Lindsay SewardAs President of the Eckerd College Alumni Association and on behalf of Eckerd College alumni everywhere, I'd like to welcome you to our alma mater and thank you for sharing this very special occasion with us.

Today we are celebrating 50 years of this life-changing place, a place that has given so many the knowledge, confidence and support to live lives of meaning and purpose. The transformative effective of Eckerd College is a testament not only to our founders and the many Eckerd heroes from the College's history, but to our current faculty, staff, alumni and students.

It is the people of Eckerd College that transform lives and I am honored to be a part of that legacy and this celebration today. Thank you.
