Following the announcement made earlier this week, the Honors College is sad to announce that our Dean Dr. Garbutt and his wife Christine Garbutt will be leaving WVU and transitioning to Oklahoma State University for the upcoming academic year. The Garbutts have been so influential in the Honors College and the Honors Hall family, and we would like to show them our appreciation. All Honors College members are invited to an informal reception being held in the Honors Hall lobby next Tuesday, April 29 from 1-3 PM. This will allow us to give the Garbutts a warm send-off and wish them luck in this big transition. There will be ice cream and snacks provided.
If you would like to attend, please fill out THIS FORM. You can also leave words of appreciation for the Garbutts through this form.
