The reach of the HCXC community is wide and it echoes back through the decades. An amazing amount of support has flooded in over this past week, as we have received messages of good will from over 50 friends, family members and alumni – from Grandparents in their 80s to younger siblings not yet 10.

We had notes send from Washington DC, Boston, Baltimore, New Haven, and New York City on the East Coast to Atlanta, Columbia-South Carolina, Blacksburg-Virginia, and Raleigh Durham in the South, to Stevens Point-Wisconsin up North, to Denver, Los Angeles, and Claremont-California out West. In our own midwest, letters came from Davenport, Iowa, from Urbana-Champaign (several), and even from Elmhurst and La Grange!
