Our Sympathy to Marcia Hittner

Sydell Kane, the mother of our dear friend and colleague, Marcia Kane Hittner, died on October 2, 2012. She was 82 and a lifelong resident of Forest Hills NY.

Sydell was a beloved and respected long time educator in the public schools of NYC, serving as a teacher, administrator, mentor and consultant, continuing her work right up until she became ill.

Marcia and her family celebrated Sydell’s life in a funeral and burial last week in the tradition of her strong Jewish faith.

Please keep Marcia and her husband Ellis and the rest of her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers this week.

Cards may be sent to Marcia at her home address below.

Race to Raise the Most

It’s October and the College of Arts and Letters has launched the 11th annual Race to Raise the Most. For the last eleven years, during the month of October, the College has had a  fundraiser for those in St. Joseph county who cannot afford mammograms and/or diagnostic screenings. This will be our twelfth Race and to date we have raised approximately $90,000.00! The Race is set up as a friendly competition between the halls and various buildings within the College, so you can support your favorite departments. Here is a link for our blog: http://al-race-to-raise-the-most.blogspot.com/  where you can check out all the great fundraisers being held by the teams.
