Marty's Message

I hope everyone enjoyed a nice spring break and Easter weekend! All of the Loy kids came home and it was a nice time with good conversation and lots of good food.
If you are like me, you have a home family and a work family. If I could, I would have arranged to have both of my families together, unfortunately, we can’t quite seat all 180 members around our dining room table! 
You will notice that we had a new member join the CPS family today. Her name is Cari Winn and you can read about her in the Monday Message. Please stop to introduce yourself and welcome her to the college.

Marty Loy,
Dean CPS
