Jeremy, Leah, and Lilith Tuchmayer and Kylene Dibble
Personal statement: "We asked our children the question, 'What is the most important value in our family?" They answered, "Be welcoming and loving towards all people.' That's what family represents to us. It is loving and accepting each other, and those with whom we interact, just as we/they are—strengths, weaknesses, talents, faults. Family is a safe place to just be you. It is staying close to one another and caring for each other no matter what. It is the place where we find love and support, compassion and care. It is the place we can be silly in a way we might not be with others. Family is the place where each person can be fully themselves—fully assured of the acceptance they will receive for just being themselves." Jeremy Tuchmayer is the Associate Director in Student Affairs Assessment, Research, and Retention and Kylene Dibble is an instructor in the School of Social Work.
