MCLA领结别针I started wearing a bow tie after I earned my Ph.D. It was a reminder that I had accomplished something important, something special. Bow ties are different from other neckwear because it takes a special effort to tie them. You have to be confident to wear one—especially for the first time or in new settings. And you have to make a commitment to wear one.

Shortly after I arrived at MCLA, Trustee and MCLA Alumna 巴菲》主 suggested that I have lapel pins made in the shape of a bowtie and in the colors of MCLA. 她建议 I should give them to people who have exhibited those qualities of commitment, confidence, 和精力. 

Not only is this a great idea, it fits perfectly with the values we seek to instill MCLA学生. Periodically, I’ll award these bow tie pins to members of our community as acknowledgement for their demonstrated commitment to or care for MCLA; their promotion of the values of MCLA with others; and for their experience committing great deeds 善意的. I will not always make the award publicly, but the awardees’ names will be registered in the 总统’s Office as having been acknowledged for their commitment 对MCLA.

Since I arrived at MCLA, we have had fun with my fondness for bow ties. 你可以看到 the evidence of that by 搜索ing the #MCLAbowties hashtag on Twitter, or 通过这个相册.
