Today is the last day I’ll be in Richmond, at Earlham College. I’m still formally on the job, still President, until June 30; but today Ellen, Robbie and I are starting the drive to Maine. I’ve handed over my keys: two grand masters and the keys to the president’s car. In a way, these keys are the only formal symbols of authority I have.
I’ve loved this job, and felt privileged to be Earlham’s President, but now it’s time to step away from it, and step towards something else. What? I’m not sure.
