Member Highlight

When longtime AOM Member and former AMJ Editorial Board Member Don Conlon’s favorite AMJ mug broke, his daughter Kelly knew how important replacing it would be. She reached out, and AOM created a replacement mug for Don and sent some additional “swag” items for a Father’s Day gift box--a small gesture to thank him for his membership and volunteer contributions over so many years.


Don’s daughter Kelly was thrilled with the sentiment: “With each new gift he said, ‘Man, all of my professor pals are going to be so jealous!’ Thank you so much again for all of your help with making this a Father's Day we'll always remember!”
