To the facility workers, trainers, coaches, and faculty, and to my friends, siblings, parents, and extended family, I thank you for the past four years at Babson.
The school itself provides a great education with students from all over the globe year after year giving us each a platform to pursue our individual passions and goals that will bring value back to the world. Babson is an institute of academic rigor and lessons followed by years of value and success that each student will pioneer for themselves. We are fortunate at Babson to have this and is something we occasionally lose sight of in this small community, oftentimes overwhelmed with hard work, stress, and the anxieties of our aspirations.
However, thanks to the entire athletics body and the extracurriculars at this school, hundreds of students can push these negative and inhibiting factors away for the time being and realign their guiding compass. Athletics is more than just several minutes of intense physical and mental activity; there are lifelong relationships and lessons embedded in every form of sport. It is these relationships that drive individual willingness and provide a reason to work hard on the field, in the classroom, and in the workplace.
The interactions I have had between my coaches, friends, and teammates are what I enjoyed most and will cherish forever.
I thank you Babson for the past four years and the years to come.
