So one of the real joys I have in posting in this forum is to recognize and congratulate faculty colleagues on their accomplishments. When Mary Ann Ryan completed her doctorate I was so very happy to share with you loyal readers her joy on that achievement. I now get to do that again by informing you that Avis Muhammad is now Dr. Avis Muhammad. Her doctoral journey is complete. Avis, a long serving adjunct faculty member in the English Department successfully defended her dissertation yesterday and now has the relief of the 900 pound gorilla being off of her back. For those of you who can remember the dissertation phase of your doctoral work, you know what I mean. For those of you who know Avis, please pass on your congratulations and best wishes.
To Dr. Avis Muhammad, well done!!!
