President's letter of condolences

Dear Carolina Family,

Although the arrival and promise of spring is imminent, we find we are, once again, dealing with untimely and tragic loss within our community. Patricia and I are deeply concerned by such difficult news and by the tremendous sense of sadness that it brings to our campus.

During the days and weeks ahead, I would like to ask each of you to make an extra effort to reach out to one another. Please lend a listening ear and a generous heart to those who are experiencing sorrow and grief. And let us take time to reflect on how we can come together, individually and collectively, to apply the guiding principles of Stand Up Carolina to strengthen and protect our community. 

I offer my personal condolences and prayers for the families who are grieving. May our compassion relieve a small part of their burden.  

Take care,

Harris Pastides
