Dear Alumni,

We applaud your resilience. It takes hard work, long hours, and personal motivation to complete a degree. Add full-time jobs, volunteer work, and families into the mix, and there’s no doubt that your success is a remarkable journey of dedication. As I talk with you on the phone and at regional events, I am continually impressed by both what you’ve achieved and by the challenges you’ve overcome along the way.

In this issue of Walden magazine, you will find the inspiring stories of several alumni who found strength and courage to change the world around them through education. One graduate left behind an environment of illiteracy and abuse to become a national expert on family violence counseling. Another, a mother who tragically lost her daughter through suicide, became a vocal advocate for suicide awareness. Both journeys were unquestionably difficult but clearly demonstrate resilience and how personal tragedies can fuel positive collective movements.

We encourage you to continue sharing your stories as changemakers. Your experiences and accomplishments demonstrate the passion and mission of our Walden community. Your courage to turn ordeals into opportunities to change your world is worth celebrating, and we thank you for choosing us to be a part of your journey.

Warmest Regards,

Valescia Lee-Collick
Director, Alumni Relations
