When Dave P. retired earlier this year, his colleagues created him an amazing retirement Kudoboard to wish him well. Here are just a couple choice quotes from Dave’s board:
“Words such as “Congratulations, Well Deserved, and You’ll be missed” aren’t enough to thank you for your contribution to the Forest Service, and the science community at large. Though as I look back at our five years of working together, I can’t help but emphasize those words. Congratulations on your upcoming retirement; it is so well deserved; and sadly, you will be missed! You have left a mark on our society, our Agency, the climate world and most of all, on me!”
“I have so many things to thank you for! Thank you for making me a better writer, for exemplifying professionalism, thank you for being understanding, and thank you for pushing me to be better! You have been the single most influential person in my career, and I fondly refer to you as “advisor gold”. The mark you have left on your students and colleagues has cascaded throughout our communities. Your work shows what a great scientist you are, and your interactions with individuals show what a great person you are.”

From all of us at Kudoboard – congrats, Dave, and thanks for giving us permission to share your retirement board!
