Letter from the Editor
Hello and Welcome to the first issue of the NJASFAA Newsletter for 2003/2004.
This year actually starts with an ending of sorts. For the first time, NJASFAA
and the entire financial aid community begin a new year without the services
of Dick Solomon. Since Dick actually began his financial aid career prior to
existence of an actual Financial Aid Office, this is indeed a first. It can
be safely stated that Dick had a unique personality, but, above all, there
was no person more dedicated to the profession and to ensuring that those of
us on the front lines understood the correct way to deliver funds to our students.
Of course, with every loss, there is some good news to report. With Dick’s
retirement, the Conference Committee can save money on all the ribbons they
don’t have to buy to account for all of Dick’s years of service.
I hope you enjoy this first issue of the Newsletter. I am also making a request
for articles for upcoming issues. The success of our Newsletter will only
be enhanced by the contributions of all the organizations members. All submissions,
no matter the subject or length, will be accepted.
