Mary, congratulations on your retirement! I am so grateful for all of the time at Carleton that I was able to ask you questions in classes like geomorphology and soil science and in Tasmania. Your answers always connected the rock or river or soil we were looking at to larger intersecting takeaways about the world around us and I don’t think I’d have such an interdisciplinary appreciation of geology without your instruction!

I also don’t know how to begin to express how grateful I am to you for your role in getting me to where I am right now. Thank you for your incredible support since graduating. You’ve had such an impact on me (and so many others!!) at Carleton and I’m wishing you the very best in your retirement!
