Ant Sue represents the meaning of Christmas and makes us all cry

This morning's email:
Merry Christmas Provosts!

In honor of all of you, I have “adopted” a family for Christmas this year through work. Last year BCSSI adopted an elementary school third grade class that had been destroyed by Katrina. This year, through one of the employees, we have identified (10) local Warrenton families who through no fault of their own, are having a tough year.

In lieu of personal gifts to you, I’ll be purchasing gifts for this family and will be placing your names on the tags as “The Provost Family & Children”. Heather is a single mother who has 3 boys, ages 14, 11 and 5. They are Kenny, Dylan and Tristin. In your name, groceries for Christmas dinner, gasoline, gloves, and a toy for each child will be provided. I’ll even do the wrapping this weekend when I’m home with my mom

Merry Christmas my Provost friends and extended family! I hope you approve, and I hope you know how much each of you, individually and collectively, mean to me and my family! I don’t know if we can get a picture of the family or not, but I believe Karen (coordinator at work) is going to try. If we do, I’ll pass it on to you all. We are truly blessed to have jobs, friends and family and I just wanted to pass that blessing along to others who aren’t as fortunate as we.

Love, Ant Sue
Mad props, Sue! We're all lucky to have you and we really, really love you!
