Marty's Message

Most everyone in our college knows that our Assistant to the Dean for Communication Eva Donohoo is expecting her baby soon and as soon as that little baby girl arrives, Eva will begin her maternity leave. She expects to be away until May.

Eva has arranged to cover several duties and has assigned others to student employees. She also plans to monitor email and work part-time from home, so don't forget to send her your department news. However, we have decided to suspend the Monday Message until she returns and we will be without her day-to-day services.   

If you have specific communication needs while Eva is away, please do not hesitate to contact the college office and we will do the best we can to accommodate you. 

Please join me in wishing Eva a healthy delivery and all the best with her newborn.
Marty Loy,
CPS Dean
