However, “the biggest focus is on fun and celebration,” says Dr. Scott.
Dr. Scott states, “the fact that our campus has been serving the Grand Valley for 30 years is worth celebrating! Our theme this year is ‘Making a difference’. We are proud that we have been serving the Valley and making a difference for 30 years and plan to continue long into the future.
