Professor Hazeltine,

Happy Birthday and congratulations on reaching yet another milestone!

You were among my very favorite professors at Brown and your teachings ignited my business career. I felt well-schooled in the case-study method prior to attending Harvard Business School, thanks to EN 9 and 90. Your contagious spirit is felt at Brown, Providence and beyond; it touches all of us who have had the privilege to be taught by and work with you.

What made you special was your ability to reach out to the underdog: the quieter student such as myself or perhaps the one struggling a bit academically or personally. I have tried to do the same in my career and your being an early role model in this area has been inspirational to me.

I wish you and your family all the best now and in the years to come. Thanks for everything!
