Farewell Associate Dean Cindy Cerrantano!

It’s farewell but not goodbye to Cindy Cerrentano, Associate Dean of Instruction at Harold Washington College.  I learned long ago that in the higher education community, we are a close knit group, and we maintain colleagues across institutions, and across the world.

Cindy’s team threw her a great farewell party – thank you so much Meghan Chandler and Jackie Werner for your efforts!

Cindy impacted a lot of people at HWC, including full-time faculty, adjunct faculty, staff and most importantly — students.

Floyd Bednarz, long-time part-time faculty at HWC commented, “we had a true advocate in Cindy.”  Floyd was right because Cindy spearheaded a great professional development opportunity for adjuncts with the help of Professor John Hader.

I will miss Cindy so much – as a professional colleague and as a friend.  Cindy – we all wish you the best and look forward to all the great things you will accomplish in Kansas!

— President Margie Martyn
