Dr. Sessoms Responds to Chile EarthquakeDr. Sessoms


We once again find ourselves staring at yet another world tragedy.  The earthquake in Chile over the weekend has killed hundreds and has sent our world community into a panic, wondering what we can do to help.  I invite you do all you can to support our friends in Chile by donating to the relief agency of your choice.  Instead of physical goods, consider money, which is desperately needed at this stage of the rescue and eventual recovery mission.  Also, keep up to date on the developments there by following the Red Cross website: www.redcross.org.

I want to commend our International Student Association for again showing leadership in the wake of this tragedy and beginning activities to support the victims.  As tragic as the events in Haiti and now Chile have been, it is heartening to see our community come together to assist people in need.

Thank you for your continued support.
