Coming in the Next Issue:
We're growing! The fall 1998 issue of inSpire will be bigger and better than ever! Four feature stories will cover a range of topics, three that focus on the theme of remembrance -- PTS alums who are former Peace Corps volunteers reflect on their experiences, the friends and family of the late David Crawford remember him, and the community considers the service of a number of faculty and administrators who retired this year. We will introduce a new column of alumni/ae recollections, "Funny You Should Remember," and close with David E. Willis's moving poem, "On Taking Things Granted for Granted," which he read at the retirement dinner in May 1998. Remember, you can read it here, on the web!
