I’ve read Rich’s words above countless times and they still resonate.
Tomorrow kicks off the 2022 FRC season. For many of us, it will be a return of an annual tradition that we have been doing for decades. This year will also be the introduction into our community for many and we should welcome them as best we can.
This will be a season like none before, there is a lot of uncertainty about how things will proceed and all of us are having to make decisions that keep our communities, teams, and families safe. Some of our teams know already they won’t be competing and it’s likely more will have to make that decision or have that decision made for them.
Competing or not, this year can still be a year you commit yourself to the mission of FIRST to make the culture better and we can all treat each other with grace and empathy.
Have a great season everyone and students please remember to nominate a mentor on your team for the Woodie Flowers Award.
