Dearest Bela,

You have been the face of the Dean’s Office for 20 years! Whether it was an influential alumni leader visiting the school or a student intern (me) presenting themselves on their first day of work, when guests entered the Dean’s Office suite, you were always the first person who warmly greeted them, and more importantly, made them feel so welcomed!

Thank you for everything that you did to make our office feel warm and inviting over the years. We are all blessed to have had the privilege of working with you and the office is not going to ever be the same without you!

Congratulations on your retirement! Wishing you and Kay many treasured moments as you begin your new journey! Hopefully, London will be one of your stops once it is safe to do so!
