At the December 2008 meeting, members of the association voted to present a $1000 work of art to the university in commemoration of the centennial. Martha Caldwell has selected a Matisse print "The Perruche and the Sirene," to be placed in the Performing Arts Center. It can be viewed at www.georgetownframeshoppe.com, modern artists, late works of Matisse. The work is located on the second page.
A group of our members, aptly known as Emeriti Friends, stand ready to provide transportation to medical appointments for other emeriti. They will provide transportation for those members unable to drive to our meetings. Contact: Mary Lou Wiley firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our long awaited film interview with each Emeriti association member will take place this academic year. With the assistance of JMU Division of University Advancement staff, tentative plans have been made to schedule an approximately forty-five minute interview on camera with each faculty member; editing will occur later. Interviews will be placed on the JMU website to be accessed by alumni and others who wish to know about us and our experiences at JMU.
Sherry King (email@example.com) of the Office of Parent Relations will schedule appointments for taping these interviews. Be ready to respond positively to Sherry when she contacts you.
Each year the Emeriti Association presents a $2,000 unrestricted grant to a JMU faculty member who has made significant professional contributions over time. The award randomly rotates among colleges, with the selection made by the dean of the college.
