Thanks so much. I want to take this opportunity to thank the many business and professional people who I have worked with over the last 40-some years. I truly appreciate the many opportunities that I have had to work with so many wonderful people. Wish that I could stop by and say thanks in person to all of you. If I wasn’t able to see you in person I hope that you will understand that it wasn’t possible because I worked with thousands of business and professional people in northern Iowa and southern Minnesota through the years. Your confidence in me and willingness to work

with me throughout my career have meant so much to me. Hope that some of my ideas and the information that I tried to share with you through the years helped you. Best wishes to everyone.

When he’s finished with college, he’ll have the same college degree as students who started at a 4-year school. By choosing NIACC for the first two years and transferring to a 4-year school, our son is saving our family $7,238.* That’s a huge difference in these difficult economic times.

Choose NIACC first. Call 1-888-GO NIACC *Average difference between two years tuition at NIACC and two years average tuition at regents universities in Iowa. (based on Fall 2010 tuition and fees) MS-22411
