I can hardly believe it, but today marks six months on the job as chancellor of the University of Mississippi. The first part of 2016 has been a whirlwind of getting to know the great people of this amazing university and the transformational role you all play in education, innovation, health care and community engagement.
It’s a good summer to be an Ole Miss Rebel! We have nine — count them nine! — members of the Ole Miss family across three sports in Rio de Janeiro. What a great milestone for our university, as this is the most Rebels ever at any single Olympic games. Some unique bragging rights and I couldn’t be more proud of our #RebsInRio as they get ready to compete on the world’s largest stage — and rep Rebel Nation — in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
