I wish you success in leading the University to it's next phase and look forward to being a part of what Stockton will become under your leadership! Lonnie Folks

Sincere congratulations on your recent inauguration and formal appointment as President of our wonderful Stockton University. I am so proud to be an alumnus and of the strides that Stockton has made over the years, and, even more important, to be working for you! As an alumnus, I cannot begin to express how moving it has been to witness your career progression, from working with EOF many years ago when I was a student, all the way to the presidency - how inspiring! Equally significant, is your demeanor with those with whom you interact. You are always gracious, respectful and truly a wonderful person. I am so blessed to know you and to be under your leadership. I wish you all the best during the your next chapter at Stockton. Please know that I will be available to support you in any way I can and I am grateful for the opportunities which you have enabled me to enjoy. Warm Regards Felicia Grondin '84, Associate Director, Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality & Tourism

Congratulations! The University is very lucky to have you at the helm.
I watched your speech via LiveStream - excellent job! It was like being right there in the room. I now feel like I am practically an alumnus of the University...
It has been a pleasure getting to know you and I look forward to the continued success of the University and the Investment Fund. Very Best Regards Seth Yablonovitz

CONGRATULATIONS DR. KESSELMAN: You have earned this great distinction and I am confident that you will lead Stockton University to an even higher standard of excellence in the future. I am so proud to know you and even more proud of your accomplishments that has led you to this wonderful and exciting opportunity as the PRESIDENT of our beloved SU. May God Bless You In Your LEADERSHIP Sir! Go Ospreys! Rick Robinson '86

Congratulations on your awesome accomplishments: from Stockton undergraduate to Stockton president. Best Wishes!

Dr. Jean W. Harris, 2007-08 ACE Fellow at Stockton

I helped to form and originate the rebirth of WLFR back in 1982. I graduated in 1986 and stayed with the school community via the radio station and the Performing Arts Center until 1992. The radio station was a very valuable experience and a vehicle for a myriad of opportunities that lead to me touring the country and finishing my novel. I am now the Director of Technology Transfer at Eastern Virginia Medical School and while that may seem like a twist in the plot the experiences I gained at and through Stockton inform my life today. It wasn't all just cables and microwaves as I took classes in art, philosophy, writing, religion and economics. I had such a tremendous experience with my time at Stockton University. It was a time of upheaval personally and then great success. It was very enriching academically, and privately. The faculty, staff and students I encountered were informed, passionate, deep and challenging and the challenges were just as important as the accolades. It was such an unbelievably rich experience for me that I love that school and the friends I made along the way. I learned so much from the entire community that I brim with fondness as I recall and remember a vast array of experiences and people that cut across the spectrum. It was a very welcoming and open community and I can not stress how important that is for anyone at any time. A place to plant yourself and grow is more than a motto that dresses down cynicism it is the essence of life. In some very real ways and certainly as a part of the mix of who I am I still ride that momentum as our experiences shape who we are. I enthusiastically recommend Stockton to anyone who will listen and wish you continued success and prosperity. Thank you for overseeing a life long stewardship of such a wonderful institution. Sincerely and with Respect

 Paul B. DiMarco, Author Journey Home, Class of 1986

I personally congratulate His Excellency Dr. Kesselman as the new President of Stockton University and wish him all the best and success in his new position.

I want to congratulate you on this incredible step and phase of your life!

I am confident that you will continue to bring Stockton down a path of continued growth and development and continue to achieve even higher levels of success. I wish you the best in your future, your happiness, health and legacy. I know you will make us all proud! God Bless! 

Dr. David J. Calabro '96

HK, I was very very excited to be able to participate in your inauguration installation. Not to mention that it was well earned on its face, but it meant a lot to me because of what you've done for me personally and professionally. It was also wonderfully enlightening to hear similar stories from others. Simply put, you are an impactful force that happens to reside in South Jersey, but who has had an impact on the world that extends far beyond what you could ever see or know. My hope and prayer for you is that you remain steadfast, aggressive, humble, effective, grounded and reachable. If you can do this, the advocates that you have around you will be that much more enabled to extend your impactful reach even further. Take care of yourself, and as I continue to say, I'm always here to help if you need me.

I came back to Stockton for a second degree because this school in the middle of the Pine Barrens will always hold a special place in my heart, and I believe it does in yours also! Take good care of us all and our home away from home! Thank you for always looking so positive and for saying hello to every student on campus like I have seen.

Dr. Kesselman, what a great honor to have the opportunity to congratulate you for such a great breakthrough in your professional career. I can’t help it but to think of the scripture that says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11.

I wholeheartedly believe that becoming the President of Stockton has always been your intended future, and there is no one else better to be at the head of this noble institution of higher learning. May you be endowed with the wisdom, knowledge and understanding from above to fulfill your assignment as President of this great institution, and that the plans of whomsoever intends to disrupt your assignment be rendered null always. 


Congratulations! In my time at Stockton, I have watched you lead in extraordinary ways as my Dean, Provost, and President.  I am looking forward to seeing how we continue to grow and develop as an institution under your leadership. I am so glad to be a part of this very special day

What a journey my friend!  

I remember the Mayflower Hotel as a college on the "Boards." I was an employee of the NJ Division of Taxation doing my duties in AC and I would see the Stockton students taking their breaks on those same "Boards." No doubt you were among those students.

Later, knocking on many, many doors during my campaigning days for township committee in the Forest Walk community our paths crossed. I was extremely proud to have helped you during your tenure on our local school board, trying to make sure the accuracy of school records. You had my total support when you decided to take a run for our township committee. Another term and I am sure that you would have joined our "Mayors Circle".

 I was again honored to be asked to help out at SRI/ETTC providing whatever support I am able, to assure success to a program you instituted. I was dismayed attending your farewell but it was a joyous farewell at that. On your way to the far reaches of the north, so to speak. But, WHAT? You are not leaving after all. (I kinda’ had that feeling it was going to go that way). Stockton University has won again. I wish you well. May all your visions come true. You have my full support.

Congratulations! Enjoy this moment. It is well-deserved. We all take pride in your accomplishments. Be well and have a happy new year! Steve Weinstein

To my Colleague and friend Harvey Kesselman: It pains me to be unable to attend the Inauguration. I want to witness the excitement, the parade, the unveilings; I want to participate in the enjoyment, the celebration, the literal song and dance; I want to congratulate you and witness your joy as we honor the University, its history and now you as ushering in its future. I will sit elsewhere on this day and dream myself into the event – know that I am indeed there with you and Lynne. I know that you will “take care” of the University because, given your history, you are uniquely situated to connect all the moments of her life. You know what Stockton has been and the true beauty of the vision that established her, you have lived through the many years that have modified the expression of that vision – sometimes for best and sometimes for worst, you are therefore capable of knowing Stockton as few others can. Spanning the whole, you can embrace the whole and can, therefore, truly “make us whole”. Find her soul and carry that with you as we make real once again the vision that is our Stockton. Congratulations. With admiration and deep affection Anne F. Pomeroy, Professor of Philosophy

What to Write in a Congratulations Card
