Marty's Message

Each year, we select one College of Professional Studies faculty or staff member to honor and highlight their community work.  We call this person our CPS Faculty Hero.   

Pam Terrell is our 2019 faculty hero in honor of her work with Miles of Smiles. In 2017, Pam and student Allie Fontana founded the organization on campus. Since then, Pam has led many of our students in activities that educate nurses, birth centers and lactation consultants and support families of a children born with cleft palate.

Check out the CPS Heroes website to see short videos and learn more about Pam’s work and that of other past award recipients.
