Colleagues, students, alumni and friends,

My family and I are grateful beyond words for your extraordinary support and enthusiasm during my inaugural year. I am greatly looking forward to working with all of you to make 2013 S&T's brightest year. We eagerly anticipate breaking ground for Bertelsmeyer Hall, our new chemical and biological engineering building, and continued progress on one of the nation's most comprehensive geothermal energy efforts.

From our Miner family to yours, we wish you the best in this holiday season
and throughout the new year.
