Five members of my family have had close connections with Clarkson. Four are alumni, one of whom had lifetime employment after graduation as a faculty member. A fifth was the janitor at Old Main for 22 years. On behalf of all of us, I thank you for your contributions at every level. You are truly a Workman Who Needeth Not To Be Ashamed. I also recognize that you did not accomplish this in a vacuum. You were surrounded by good people who followed your direction. Not the least of your ensemble cast was Mrs. Collins without whose support you may not have been less effective. May the next chapter of your life be as challenging and fruitful. Karen, those moving boxes you finally discarded would come in handy now!
May God bless!
