Thank you for welcoming Dick and me into the Wesleyan family 11 years ago. It has
been wonderful to be a part of such a vibrant intellectual community. We have attended
lectures, plays, athletic events and musical performances. We have entertained speakers,
students, parents, alumni, community members, friends of the university and faculty
and staff at over 500 events in our University home.
In addition, we have had the opportunity to travel thousands of miles across the country
to meet with alumni and friends and to hear their stories.
These visits have always affirmed what we do on campus, enabling us to see how the
lives of alumni have unfolded after IWU.
The willingness of our alumni and friends to give back has been a concrete testament
to the experiences they had here, and these gifts have made progress possible during
this most difficult national financial period.
Dick and I will certainly continue to want the best for IWU and the people here. This
is a good place filled with good people who work hard to provide a future for deserving
Even though Wesleyan will no longer be in our front yard, it will always be in our
hearts. Thank you all for making this such a warm, welcoming place.
