“Mayor Menino has been a powerful advocate for the role that education and research play in fueling innovation and prosperity, as well as expanding horizons and enriching lives.  He has made an indelible impression on the city to which he’s given his heart and soul, always staying focused on how to help its people and its neighborhoods thrive. Discoveries and degree holders are as much a part of his legacy as buildings and businesses, and his efforts to promote education will pay dividends for generations to come.  I am personally grateful for his friendship, guidance, and advice, and regard myself as one of this extraordinary leader’s grateful students.  I hope to have many more opportunities to work with him and to benefit from his counsel and friendship in the months and years ahead.”
