Recent MIT retirees and guests enjoy a dinner in their honor in September. At the event, Vice President for Institute Affairs and Secretary of the Corporation Kirk D. Kolenbrander and Vice President for Human Resources Alison Alden presented certificates of appreciation to the retirees. In their remarks, Kolenbrander and Alden spoke about adventures of working at MIT and the retirees' varied interests, plans for the future and dedicated long-term service -- with this year's class of 99 retirees spending a combined 2,729 years at the Institute.
