So Long, and Thanks for All The Fish

So Long, and Thanks for All The Fish


Friday, August 29th, 2014 is my last official day at Hendrix College.

How does one recap what has been, perhaps, the most personally and professionally rewarding stretch of a career, in a few short words?

Poorly, if this blog post is to be one’s guide.

I have had the distinct honor and privilege of serving an academic community that is supportive, yet commands excellence. I have been blessed with colleagues and coworkers who have made me a better person, a better employee, and a better leader. I have learned new talents, and have rediscovered talents long forgotten.

And, even after they got to really know me, they still accepted me – and kept me around. What more can one ask in a position?

I hope to be able to announce what comes next in a future post.

Parenthetically, my wife hopes that this will be the not-so-distant future.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
