Director's Corner

Every summer, on every campus, associate director Django Paris or I preside over a special ceremony that honors the recipients of Bread Loaf’s named scholarships and faculty chairs. The event is always a highlight of the summer since it allows us to bring Bread Loaf’s past into contact with its present.

The event is always a highlight of the summer since it allows us to bring Bread Loaf’s past into contact with its present—to recognize the outstanding students and faculty whom we’ve selected to receive the awards and also to remember the individuals and families who left their extraordinary marks on Bread Loaf. And every summer I am amazed by how powerful—and moving—the connection is. Bread Loaf’s history is one of its unique strengths, providing a foundation and inspiration for excellence on all fronts.

Emily C. Bartels
Director, BLSE
