GC students, faculty and staff participate in 'The Gratitude Project'

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the students, faculty, and staff of Garrett College were asked to take a moment to share their appreciation and gratitude by completing the sentence "I am thankful for..." Many participated in the project and the hallways are lined with an array of thankfulness posters.

The Gratitude Project at Garrett College started as a forum where the College community could recognize and vocalize their gratitude for others. "It was heart-warming to watch students and colleagues struggle to list all the things for which they are thankful in only a few words," stated Keela Pfaff, staff member at GC who organized this year’s project. "Taking the time to reflect on all the blessings of life brought smiles and laughter to everyone who participated."
