Shrinking revenues, rumors and panic over the possibly troubled future of a beloved institution, but Joe Klock's not worried:
“Barry puts its students first, and it seeks students that adhere to a value system that makes them different,” said Joe Klock, a Barry board of trustees member and Miami lawyer. “Barry fills a special role in Catholic education in our community and in serving a special constituency. These are hardworking kids, many from immigrant families. They’re not debating which island they’re visiting for spring break or which type of Maserati they’re buying.“I’m a big fan of Barry and the type of affordable, personal, public-service oriented education it offers.”Here here, that's Joe letting it flow -- good for him.
The future's so bright he's gotta wear shades:
Klock, who believes Catholic universities play a distinct role in the higher-ed ecosystem, said he’s not panicked about the future of either school. Herald said Barry and St. Thomas have always been devoted to educating underprivileged students.“You have two institutions who have a very long history of working together in a common mission,” she said. “How do we make sure it perdures?”Yes, how do we make sure it all perdures?
Is there any other question?
