‘Thank You’ Message from Heidi Migliori
Words cannot express the gratitude that I have in my heart for the people who care so much about others that they work with. The cards and letters that have offered support and prayers during this difficult time for our family has been overwhelming. We have been blessed by your words and prayers of comfort. Thank you all very much for your kindness, generosity, support, and attendance at Timothy’s funeral. The Lord has made us strong and we are grateful to all the loving arms that he has shared with us during this time.

Our video team will be roaming the campus over the next few weeks taking footage of our happy NWACC folks, faculty, staff, and students. Participation is voluntary, but we hope that everyone will show us some moves! If you want to organize a group and schedule a time to have your video clip made, contact Aimee Crawford at email@example.com. The finished video will be shown at the Fall Forum.
