  • Welcome to interactive media, albeit a bit old school.
    Earlier this week, I was at a meeting where we discussed what ties you to your school. The question isn’t rhetorical. I really want to know.
    I don’t care if it was when you were in school or now that your kids or grandkids are in school, what is it that makes you fond of the place?
    I really want the answer and will give you several ways to tell me. I would also like to know if you don’t have that tie or fondness and what caused it to become that way?
    I don’t want to tell you my thoughts, but I’m interested to know if they are similar.
