The HVCC READS 2016 program culminated when author Jacopo della Quercia visited the campus on Wednesday, April 13. The author visited two classes, shared lunch with a small group of students, faculty members, and employees, gave a lecture, answered questions, and socialized with audience members at a reception.
The entire day proceeded smoothly, and I need to thank various individuals and departments for their assistance on that day and during the course of the entire HVCC READS 2016 program:
President Drew Matonak, who initially funded the program in 2006 and 2007 and has always supported it through the years.
My fellow committee members –Brenda Hazard, Cynthia Koman, Gail Roberts, Marlo Daniels, Mary Kate Robinson, and Ann Carrozza – for their input and assistance throughout the academic year.
Deb Renfrew and the Communicatons and Marketing Staff, which promoted the program.
Madison Palmer for her artistic work on the posters and the entire Graphics Design and Printing Services Department for printing the posters.
Sandi Eyerman for her help in maintaining the HVCC READS Community in the Hudson Valley Portal.
Mara Lefebvre, Charmaine Darmetko, Erin Hatter and the Institutional Services and Events Staff for scheduling the luncheon, the lecture, and the reception afterwards.
Marlo Daniels and Rachel Bornn, who allowed the author to visit their classes.
