It is a HUGE privilege to announce that Ms. Gail Renardson has been conferred the rank of Professor Emeritus.  This is the highest honor that can be achieved by a faculty member, and carries some benefits as well as prestige.  In conferring this rank on Prof. Renardson, UAA Chancellor Tom Case wrote the following in the letter to Prof. Renardson:

“This high honor is in recognition of your distinguished career at the University of Alaska.  You have served the university long, providing exemplary teaching, research and service.  UAA regards you to be among its most valued assets.  Accordingly, we invite you and encourage you to continue to contribute to your discipline and to the academy. . . . Warmest congratulations to you on your appointment to Professor Emerita.”

PWSCC is lucky to have found Prof. Renardson in 1980, and even more lucky to have held onto her.  Her contributions to PWSCC have been wide and deep, from establishing a chapter of PTK and assisting in the founding of the Last Frontier Theatre Conference, to building a service learning component into her classes and encouraging students to serve their communities.  Her contributions to students’ lives are immeasurable, and her collegiality has been noted by all.

Prof. Renardson will continue to serve PWSCC and its students, teaching part time.  Fortunately, even though she’s retiring, we’re not losing her completely.

Thank you for your service, Gail – and congratulations!
