Affirming family and Skidmore bonds, trustee Donald Sussman hugs daughter Emily ’04, at a gathering to dedicate Emily’s Garden, the vegetarian station in the college’s revamped Murray-Aikins dining hall. Her commitment to vegetarianism in her early youth and her strong sense of ethics and service in all she does, he said, inspired him to honor her with this gift that contributes to the variety and healthfulness of the d-hall’s offerings for future students. A fruit-smoothie toast capped the ceremony. Later that day, similar bonds were confirmed in a memorial tribute to trustee emerita Jean Poskanzer Rudnick ’44. Her extensive support of Skidmore had included restoring a much-loved piano, so she was celebrated with a concert on the piano by President Emeritus David Porter. —SR
