Catching up with some CAH emeriti professors

Emeriti brunch Fall 2017

Several Arts and Humanities emeriti faculty members gathered for brunch on Wednesday, Oct. 25, with CAH student ambassadors Chris Carreon and Yeng Xiong, Dean Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval, Associate Dean Honora Chapman and several members of the Dean’s Office staff.

The group met at Marie Callender’s Restaurant and Bakery right by the Fresno State Campus and shared memories of their time at Fresno State and updates of what they are doing in retirement.

New art education professor Ahran Koo also joined the group, along with development team Moon-ja Yunouye and Becky Brown.

“The brunches are meant to elicit feedback on current initiatives and facilitate a valuable historical perspective of our disciplines,” said Dean Jiménez-Sandoval.

Another group had lunch yesterday — Linguistics emeriti faculty members Dr. Jack Zeldis and Dr. Fred Brengelman met with Katrina and Denise Bissett.

Denise is the department administrative assistant for the Linguistics Department. Katrina is her daughter, a student ambassador for the College of Arts and Humanities, and a double major in music and philosophy who will graduate in spring 2018.

“The linguistics faculty have known Katrina since before she was born,” Denise said, “and have been a huge influence in her life.”
