Marty's Message

We recently held an annual event that we affectionately call Former Faculty Fest. At this event, we reconnect and share successes with our retired faculty and staff members–a very special group of people.  
I am glad that our retired folks take the time to stop in, because with each visit they bring part of our history back to us. It is a pleasure to talk with these people because they were the change-makers who helped us grow into what we are today. Their stories exemplify the best of our history.
This year's Former Faculty Fest was once again a nice opportunity to celebrate where we are, remember where we have been, and say thank you to the people who have brought us here.
Marty Loy,
CPS Dean
