|Karen and Tom Smile at the Idea of Grading Nothing|
Faculty and students from EML as well as well-wishers from the campus and St. Joseph community gathered yesterday, April 22 to celebrate the teaching careers of Karen Fulton and Tom Pankiewicz.

Karen began part-time work at Missouri Western in 1985. In 1986, Karen was hired as an assistant professor of English. While rising through the ranks of associate and then full professor, Karen was instrumental in the development of the ENG 100 program. Karen also served as the university's Study Away Director and chaired the department's literary studies program. Eager to get a jump on the theater season, Karen retired last December.

We hope that they'll come by the department and share some of their newly won free time. We were glad that retired faculty Frances Flanagan, Ken Rosenauer, Ann Thorne, and Rosemary Hoffman could be on hand to welcom Tom and Karen into the club.
