1996 COW Award Speech, presented to Anne Condon

Friends, faculty, and honorable, handsome, loving, wonderful members of my prelim committee:

Each year, graduates and undergraduates alike raise their voices to select one professor who has shone especially brilliantly from the brightly lit sky of talent that is our department.

The students choose a teacher - someone who has enhanced the richness that is the collective mind of humanity.

The students chose someone with compassion - gladly willing to spend additional time on a pursuit that brings neither international recognition nor the green of the grant.

The students chose someone with patience, for conferring knowledge becomes harder as your own knowledge becomes greater.

The students chose someone with empathy - for to teach someone, you must understand them.

This year, the students chose Anne Condon. Congratulations.
