December 2012 Update
Angel Tree Holidays much brighter for many because of U of M program
Something as simple as a pair of socks helped Sheila Hall realize the importance of volunteer work. The first year the U of M hosted the Angel Tree program, Hall noticed the “needs and wants” list of a senior citizen included essential clothing items — not fancy gift requests.
Regina Cade On permanent loan: librarian garners top award
When Regina Cade’s name was announced at the U of M employee recognition ceremony in Rose Theatre in late October, she didn’t react.
Let's Talk Health Logo Medical information offered through "Let's Talk Health"
Everything after the words “you have cancer” is still a blur to Gretchen Norling Holmes, even seven years later.
Jarred Problem-solver Jarred lauded for work
When Margaret Anne Jarred steps out of her car each workday, she can’t help but be excited. She’s had a “love affair” with the U of M since 1966, when her husband proposed to her at a Memphis vs. Ole Miss football game.
Klesges Profile: Dr. Lisa Klesges
In the next several issues of Update, we are profiling the deans of our colleges and schools. In this issue, we highlight Dr. Lisa Klesges, dean of the School of Public Health.
