Retirements Pay It Forward

Michael Dennis Browne imageThis spring, two professors and one long-time staff member retired from the Department of English. Thank you to all those who contributed to student fellowships and scholarships in their names. Donations to the new Edward M. Griffin Fellowship, in honor of Professor Griffin's 44 years of service, exceeded $25,000, which makes it eligible for the 21st Century Graduate Fellowship Match, a University program matching the student pay-out dollar for dollar, every year. Increased contributions to the Beverly Atkinson Scholarship for Non-Traditional English Majors, established in 2002, insure continued support for English undergraduates, even as Atkinson bids farewell after 37 years in undergraduate advising. And the Michael Dennis Browne Fellowship in Creative Writing, celebrating Professor Browne's 39 years of service here, is very close to meeting the $25,000 target for matching University funds. If you'd like to help meet that goal, or contribute to other funds, Give to English.
