Thank you all for the gift cards, cake, picture and retirement wishes. I do not know who all donated for everything so this is a heartfelt thank you to each and everyone of you. A special thanks to Laurie Clemons for coordinating everything. To Advising and all of Student Services, it’s been great working with you. Another thank you goes to Karen Sanders and Ryan Murphy for the baseball surprise gathering. And, a special, special thanks to Ron Riggle and the Athletic Department who got me, not once, but three times. It’s been a pleasure working with all of you. You are like family! Go Loggers!
