Petty would be proud:
It was a night to remember


It's no easy feat to riff on a Tom Petty song. But Dean Rich lyons took a stab at at doing just that when he played "It's Good to be Dean" to the tune of Petty's "It's Good to Be King" at the 2011 Berkeley-Columbia Executive MBA Gala, held at the Ferry Building on San Francisco's Embarcadero. The dean's performance, stunning venue, and chance to reconnect made it an unforgettable evening for BCEMBA aumni and friends.
