                                      Delta Mu Delta, Dr. Walter Rohrs. Walter personified the purposes and goals of DMD, and no one
                                      loved this organization more than he. His absence leaves a tremendous void, but his legacy of service to
                                      students and DMD, as well as his determination to see the society more involved with the business
                                      community. Walter has set the bar high for those left behind. (For more on Dr. Rohrs, turn to page 5)
