- This summer WLLC was sad to say goodbye to Professor of Spanish and Department chair, Joan Turner. Dr. Turner retired June 30 after having served the department for 19 years, seven of those years as chair. She has been a tremedous asset to the department and will be sorely missed!!
- She hands over the reins of Department Chair to Steve Bell, also Associate Professor of Spanish and Director of the Latin Studies program. WLLC is excited to continue moving forward under Dr. Bell's leadership.
- Congratulations also to Richard Murie (pictured with his thesis committee), who has just passed his oral exams in Spanish. Richard has many accomplishments to his credit and, and now among them is that he is the oldest person to have received a Masters Degree at UA.
