Celebrating the future, and the past

Filed under: Uncategorized — ATH @ 2:44 pm

At the recent Faculty Dinner, members of the department celebrated with our new faculty colleagues: Professors Daniel Cook, Darcy Irvin, Jeff Solomon, Suzanne Warren, and John Wesley. All are now installed in Wyatt Hall and looking forward to an exciting and vibrant semester. We encourage you to stop in and introduce yourself to them.
Also at the recent event, the University honored our esteemed and beloved colleague Peter Greenfield with the Walter Lowry Award for Distinguished Service. Professor Greenfield’s myriad accomplishments, and his exceptional generosity to his department and the university over his 28 years here, were celebrated with an introduction by Professor and Faculty Senate Representative Tiffany MacBain, a standing ovation from his faculty colleagues across the campus, and the presentation of the handsome plaque shown above (which he had to return for display here on campus, but which now bears his name, along with that of Professor Emerita Florence Sandler, a prior English department recipient). So it was a night of hellos and, if not of goodbyes, then of ’til we meet agains.
