    Congratulations to both Dr. Shapka and Dr. Thompson. I was fortunate enough to be a student while Dr. Thompson was Dean and also at the same time Dr. Shapka was, a student.
    I have also had the opportunity to reach out to kindness in action when I was going on a trip to Haiti and Cambodia and was grateful for all the help that Dr. Shapka gave me. Congratulations to both of you you’re very deserving of these awards
