Thank you all so much for your efforts associated with the NRS Summer Gala last night.  The Wallace Center looked amazing.  The new NRS Display looked great.  The building and grounds were beautiful.  The setup was spectacular.  The environmental conditions were very well maintained. I was a very proud alum but I was a much prouder leader of a fantastic facilities team.

I am immensely grateful to everyone around the campus who played a role in the planning and execution of last Thursday’s highly successful Nathaniel Rochester Society Gala.  As the single largest annual event recognizing RIT’s most significant donors, this gala is a critical element in our donor stewardship program.

As I have come to appreciate about RIT, I was again impressed by the collaborate spirit exhibited across departments and divisions of RIT in the planning and execution of this function.  It took a veritable army of campus participants to welcome and thank the nearly 250 generous donors in attendance.  I want to thank the division of Development and Alumni Relations and the staff of the Wallace Center for jointly hosting this event.  Furthermore, I was pleased to see the work of countless other departments in the event’s execution including RIT Catering, Parking and Transportation, RIT Production Services,  Interpreting Services, Facilities Management, Campus Security, HUB Print Services, and Tech Crew.

All in all, it was a magical evening and one that will be talked about by our donors and campus participants for years to come.  You all made me proud (yet again) to be a part of this outstanding university.

Thanks to all involved!  Job well done.
