The Gift of Gratitude

December 20, 2016

From the desk of Dr. Kevin Kirk, president of Community Care College, Clary Sage College, and Oklahoma Technical College.

Tis the season of gift giving.

A quality that I admire is the gift of gratitude.

Having a strong sense of gratitude is a key element to our pursuit of happiness.

I feel it is a gift to have and share with others.

At this season of giving I am grateful for many things:

  • Good Health
  • Family
  • My Faith in God
  • For the blessing to be a part of something I have loved doing and working with wonderful coworkers
  • For seeing the glass half full
  • For the blessing of visiting some wonderful countries and some wonderful places in this great land of America
  • For the freedom to do what I want, when I want
  • To be a mentor to others
  • To be at peace with who I am


“Gratitude is a mark of a noble soul and a refined character. We like to be around those who are grateful.”
