DeCafé Employee Expresses Gratitude, Bids Farewell

Kathy Baker, DeCafé Grill Cook/Counter Cook/Cashier

December 9, 2016

To the Editors: My name is Kathy. I work in Wilder Hall in DeCafé. Most of you see me when I’m working on the cash register. Some of you may know I’m retiring this December. I want to say a few things to you, the students, before I go. Thank you. You cannot know how much you have enriched my life over the years. Thank you for your energy and your humor. They have sustained me. Thank you for the conversations we’ve had — wonderful conversations about your families, your travels, your studies, your plans for the future. I have so enjoyed these interactions with you. Thank you for the invitations to your recitals and performances. I have thoroughly enjoyed attending and have been amazed by your talents! Thank you ...
