The Department of Materials Science and Engineering's current and former faculty, staff, students, and alumni/ae celebrated the service and upcoming retirement of long-time staff member Judy Trachtman, Academic and Financial Coordinator, on Friday, April 30, 2010 as part of Drexel's annual Blue and Gold Days alumni/ae weekend celebration.
Judy has been a fixture in the department since she started at Drexel on June 30, 1970. Since that time, she has helped to shepherd B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. students from admittance to graduation and has maintained ties with many alumni/ae who came out to honor her on April 30.
The cocktail reception and dinner included a slide show of memorable moments at Drexel during Judy's time, tributes by current and former faculty and alumni/ae, and a presentation of gifts.
