Thus far, all of my posts have been about travel. I am making an exception here so that I can share a good story and a fine piece of art with you. On November 3, we unveiled a statue of our founding dean, John Lucas. Dean Lucas has had a lasting impact on our college. He led our efforts to achieve our first national accreditation and started our MBA program. He assembled a very talented faculty, holding them to high expectations.


The statue was made possible by alum and donor, Al Thomsen, and his wife, Beverly. The sculptor is Matt Placzek, a most talented artist.
