Mike McKay Day
on St Anselm Campus
It was a tremendous pleasure gathering together in order to honor the King of St Anselm Campus - Mike McKay on Monday evening. What a tribute to this hard working young man.It seems very apparent that he is "a ladies-man" beyond our expectations!
What a show of support from the charming and beautiful female population on campus. Many of them wore Mike McKay Day Tee shirts with slogans of apprecition. The best had.."Mike is my Home-Boy on the back - wow she was a cuttie.Great things are expected by us all for Mike now and into the future.
He has always put 100% into his school work and any other challenge that faces him. Mike takes his work as campus Activity Chair very seriously and from what we saw Monday - he does a superb job. The Dean and his fellow students came out in droves to acknowledge the great honor that he recieved at the NECA Convention this weekend.
One of the most poinent moments of the night was when a male "jock-type" strolled thru the tables of students assembled and shook Mike's hand and said, "...congratulations, you deserve this honor....you make good things happen on campus for all of us." If that does not tell the story - nothing will.
Congratulations to Mike!!! It was an honor for your Old Uncle to be invited to celebrate Mike McKay Day at St. Anselm College on Monday. I am very proud of you and hope that you enjoy all the accolades that come your way!
