Evelyn Reiman, who was the director of student development at the time, 00:00.000 - 00:05.497
was a very good mentor for me. 00:05.497 - 00:09.515
She and I--and I'll never forget it-- 00:09.515 - 00:14.168
when I graduated she gave me a picture, a painting, a print, 00:14.168 - 00:22.409
and on the back of it she wrote--and it's not a verbatim quote-- 00:22.409 - 00:29.954
but she wrote something like, "I enjoyed learning that two people could have the same goal and approach it differently." 00:29.954 - 00:43.419
That was sort of over the years that we were working together, particularly those last two years, 00:43.419 - 00:51.626
politically, world views, she and I probably could not have been more different 00:51.626 - 00:58.779
but at the end of the day we realized that we both had the same goal, 00:58.779 - 01:05.074
and because I had one view of how we got somewhere 01:05.074 - 01:12.550
did not make me a bad person because I was trying to get to the same place that she was trying to get, just from the opposite direction. 01:12.550 - 01:21.135
So I felt like she and I both probably were able to learn something from each other, 01:21.135 - 01:28.995
although I did a lot more learning from her than she did from me, that's for sure. 01:28.995 - 01:33.520
But it was fun when we would get into these discussions and we would try to get somewhere 01:33.520 - 01:40.333
and we would always start off at opposite spots, but it was never a contentious situation. 01:40.333 - 01:47.819
We got along great and I thought over the two years that I was student body president that we had a very good relationship working together. 01:47.819 - 01:58.257
