Dr. Klingner speaking at the reception honoring him as Distinguished Professor:
“Because much is expected from those to whom much has been given, I know what this honor entails. As long as I am able, I’ll pass on what I know and add to it what I can through teaching, service and scholarly contributions to this great University and the wider communities we are privileged to serve together.”
