Retail Manager, Cornell Campus Store (Retired)
George recently retired after 45 years of service at the Cornell campus store. What was his favorite thing about working at Cornell? The students! Meeting all the diverse students from around the world, hearing their stories and where they came from. He worked a lot with art and architecture students, and didn't like sending a student to class if they didn't have what they needed. George says that working with students gave him energy so that he never felt himself getting older as the years went by.
