Dianne Hosford BA ’86 writes: “I own a restaurant—The Crazy Norwegians Fish and Chips on the Southern Coast of Oregon (Port Orford)—and was part of the disaster that COVID created for hospitality. I learned more humility, more gratitude, more resilience, and more divergent thinking! I was able to navigate through the worst of the pandemic by being graceful with all of the necessary pivots. I certainly think that some of my better tools for coping and being successful were collected at L&C. I was also successful in grabbing every single Small Business Administration grant that came my way due to my ability to be prepared and ready with all the necessary information. One of the more valuable skills that I learned at L&C is the art of readiness when all I really want to do is procrastinate!”
