In 1953, I left my hometown of Moose River, Maine to attend the Bentley School of Accounting and Finance. Little did I know the impact Bentley would have on my life. Now 63 years later, I marvel at how I progressed from student, to alumnus, to trustee (21 years), to parent and to the proud sponsor of "The Trading Room." Equally amazing has been the transformation of Bentley to the exciting academic institution it is today. May the next 100 years be as exciting.
