Letter to the Editor

A bittersweet occasion

For the many of us that were inspired, consoled and tolerated (as rebellious youth bent on challenging “the system”) by Erl Suni over his 30 1/­­2 years of service, his retirement is a bittersweet occasion. Erland Suni is and was an institution at UMKC.

I hope that each and all of us who crossed paths with this wonderful, humble, sincere man take a moment to thank him for his service, humor, guidance and levity.

Erl Suni truly made a difference in thousands of lives during his tenure with the Student Life Office and then Financial Aid.

Thank you Erl. You will be missed, never forgotten, and forever woven into the fond memories many of us have of UMKC.

-Matthew J. O’Connor
