A note of thanks from Heather Mol: As a temporary faculty member experiencing acculturation into the society of academia, I can’t thank you enough for extending your welcoming support to me. To each faculty member that stepped in to cover my classes, donated days so I could recover without worrying about finances, sent cards and emails, and to the Nursing Department for the beautiful plant, THANK YOU! I am overwhelmed with the kindness you have shown.
