Friends: As you can imagine, it has become necessary to cancel the festival this year. According to ECU's President Pierson, ECU will be "suspending any activities on campus until further notice." All Oklahoma schools are in consultation today, or in the process of discussion of managing the virus threat. It is, of course, disappointing but obviously this is the right path to take, given the unknown factors associated with the virus.
We will be awarding, via traditional mail, the student winners in the various contests.
I will miss seeing you; we all will.
Take care, and good writing!
