Andrea Kirshman, Retention and Student Success
Surface low pressure brings a chance of a sporadic shower or two today, but the majority of the day should be dry with a mix of clouds and some sun. Reasonably comfortable with a high of about 82.
On behalf of the Department of English and friends of Professor Emeritus, Dennis Bonser, we are saddened to share that Dennis passed away Wednesday, Aug. 10. A Funeral Mass was held Aug. 19. Memorial contributions may be sent to the Kutztown University Foundation, P.O. Box 151, Kutztown, Pa 19530, with designation to the Men’s & Women’s Basketball programs. Read more about Dennis' 2005 Hall of Fame induction here. Visit his memorial page at the following link.
