Nov. 11, 2016

A message from President Ellen Junn and Dr. Dave Colnic

Dear Campus Community,

As many of you may have heard, our campus suffered a tragic lost last week. The son of Dr. Nancy Hudspeth, one of our beloved faculty members, was hit and killed by a car while crossing Monte Vista Avenue near Stanislaus State. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Nancy and her family. We grieve alongside them as they deal with the devastating loss of their son, Ben. 

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Monday November 14, 2016 at First Presbyterian Church located on 2619 N. Berkeley Ave. Turlock, CA 95382. Lunch will follow the service. Everyone from our campus community is invited to attend. For those interested, donations can be made in Ben's memory to the Sotos Syndrome Support Association (SSSA) at sotossyndrome.org, or to Friends of Turlock Library, PO Box 1260, Turlock, CA 95382. Additional information on the memorial service and donation opportunities can be found here.

Please join us in wishing Nancy and her family peace during this difficult time.

Dr. Ellen Junn, President, and Dr. Dave Colnic, Department of Political Science and Public
