This past Saturday, the University of Michigan-Dearborn’s Student Government and Student Activities Board joined the Athletic Department to honor recently retired Vice Chancellor Stanley Henderson.

In a hockey game against Kent State, students, staff, faculty, and alumni were invited to honor “the students’ Vice Chancellor. In the spirit of the Vice Chancellor’s last game, those invited were encouraged to wear argyle or striped socks and suspenders.

While the UM-Dearborn men’s ice hockey team lost 2-3 in their game against Kent State, it wasn’t a losing night for all. Before the first period, free raffle tickets were being given to students who were attending the game for prizes.

Prior to the start of the game, Vice Chancellor Henderson spoke a few words regarding his care for the university and its athletics, among many thanks.
Between the first and second periods, the raffle winners were announced. The prizes were $10 gift cards to the campus bookstore and Picasso. The winners included Janet Browne, a member of Student Government, and Matt Ramey, of Tau Kappa Epsilon.

The Athletic Department also gifted the Vice Chancellor with a personalized jersey as a symbol of gratitude for his years of support and to honor his achievements on campus.
