T
hough many of you
have taken a variety of
opportunities to meet me
and hear me speak, this
publication of
Nardin Today
provides
me my first opportunity to write to
you. As the pages of this magazine
turn, I hope each of us might turn
over and over again the prisms of
our mental kaleidoscopes either to
relive the journeys of a Nardin Academy education already traveled
or to envision the promise of amazing journeys yet to be revealed
to its most recent members. Consuelo and I gratefully count
ourselves among these.
In this new chapter of Nardin Academy’s history, opportunities
stretch out before students to develop skills and integrated
knowledge that will ready them to explore worlds as of yet
unknown. As author Lillian Smith wrote, “…no journey carries
one far unless, as it extends into the world around us, it extends
an equal distance into the world within.” It’s that same world
view of education that calls so many to Nardin Academy; it’s that
same world view, rooted in the charism of the Daughters of the
Heart of Mary, that cuts the paths of our collective educational
journey into the world of Nardin Academy, the world of the City
of Buffalo, and the world stretching far beyond. Fortified for the
journey by the developed skills of character, creativity, critical
thinking, collaboration, and communication, we travelers endeavor
to perform “amazing things for the world” in the tradition of the
DHM.
Enjoy the worlds within worlds revealed in this issue of Nardin
Today. Help us continue telling the story of the accomplished
women and young men of integrity and compassion who have
walked this educational journey from 1857 to the present.
In hope and boundless love,
NardinToday
