Six-word stories continue spotlighting Jaguar pride

Augusta University’s six-word stories site has been updated. Now, you have more six-word stories to read, including several new “stories behind the stories” that illustrate just how great our colleagues really are.

We could go on about it ourselves, but we think President Keel said it best:

Dear Colleagues,

The January launch of our Six Word Stories site was a resounding success! Thousands visited the site, tens of thousands viewed and shared stories on social media, and the number inspired to submit your own stories was way beyond expectations.

We’ve posted all of the six-word stories we’ve received to the site. In addition, many of you told us your “story behind the story,” and we’re releasing those in three batches over the rest of the year — beginning today.

So please visit Six Words. One Story. Read and share the heartfelt words of your colleagues. And if they touch you — as I’m sure they will — please use the website to submit your own stories, too.

Every person who has interacted with our Six Word Storytellers in the creation of this project has come away inspired. If you ever have a down moment at work or wonder what it’s all about, I encourage you to visit and be reminded that what you do at Augusta University matters — to our patients, our students, our community, ourselves.

I am proud to call each and every one of you “Colleague.” Thank you for your passion and dedication.


Brooks Keel
President, Augusta University
