Giving and getting





















Staff and faculty members put their names in for a prize drawing at the “Creative Thought Bold Promise” campaign’s on-campus celebration. Among the speakers, Jonathan Brestoff ’07 and Lauren Seebacher ’08 warmly thanked the professors, safety officers, and cooks who have guided and nurtured them. Festivities included a gourmet dinner catered by restaurateur (and Skidmore trustee) Steve Sullivan ’78, as well as music by Garland Nelson ’96 and Soul Session, Laura Anderson Wood ’79 with Joe Sallins, and student a cappella groups. The event was emceed by campus-campaign chairs Jeff Segrave, Porter Professor and exercise scientist; Ralph Ciancio, professor emeritus of English; and Monica Minor, director of Skidmore’s opportunity programs.
As they reminded the crowd, strong participation by faculty and staff is widely seen as a
compelling insiders’ confirmation of the campaign’s value and vision. —SR
