Foundation Professor

 
 

In June 2007 the University of Nevada honored their Foundation Professors.  It is an award that was developed in 1983 to recognize and salute the university’s professors for outstanding achievements, particularly in research and teaching. In addition, Foundation Professors’ names appear in the University’s Honor Court.


This year, Dale was one of the professors given the award.  It was a nice ceremony out on the quad.  Dale’s name was engraved on one of the granite pillars real close to the bottom.  He thinks he gets to be the last guy on that particular pillar. 


The ceremony was beautiful.  Dale was supposed to speak for 3 minutes, but of course, he could not help himself and went a lot longer than 3 minutes.  He thinks he talked for 5 minutes but the kids think 20.
