Letter to Highline Athletes from
Athletics Director John Dunn

(March 23, 2020)
T-Birds –
During this time of uncertainty I just wanted check in to see how each of you are doing and let you know that Laura, your coaches and I are working through all of the issues that will be facing you during spring quarter and beyond. Please understand that our number one priority is you, the student-athlete. For the spring athletes, we will be contacting you through your coaches to let you know what your options will be moving forward. So for now, try to be patient, stay focused on your academics, and do your part to socially distance yourself from others. Remember, what is right isn’t always popular and what is popular isn’t always right. Be the example, lead, and help those around you.

Thank You for Being a T-Bird!
Sincerely,  John Dunn
Athletic Director, Highline College
