  1. Mary,

    I missed you after you left us when we were on the ground floor of Tucker Hall–You were in FYC and I in Housing–I will miss seeing you around campus at events such as the Chancellor’s Welcome Reception last year! I’m sure the students here at State will miss you too because you were very dedicated to your position and what you offered our students–as you know dedication is a quality I admire in anyone who works with the university.

    Best Wishes as you pursue new dreams and adventures!

  2. Thank you for this wonderful note. Please only one change in case others read this. I have served as the longest standing professional academic adviser. There are many faculty academic advisers who have been here longer than I.
    It has been a pleasure to serve students for this time.
