Certificates and Mementos

My office walls are covered with certificates and many awards adorn the shelves.  While I appreciate the gesture of goodwill, I cannot help but wonder what utility they have.  Of course it is a reminder of achievement.  But I think a cash price to the institution is more meaningful, with perhaps a small certificate!

Institutions are always in need of funds for their upkeep, for salaries, for new productions, for costumes – the list is endless!

So let’s rethink certificates!
