The October inauguration of Richard S. Rafes as president of the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine was a mini-reunion of UNT’s higher education doctoral program. Pictured with delegates to his inauguration from other institutions of higher education, Dr. Rafes (’90 Ph.D.) is fourth from the right. Russell Porter (’04 Ed.D.) is on his right and I am on his left. Dr. Porter is dean of graduate studies and continuing education at Shepherd University in West Virginia, and I am vice president for Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine at Seton Hill. Dr. Rafes is the former senior vice president for administration at UNT.
