Dear Chairman Greenawalt,

It is with sadness I learned of the passing of President Papadakis. My condolences to the entire Drexel family. I got to know Taki a number of years ago, and was impressed by his energy and vision for what could be. His accomplishments at Drexel are legendary, from starting a law school to acquiring a medical school to growing Drexel on all fronts. Drexel and Taki have been partners with NJIT on a number of initiatives. We will miss him, as I know will the Drexel community.
