Dedication of the Rondi L. Arlton Exhibition Foyer
October 8, 2011
Welcome to a very special Wilson Center event–the dedication of the Rondi Arlton Exhibition Foyer. As many of you know, Rondi served as my assistant, formally the Administrative Assistant to the Director of the Wilson Center, from 1998 until 2010. It is simply not possible to overstate Rondi's value to the center during this period. Her deep affection for the College and the Wilson Center family-its staff and our students and alumni-was always in evidence and was warmly reciprocated. The Wilson Center's success in establishing nationally competitive leadership, public service, and public affairs programs during its first decade benefitted greatly from Rondi's resolute and contagious commitment to excellence and professionalism as well as her conviction that we should all squeeze everything we can possibly get, including some fun (and whenever possible a lot of fun), out of every single day.
