In Which Hard Work is Rewarded!

Becky just got this message from the Dean:

It is with great pride and gratitude I extend my congratulations to you
Attaining tenure and promotion to Associate Professor is a huge milestone.
I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more than you. Thank you for all
you do for us and again CONGRATULATIONS!


Let’s all congratulate her!

    Okay, Dave tells me that it’s a real photo, which seems out-of-character for both of you. Still, the rest of my comment stands!

    Always reassuring when a person gets what she deserves!! (Wait…did that come out right…does she deserve to be in academia??)
    How about this: reassuring that she has been recognized for her hard and effective work.
