“I don’t know how my story will end, but nowhere in my text will it ever read, ‘I gave up’.”

Today, I got to see a true shining star; Marietta Watts. You may remember meeting her in the outhouse nearly two years ago as the driving force of UK’s diversity program, Humanity Academy. Marie Dale, Crystal Heis, Stacy Yelton, and I ran into Marietta at an HA focus group this morning. I know I sound biased about Marietta, but it’s not just me who thinks she hung the moon. Every HA grad in that group today singled her out as someone we look up to, respect, and value. She is a leader, and a woman of great compassion. Her work is so important to us, and the University community. Honestly, the world needs more Marietta Watts’. We’d have a lot less fighting, and lot more understanding. What a beacon of goodness she is in this life. I’m honored to call her friend.
