Congratulations to a colleague from long ago

I am writing to congratulate Dr. (Alexander) Bracken on his new assignment as the Quigg and Virginia S. Newton Endowed Chair in Leadership (CU Connections, Feb. 2).

Dr. Bracken was “Sandy” to me as a young employee at Anderson College, now Anderson University in 1978. It was a pleasure to work with him, even for a short time. It has been my honor to also write and teach in the area of leadership since 1990s, maybe some inspiration from him so long ago.

Congratulations to Dr. Bracken from some of us who remember when he worked here. Blessings, grace and peace in this new endeavor.
