Dr. Spagna, It was great to receive your alumni letter about the positive direction
of the Physics program at Randolph Macon. My training in Small Hall forty years
ago gave me the tools to compete successfully in a wide range of endeavors. I am
pleased to see that tradition grow.
This June I ended my career as an industrial physicist and laboratory manager at
General Electric's Global Research Center in Niskayuna, NY, just down the road from
your alma mater. I am using my retirement freedom to start a new life. I now teach
undergraduates as an associate professor of physics at Christopher Newport University
in Newport News, Va. It is positively wonderful to be back in my native state on
a growing campus.
