Thanks to everyone who participated in the CCOE Awards Ceremony yesterday at the Carnegie Hotel. The positive emotions and sincere appreciation were richly evident in the smiles of award recipients along with their families and friends. Joseph Sobol gave a rousing performance and a thoughtful, humorous story while the nominators made very inspirational and heart-rending comments. The refreshments were exquisite as concocted by the chefs of the hotel…there may be a few left in the Dean’s office if your sweet tooth is active today and Debbie doesn’t eat them all!
