Yes, faculty, parents, students, and staff … we are all part of this community that we call Bengal Nation and all hold a stake in making it great and singing its praises. I don’t know that I can list all of the reasons that being a Bengal makes me ferklempt (Yiddish, for being overcome with emotion), but in the last few weeks alone, I was proud of our students and how they came together as a community to show their spirit and raise money for Bengal Games. I watched a number of young high school students donate blood at the first opportunity their age would allow. We had students fight hard on the field in the Face-Off Against ALS Challenge against Page, and our drama students put on yet another remarkable show. I am sure you can add to this list of accolades and boasts.
