HONOURING BRIAN WAGNER – AUG. 21

Dear colleagues

As many of you know, Dr. Brian Wagner served UPEI as Assistant Vice-President Graduate Studies for three years. On August 1, 2013, Brian returned full-time to the chemistry department.

Vickie Johnston and I have organized an informal gathering at Mavors (Lounge area is booked and we can overflow outside if it is nice) from 3:30-5:30 pm on August 21.

Please join us as we raise a glass to honour and thank Brian for his excellent work in support of graduate studies and graduate students at UPEI.

Miles Turnbull

P.S. All welcome. Our V-P Academic has generously offered to pay for a few
nibblies (but not drinks!)
