Members of the Randolph community came together last week for the College’s day of caring, called #VitaStrong, through a series of virtual events that celebrated both Earth Day and National Poetry Month.
Events included livestreams by Allison Brooks ’18, Randolph’s sustainability coordinator; Karin Warren, environmental studies professor; Gary Dop, English professor and director of Randolph’s M.F.A. program; Chris Gaumer, assistant director of the M.F.A. program; and a musical performance by philosophy professor Sara Beck. All were posted to Randolph Memories, the Facebook page for the Annual Fund.
“Because of the love and dedication of our wonderful Randolph College community, on April 22 we showed the world how #VitaStrong we truly are,” said Tamara Jamerson, director of the Annual Fund. “To everyone who gave and shared this message of caring, thank you for your commitment to keeping us #VitaStrong for many years and generations to come.”
The livestreams and videos of faculty and staff presenters received thousands of views, and nearly $20,000 was raised for the Annual Fund to support students and faculty as they continue to learn and teach online, Jamerson said.
