The 2019 calendar will be unveiled during a reception recognizing the 12 honorees from 3:30-5 p.m. in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union.

Faculty selected are: Connie Hargrave, associate professor in the School of Education; Brenda Jones, university professor of art and visual culture; and Mayly Sanchez, associate professor of physics and astronomy; and Amy Slagell, associate dean for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
