It was one of the best nights of the year - the annual donor appreciation dinner. It is a night when we celebrate and thank those who have helped make the dreams of faculty and students a reality. Colton Kennedy, our student speaker, was amazing (keep an eye on him and his career). And it was such a good looking group, that I took a picture of them chanting "Yellowjackets!"
Yesterday afternoon and evening were full of gatherings. The McNair Program had their poster session and banquet. It is a great event and filled with optimism as students consider their futures in graduate school. I've attached a photo of Dr.Eric Edwards who mentored TWO student projects. I also attended a team dinner with the women's basketball team! They are an energetic group and fired up for a winning season!
