust you had a summer full of activities that took advantage of the great resources in NC, from our mountains to our beaches. I hope you were able to schedule an extended visit with family and friends. I hope you were able to read a good book and take in a summer blockbuster. I hope you were able to take a break from structured academics and that you were able to reboot.

Kevin’s Kluge: Behind the Scenes at the Thrive! Conference Teen Game Night

The annual conference, our thirty-first, just concluded. It was an exciting experience with wonderful opportunities, as usual. There were lots of things I did during the conference that left an impression on me. It was great hearing and interacting with our speakers and also participating in the graduation ceremony. I could tell you about having dinner with Steve and Jane Lambert of Five in a Row and hearing Steve tell jokes. I then accidently became the butt of several jokes as I revealed to everyone at the table that I don’t know enough about how catered meals work.
