Pilgrim Place Yale folk send greetings to new dean

While the installation of Dean Gregory Sterling took place on the YDS campus, a loyal group of Yale folk on the West Coast were present in spirit at the Oct. 23 ceremony.  The contingent, all residents of Pilgrim Place in Claremont, CA, sent a special greeting, along with a photo, hand-delivered to New Haven by one of their own, Ronald Evans ’70 B.D., a member of the YDS Advisory Board.

The message offered “blessings and good wishes” to Sterling and said, “May this new and hope-filled deanship bring added blessings to Yale and be a time of personal and professional joy celebrated by the entire worldwide Yale community.”
