Letter to the editor: College handled virus splendidly

I want to echo the message that Angelo Lynn wrote in an editorial entitled “Thanks for the Sacrifices” in the June 5 issue of the Independent. I was one of those people he wrote about “who argued loudly last summer that bringing students back to the campus was sure to spread the virus and bring tragic consequences to the community.”

I am glad to admit that I was wrong and to say a very big word of thanks to the college administration and especially the students who did so well with a difficult situation. Once again we have seen what a great asset Middlebury College is to this community!
