Faculty-Staff Retirement Luncheon 12-9-10 Album II  

Biology Lab Manager Cindy Munford

Treves Professor of Biology Eric Wetzel said: In the 30 years since Cindy accepted the position of lab preparator for the biology department, what started as a position simply prepping labs has morphed into one that has included Cindy's overseeing the budgets of introductory biology courses, managing untold numbers of undergraduate lab assistants, caring for live plants, animals, and microbes, overseeing student projects, arranging for equipment service, and carrying out pilot experiments for us as we came up with new lab ideas.

"She has stepped up on various occasions to serve as a visiting instructor of biology, and she’s routinely worked for the common good of the department and the college by volunteering to help out on numerous assignments.

"Cindy’s level of detail and organization has made it easy for us to teach introductory biology lab. Yet at least as important as all of this,Cindy has been a devoted wife, mother, and daughter. In all of these things, Cindy, we thank you for your desire for things to work best for the students, the biology faculty, and the College."
