It's a pleasure to be with you tonight. Bryce has welcomed you on behalf of the Powell Endowment.
It is a pleasure to be with you tonight here at Davidson. I have counted a number of Davidson alumni as good friends and colleagues over the years, but for some reason this is the first opportunity I have had to visit the Davidson campus. I am happy to have the chance to do so this evening even though I have to make a speech to earn it!
