RETIREMENT THANK YOU

I need to express my thoughts with my retirement only days away. I am very thankful to all the faculty, staff and students that have dramatically enhanced my life in many ways. I am blessed to have shared in the presence of so many dedicated, sincere and truly remarkable people. It's been an incredible and fulfilling journey spanning 27 years. During that time I have made numerous friends from across this vast campus. I wish all of you good health and good fortune and I thank all my friends and co-workers who presented gifts and arranged parties in my honor. Thanks for the memories!
