Tributes Due by September 22, 2015

Our first event in the Homecoming Kickoff to the Computer Science Golden Jubilee will be a recognition dinner for Dr. Arlan DeKock.   Dr. DeKock worked at the University from 1968-2006, first as a professor of Computer Science, later as the chair of the Department of Computer Science, and eventually as founding dean of the School of Management and Information Systems.  A dinner in Dr. DeKock’s honor will take place on Thursday, October 22, 2015 at the Comfort Suites Inn.  Registration for the dinner and other Homecoming events is now open.

In preparation for the recognition dinner, we are collecting stories, tributes and photos related to Dr. DeKock which we will compile in a keepsake book for him.  These can be humorous or serious, long or short.  You might highlight some aspect of his character illustrated by a personal observation or recall some practical insights you gained from him.  In order to be included in the keepsake book for Dr. DeKock, we need to receive your tributes by September 22.  We will also share these via this blog throughout the Golden Jubilee Celebration year.  Please send to: .  Be sure to include your full name, your relationship to Missouri University of Science and Technology (e.g. alum, faculty, staff), your major and year of graduation if you are an alum, and your email so we can contact you if we have any questions.
