      They don't come any better than Jim Vick, as a teacher, as a human being, as an administrator, as a mentor to countless students, and any other capacity in which he has ever served. Our University is blessed to have been his choice for his career, and we must do what we can to preserve it as a home for people like Jim Vick.
