I want to wish you the very best for a happy and safe holiday season.
I recognize next year may be a difficult time for us all individually as we continue to face the economic decline. I am confident that the economy will eventually turn around. In the meantime as a family we need to be prepared to help individuals in need.
I am excited about 2009. Together we will continue to ensure that the Dugoni School will maintain its greatness. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to serve as your dean. I look forward to working with you in 2009.
