ANNOUNCEMENTS

RETIREMENT THANKS
I want to take this opportunity to thank the KU community as I recently entered the retired phase of life. It’s hard to believe how fast 30 years can go by. It was my distinct pleasure to work with many of you to perform business and accounting functions, but it has always been the personal relationships that matter the most. I had worked at other places for the first 13 years and can assure you that KU has been the best place to be. Many thanks for all of all your generosity, cooperation, patience, and caring as we shared our collegial relationships. It is my wish that you may all be blessed through the challenges and victories ahead.
     Greg Dottor, Business Office retiree
