Debbie and I had a very special time Friday night, May 4, at my retirement celebration held in the Luckason Room on the campus of Mayville State University. It was an evening filled with the sharing of memories and stories of our time here at Mayville State. Laughter, tears of joy, and getting reacquainted with special friends from the past created an evening we will never forget. To all of you who attended, we say “thank you.” Debbie and I love this community we came to 42 years ago and we were so happy to see the room filled with faculty, staff, friends, colleagues, family, and community members there to celebrate with us at the end of our career.
