Commencement Thank You

May 23, 2007

To the Campus Community,

I’d like to thank everyone who volunteered and who helped Presidential Events and Programs as part of their normal responsibilities execute the biggest and probably most historic Commencement and Honors Convocation in our history. We had the help of more than 150 volunteers from every corner of the campus who pitched in and worked hard – despite temperatures in the 40s and the ever-present threat of rain.

We could not have done it without all of you who gave up a Friday afternoon and Saturday to help UNH. From the incredible public safety organizers like UNH Deputy Police Chief Paul Dean and Durham Deputy Police Chief Rene Kelley, to the facilities staff who set up the stage, chairs and plywood on the field, to audiovisual services who provided light and sound to the stage, to housekeeping staff who were on the field at dawn helping us wipe off chairs and distribute programs, to photo services who captured the energy on and off the field, and to hospitality services who kept hot coffee flowing, you all made UNH shine for the 2,900 graduates and their families.

While it was an honor to host two former U.S. Presidents, I must say the greatest honor is working with all of you. Those of us in University Communications and Marketing, and particularly in Presidential Events and Programs, will never forget Commencement 2007 and the support we had from all of you – we couldn’t have done it otherwise. This was teamwork at its finest. Thank you again for your commitment and dedication to UNH.

Have a great summer,
