Boast Post

Dr. Carl is a genius. I know a lot of you already know this, but it is so true. He was a National Merit Scholar, he got straight A's all through high school AND undergrad AND grad school. I've only seen him stressed about school a few times. Now Carl is a professor. He works with a lot of other geniuses. I see him a little more concerned than normal. He is getting gray hair (which I think is totally attractive on him). Getting tenure is important and he's starting to feel the pressure. He's been here almost two years and has had little luck securing a noteworthy grant. Until this week. That's right, folks. Carl's trip to D.C last month paid off. He's still got a way to go toward getting tenure but I saw some weight taken off his shoulders this week. I couldn't be more proud.

  2. Congratulations, Carl! You know, Carl is one of those really rare and cool people who are smart in many ways and also fun to be around. He's a good one. I had no doubts that he'd be a successful professor.

    And I bet those grey hairs look very distinguishing on him. Hubba hubba.
