A Story That Matters

A year or two after I started, Deb, Dennis and I were putting the agenda together for Forum. They wanted to do something uplifting and special. They mentioned a set of videos that the College presented to all employees years ago, called “Celebrate What’s Right with the World.” DeWitt Jones, long time decorated photographer of National Geographic, took what he knew of the world, combined with his positive look-at-the-world-in-a-positive-fashion point of view and created a series of videos. We showed the initial video at the January Forum, and continued a year of ‘celebration’ showing succeeding videos at the next three Forums, bringing the year to a close when we sponsored the final video at our first Forum at the Henry Doorly Zoo.

This initiative was so successful, the College continued that mindset, of Celebrating What’s Right. I believe this initiative helped people be in a place in which You Matter was a natural next step. This is the place I work. This is why I continue to work here. Every day we try to celebrate what is right with the world! -Cathy Beck
