The sunny, breezy day was made to order as friends, family and former students gathered to celebrate oceanographer and past professor David Folger on the shores of Lake Champlain. The shining focus was the spectacular and highly technological newest floating laboratory, the Research Vessel David Folger.
In noting what tremendous opportunities this new facility will provide, President Liebowitz underlined the importance of both the sciences and experiential learning, while others, including Lake Champlain Maritime Museum director Art Cohn and CEO of Terry Precision Cycling Liz Robert ’78, offered enthusiastic remarks on the benefits for the local community. And former student Debbie Hutchinson Gove ’74 shared memories and reminiscences from other classmates who couldn’t be there. Middmag was on hand to capture it all.
