Jazmin Lupercio, Harper Alumni and Staff Member

I’d like to thank Dr. Ender for always making Harper College a safe space for students. And for being approachable and attending big Harper events.

Robert Uhren, Access Advocate, Access and Disability Services, Harper College

I have been here since 09/2018 and my initial impression of Harper College is that it is and will be a place to serve any student who has the willingness to develop the necessary characteristics of success (e.g., fortitude, grit, perseverance, determination & work ethic). I am grateful to arrive at Harper College in time to observe the output that is relative to your time here.

Cheri Esparza, 4th Grade Teacher, Stuart R. Paddock Elementary School

Dr. Ender, thank you so much for the relationships that you have built with my fourth graders for the last eight years. I know that every one of my students who has met you, when they are thinking of their future, are thinking, “I want to go to Harper College.”

David Richmond, Associate Professor, History, Harper College

Thank you, Dr. Ender, for making us all a part of your vision for Harper College. Working with you has been a tremendous pleasure. I certainly hope you won't be a stranger. Come back and see us anytime. Thank you.

Derrick Hamilton, Vice President, STANLEY Security

Dr. Ender, it has been my great honor and privilege to be involved in some little way in a fantastic tenure. It has been a great honor to know you, and you should be very proud of all you have accomplished for Harper, for the community, and for our nation. Thank you.

It has been a wonderful ten years. It was everything that I knew it was going to be. You certainly achieved what you set out to do while you were at Harper. I look forward to hearing about the next chapter, because I know our friendship will transcend what comes next. You're a great friend. So good luck to you. Love you.

Dr. Maria Coons, Chief of Staff/Board Liaison, Vice President, Institutional Planning & Strategic Alliances, Harper College

Thank you. I have probably been working for you longer than anybody else here at Harper, and I have learned a lot. I have learned about leadership, I have learned about authenticity, and I have learned about grit. I have truly enjoyed working for you.

Show your appreciation by leaving Dr. Ender a farewell message.
