Farewell Message From George Zeeff in the Criminal Justice Department

To my friends at GRCC:

Some of you know that I planned upon retiring in December of this year. Some very good things have occurred in my life that changed that time table. We very quickly sold our house in GR and bought a lake house in North Carolina. So, I am retired as of today.

In my 28 years here, I have made many wonderful friends that I will both miss and remember always. This has been a wonderful place to work largely because of the great people who work here.

I will miss you.

George F. Zeeff
