Dear Dean Hazeltine,

Congratulations on your Birthday milestone! I have such fond memories of taking EN 9 and EN 90, and being a TA for EN 9. Your lectures and guest speakers inspired me to pursue a career in corporate America. I was continually impressed at your ability to recruit interesting speakers and generate great enthusiasm in each class. I learned how to critically analyze business issues using case study methods. This experience has been invaluable not only in the corporate world but also in my current MBA program at Babson College.

I remember how you encouraged me to transcend the typical Bachelor of Science curriculum and add the honors in Organizational Behavior and Management (OBM). My OBM honors project entailed studying a now defunct manufacturing company. Thanks to your classes and guidance, I learned about corporate best practices and avoiding pitfalls that would contribute to a company's demise. The project also inspired me to work in manufacturing companies. Thanks to you, I was employed in this sector for over 20 years!
