 Has it been a year already? 
July 1 marked my first anniversary as president of East Central University. The time has simply flown as I have been privileged to get acquainted with our students, faculty and staff as well as the citizens of  Ada and many alumni in Oklahoma and Texas.Kay and I are very happy to be in Ada. People here are great. I have come to believe that educators have the greatest of all professions. They get to share their knowl- edge with a new group of young people every year and watch as the light bulbs go on in their minds. I amconvinced that our educators are more approachable and caring than those at almost any other college or university.I love working with students. Their spirit and enthusiasm are contagious.I also love hearing all the stories from alums and friends about ECU. I have my own, of course, but  hearing others’ stories binds us together as Tigers and, I think, shows we are part of something bigger – a continuum of history and traditions as one generation blends into another. Did I mention that I love East Central University more than ever? And one of our own, Gen. James D. Thurman (’75), was promoted to four-star general in June and  took over huge responsibilities for thousands of American soldiers. I am thrilled to announce that he will be in Ada for Homecoming. He will be our parade marshal and will attend the Homecoming football game. I want to invite you to be here as well.This year has been a wonder beyond my wildest imagination. Enjoy the campus with me – see you at homecoming.John R. Hargrave, J.D.President, East Central University
