Dear PhD Students,

I am writing because I will be leaving the Department to assume a 
full-time position in the College of Science.  I have gotten to know 
many of you personally and each of you has taught me something positive 
that I will take with me.   I will still be on campus so please feel 
free to stop by my new office in David King Hall (3rd floor) or shoot me 
an email.  I still get an hour lunch.  I will begin my new job this 
Wednesday, August 25.  If you have any last minute requests, please let 
me know today or tomorrow.  If you need anything after Tuesday, please 
email Dr. Cynthia Kierner, your new Graduate Director.  Good luck to 

Again I will miss you all and have enjoyed working with you all for the 
past 8 years!! Stop in to say bye!!
