Setting an Example

Carnegie Mellon University's President Jared L. Cohon will step down on June 30, 2013 after sixteen years in the job. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Penn State University President Graham Spanier called Cohon "one of the great leaders in American higher education in the modern era."
While Cohon had this to say about his retirement,
"It's just time," Cohon, 62, said during a conference call with reporters. A CMU tenured-faculty member, he plans to teach courses spanning civil and environmental engineering and public policy.

"Sometimes individuals can go on for longer than they should," Cohon said. "Universities need new leaders from time to time. They need people with fresh ideas."
Graham I suggest that you listen real close to this great leader's words of  wisdom and consider following in his fast as you can.
