Excerpts of a Chapel Speech Delivered February 27, 2020

On May 28th of last year, my mind was spinning: I was about to teach my last class ever at Tabor, coordinating a coast-to-coast move to San Diego for a new job in biotech, and attempting to put on a brave face as I edged closer to the date when I would leave the place I’d called home for the past 6 years.

Celebrating our Veterans

Posted by Faculty Nate Meleo '95, Paul Salit, Dr. Karl Kistler on Nov 12, 2019 2:34:38 PM

In chapel, in celebration of Veterans Day this year, three faculty veterans shared their experiences in the military with our students in hopes of honoring those who have served and to raise awareness of the sacrifices they made to serve our country.

Mr. Nate Meleo ’95 opened with a brief history of Veterans Day and after welcomed the remarks of Mr. Paul Salit and Dr. Karl Kistler. Meleo later returned to the podium to share his own remarks and close out the service. 

Below are the remarks of Mr. Meleo and Dr. Kistler. Because Mr. Salit spoke from notes rather written remarks, we were unable to include his full remarks, though he echoed the themes of sacrifice and duty, respect and thanks for all our Veterans. Please enjoy the full remarks of Mr. Meleo and Dr. Kistler below.
