“When I started here at Roycemore, we had the annual fundraiser event. At the end of it, we did something I never have done before, a paddle raise. We start at the $5,000 level and people raise their paddles, and as we get going further down, and more and more people are raising their paddles. We get to $100 level and I look around the room and the entire faculty body that’s there is raising their paddles. It was this huge moment of, ‘I’m in a place where everyone is all in, and it was this overwhelming sense of belonging and community in that moment…’ ”
