CFA Magazine 2020
Trail•bla•zer [ treyl-bley-zer ] (n.)
One whose thoughts, ideas, works or actions transform others' perceptions of what is possible.
One who pushes the boundaries of their field; does things previously unthought of; creates something new for those who follow.
Letter from Dean Dan Martin
"With this issue of CFA Magazine, I wrap up ten years of service as the Dean of the College of Fine Arts. It has been the best decade of my life. No doubt about it. You cannot imagine the depth of my gratitude for the many hours of joy, reflection, relief, and inspiration that I have experienced during my tenure as dean."
