Mr. James W. Toy, MSW

If only I could care for and teach myself as consistently and as well as you have for 3 decades, oh what a wise man I would be. Thank you, for helping me circumnavigate the University of Michigan and for giving me the litmus to hold against myself, which shaped my aspirations in terms of the kind of man, I truly hope to someday be. Thank you for your gentle and steady guidance, your tender verve, and most of all your tenacity. Thank you on behalf of the hundreds of Steven’s, Tony’s, Shawn’s, Scotties, Johns, and Kim’s that were wounded and lost like me, that found shelter, healing and direction in your professional and personal excellence.  You are undeniably one of the University of Michigan’s greatest assets—ever.
