A happy occasion

On Friday, October 9, Temple University had its annual Gallery of Success awards ceremony, as part of homecoming weekend. This year the awardees included Dr. Jeffrey S. Coons, who was my first Ph.D. student at Temple University.

Jeff gave a very generous donation to the Economics Department at Temple University a few months ago. You can read a bit more about this on this page, along with a brief synopsis of Jeff’s career since leaving Temple.

I am grateful to Jeff for his generosity to my department and its graduate students and his recognition of my work in helping him succeed in his doctoral studies. I was delighted to be able to attend the Gallery of Success event and applaud Jeff and all the other awardees for their impressive achievements.
