Fall 2002

Winter Commencement, December 21, 2002.

On Monday, December 9, from 12:30-1:30 p.m., the College of Law will be showing support for the UA College of Nursing. The event will take place outside Room 115 at the College of Nursing. Everyone is invited to attend.

  • The event on Monday is part of a very moving gesture of spirit and support towards the College of Nursing on the part of the Appalachian School of Law (ASL) in Grundy, Virginia. Immediately following the tragedy that took place at the College of Nursing on October 28, students at ASL responded by making 400 care packages for the nursing students - one for each student. As many of you know, a similar tragedy occurred at their law school last January. Our law school offered to help facilitate the delivery of these gifts.
  • On Monday, Dean Massaro and Professor John Swain will present the care packages to the nursing students. (Professor Swain formerly taught at ASL and knows many of the students who made these care packages.) In addition, we will present each faculty and staff member with a rose. Also, at 12:40 p.m., we will present the Dean of the College of Nursing with $1,250 donated by our law school community to go towards a College of Nursing Memorial Fund. Many, many thanks to all of you who so generously contributed to this fund. Posted Wednesday, December 4, 2002.
