Andrew Smith ’84

Men of Avon,

During these challenging times of uncertainty and anxiety, I encourage you to focus on what you can control and harness that energy towards a positive outcome. You all will learn from this adversity we are facing as a society. Have confidence in your abilities, dedication to your fellow Avonians, compassion for those less fortunate, and faith in your leaders. Men of Avon do not run or hide from challenges, we embrace them! While you are not together with your classmates, you are always together as a Brotherhood....and in that case you are blessed! Be strong during this challenging time and lead by the example that is renowned with Avon Old Farms! I wish you all well.

Very Respectfully,

A. F. Smith '84
