Another President from Hyde Park!!
September 22, 2010
I am happy to announce that The American Physical Society has elected our very own Michael S. Turner vice president as of Jan. 1, 2011. The election puts Turner in line to serve later as president-elect, president, and then past-president in successive years.

In case you missed the Grant Park celebration, you can find the full story at the University of Chicago News.

Turner has requested that as of Jan. 1, 2011 we address him as "Mr. President." As his campaign manager, I will be assuming responsibilities as Chief of Staff. Plans for an appropriate inauguration celebration will be forthcoming.
