Cecil Smithson's Retirement Reception

Can anyone imagine life in Webb Center without Cecil Smithson?  He has been an integral part of every meeting and event held in Webb since 1975.  After thirty-eight years of service to Old Dominion University and Webb Center, Cecil will retire on January 1, 2014.  Cecil exemplifies a model of hard work, attention to detail and friendly, attentive service to everyone who uses Webb Center.  He has been a tremendous employee who excels at customer service.

Cecil’s retirement is our loss, but a well-deserved respite for him.  After almost forty years of taking care of students, faculty and staff he can finally take time to enjoy his hobbies:  gardening, fishing and caring for the many birds, fish, frogs and other critters in his menagerie.

We will honor Cecil with a farewell reception in the Hampton/Newport News Room from 3-5 p.m. on Wednesday, January 15.  We invite all to stop by to extend their good wishes.  If you plan to attend, please rsvp to Ardena Jordan, 683-3415 or ajordan@odu.edu.
