Ronald B. LeeDear friends,

On behalf of the Adelphi University Board of Trustees, I am pleased to welcome you to the 19th Annual President’s Gala.

As friends of Adelphi University, we come together this evening to celebrate the powerful ways by which an individual’s generosity can help transform students’ lives and have a lasting impact on the Adelphi community.

This year, we honor three remarkable individuals who have done just that—Adelphi University Trustee Michael Tiedemann, B.B.A. '89, and his wife Christine, and Paula Malone, Ph.D. We are very grateful for their outstanding generosity and commitment to helping our students learn, develop and succeed. Our youngest students will benefit from an endowment established by Paula in support of our Alice Brown Early Learning Center and the Tiedemann Family Scholarship will help make an Adelphi education more accessible to current and future Panthers.

Michael, Christine and Paula—your leadership, loyalty and support are honored and admired by us all.

Thank you for being part of the success of our President’s Gala and the endowments that it supports which help Adelphi students pursue their dreams on and off our campuses, and well into their futures.

Again, on behalf of my fellow trustees, we are immensely grateful for your continued generosity and your support of Adelphi University.

Ronald B. Lee '67
Chairman, Board of Trustees
Adelphi University
