Tony and Karen,
Certainly, congratulations are in order for your retirement. But I find it is more important for me to thank you both for your tireless energy that has resulted in the transformation of “Tech” into this illustrious university. Not only was it a springboard for me, a first-generation college student, but subsequently served so many others in my family including my sister, brother-in-law, nephews, cousins, and close friends. And I would be remiss to not state this is where I met my wife – even if she is a St. Lawrence graduate! Beyond the personal stories Clarkson has for me, the opportunity to be part of this change, from research advisory boards to scholarships, from annual donations to special support needs, your initiative, energy, and enthusiasm have only served to heighten my duty and my commitment to this school. So, thank you for all you have done directly and indirectly, and go enjoy life in Philadelphia. I hope to see you at a hockey game sometime in the future. And if you are ever in the Tuxedo, NY area, don’t be afraid to reach out.
