Also, if you use Google to search on the internet, youll want to read about UK alum Matt Cutts. Finally as you know by now, UK President Lee T. Todd ]r. announced his plans to retire in ]une 2011. For me, this news was met with sadness and so much gratitude for both Dr. Todd and his wife, Patsy. They are so much a part of what makes UK great. When I think of the Todds, one of the Hrst words that comes to my mind is accessibility They have always made themselves available to students, faculty and staff and alumni. They never shied away from interaction; they welcomed, even sought it. There are many other words that can be used dedicated, welcoming, and caring are just a few. President Todds Top 20 vision has made this university and the state of Kentuclqr a better place. They will both be greatly missed. We have always been proud to call them alumni. Its been an honor to call them the president and Hrst lady of the University of Kentuclqr. And we will always be proud to call them Wildcats! Go Cats!
