I will miss these two very much. They have been an inspiration and a help to me, and I have enjoyed the programs that they created on campus and their company. Faculty Development courses won't be the same without Myrna announcing that there is no conflict of interest and Nancy sitting in the class! Nancy and Myrna have certainly earned some time to play, but the holes that they leave in the campus will be hard to fill.
