Please help us recognize Professor Bell's remarkable passion for Kettering/GMI and for our students, past and present, by joining us in celebration of his reaching an unprecedented milestone in higher education: this spring he is teaching his 200th consecutive term. You read that right; he has taught at Kettering for an unbroken 200 terms -- or 50 years.
Are you one of his favorite students? Help us honor Reg by returning to campus May 17-19 and participating in the Reg Bell Celebration and Kettering Homecoming. You can find more information about Homecoming and about the Reg Bell celebration on Kettering's website.
Please also consider honoring Professor Bell by contributing to the G. Reg Bell Endowment that we have established to support students and research in Chemistry, Biology and Biochemistry. Thanks to Thomas Plaskett '66, Joe Spielman '68, Dane Miller '69, Bob '78 and Marissa Kagle, Curt '78 and Judy Wozniak and Eric and Marissa Peterson '83, every dollar committed to the endowment by June 30 will be matched 100 percent, up to $1.5 million. More information on this and on ways to share your favorite Professor Bell stories with him and your classmates may also be found on the Reg Bell celebration webpage. We look forward to seeing you and many familiar faces back on campus for this once-in-a-lifetime event.
In the meantime, read on to discover just a few of the many amazing things that are happening in the Kettering community and to our alumni, students, faculty, staff - and remember that between issues of the Kettering Communicator you can always find the latest Kettering University News on our website or at KetteringUniversity on Facebook.
It truly is an extraordinary time at Kettering University. Please join us on campus in May and have a wonderful spring.
President Robert K. McMahan
