President Leonard has done a phenomenal job this first month.
His presence on campus has been invigorating. He has won many of the faculty to his side with his series of meetings last week. He listens to coaches and they feel supported. He went to Greensburg and dug beside the students. He went bowling with the RAs. He has done many things well.
Here's where you expect a but - a disclaimer of some sort that allows me to offer a critique.
I have no critique.
Tomorrow Dr. Leonard addresses the whole of the faculty, the staff, the student body and as many of the community as want to be there in the first Convocation of his Presidency.
I'm pulling for him. I hope he continues the trend and - to mix a metaphor - hits one out of the park.
