Retired and Soon-to-Be-Retiring EPC Faculty Honored at Banquet

Recently retired and soon-to-be-retiring EPC faculty were honored on December 2, 2021, at the EPC Awards Ceremony & Retirement Celebration Luncheon.

Students, faculty, and staff were invited to the luncheon to celebrate the six retirees, and to recognize this year’s graduate student winners of EPC Awards and scholarships. For more about our student winners, see article: Graduate Students Awarded at EPC Banquet.

Department Head and Professor, Dr. Jeff Cochran, along with Dr. Merilee McCurdy and Dr. Mitsunori Misawa remarked on the many scholarly contributions, student mentorships, and distinguished honors each retiree has brought to the department through their years of service.

For more details about each of these retiring faculty members, see the event program (pdf).
