Whereas, he has worked closely with others in the higher education community, serving several terms as chairman of the Higher Education Legislative Liaison Organization where he was instrumental in adding the term "organization" so that it could be called the HELLO group; and
Whereas, Ed has become known as a man who lives life to the fullest and has the stories to prove it; and
