DR. DENNIS HEFNER, INTERIM PRESIDENT:
It’s my pleasure to introduce our first speaker. The entire campus extends its profound gratitude to our state senator, Joseph Griffo. [Applause]
He was instrumental in securing – you can clap if you want to, that’s okay [Applause] – He was instrumental in securing the full $55 million in funding for the Performing Arts Center from the Senate and the Senate committees. And he did this during his freshman year.
