Anderson: Three cheers to Van Fleet

Just wanted to say how pleased I was to see the university award the President’s Medal for Distinguished Service to Jan Van Fleet, former secretary to the Senate and Board (Van Fleet awarded President’s Medal for Distinguished Service, June 5).

It is nice to see Western recognize some of its outstanding staff. Jan dedicated her life to the university and went above and beyond duty on many occasions.

As a Western employee for 30 years, I had the opportunity to work with Jan on many occasions over the years and always found her friendly, professional and helpful.

Western is to be congratulated on recognizing its outstanding staff.
