I am very pleased to welcome you to the Kohl Center.
My four years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus were the happiest of my life.
After years of working in the private and public sector, I wanted to say thank you to the state and institution that gave so much to me and my family.
This university has shaped the lives of millions of students and enriched our state and, indeed, the world in so many wonderful ways.
This facility will be part of the campus for many years to come. But it is only a small piece of the beautiful tapestry that the University of Wisconsin offers its students, the city of Madison and the entire state.
