Respectus Quotes

Overhead view of respectus area


At President Huftalin’s January 2015 Inauguration, the SLCC Staff Association presented her with a gift. To recognize and celebrate her love of words, the landscaped area on the south side of the Academic and Administration Building on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus would be designated as a “respectus”--a place of reflection and thoughtfulness for students, staff, faculty and community to pause, gather, reflect, think and share their experiences amidst benches, berms, and quotes for contemplation.

For each year of President Huftalin’s presidency, a quote of her selection would be engraved on one of the stones each year. Quotes to date:
