Dear Alumni and Friends
of Ole Miss Engineering,

After serving the University of Mississippi and the Department of Electrical Engineering for 34 years, Dr. Allen Glisson, Professor and Chair, retired at the end of June. In fact, counting the days that he was a student, he has been with the department and the university for 43 years. We appreciate Dr. Glisson's long association with the university and his dedication to the education of generations of students. If you would like to send a greeting to Dr. Glisson, his email address still works: aglisson@olemiss.edu

In this newsletter, we also bring you stories of student, alumni, and school's development officer, Kevin Gardner. Hope you enjoy these stories for your summer reading.

Best wishes,

Alex Cheng Signature
