    Appropriate greeting?

    Dear Teachers,

    I need to come up with a greeting that would address the committee of professors, faculty, and students of my college.

    How should I address everyone respectfully? Should I say :
    - Good morning professors, faculty, and everyone.
    or
    - Good morning everyone.

    Thank you in advance.

    It depends on whether it is meant to be formal or informal.
    For a formal speech, yes, it is appropriate to address each group individually (in order of hierarchy) e.g. esteemed professors, faculty members, invited guests, fellow students etc.
