The University of Illinois Springfield College of Education and Human Services honored two emeriti faculty during a reception on June 14, 2011. Emeriti faculty members James H. Cherry, Ed.D. and Rosamond Robbert, Ph.D. will have their portraits hung on the CEHS Wall of Fame.
Larry Stonecipher, Ph.D., Dean of the College of Education and Human Services praised the two for their accomplishments, and then turned the microphone over to them. He asked them a series of questions about their time at UIS and their professional accomplishments. The event was highlighted by the unveiling of the two portraits.
