EVMS came together Dec. 14 to pay tribute to outgoing Provost and Dean Gerald J. Pepe, PhD. President Harry T. Lester, above, left, joined representatives from the faculty, students, staff and alumni to commend Dr. Pepe for his leadership.

A crowd of some 250 turned out for the ceremony. President Lester called it a privilege to work with Dr. Pepe. "He is a humble man of real integrity and very fine character," President Lester said.

Dr. Pepe is returning to his post as Chair of the Department of Physiological Sciences. Richard V. Homan, MD, begins his tenure as Provost and Dean Jan. 9.
