Cynthia Walker expresses her appreciation of the department’s support for her as her daughter had brain surgery over the break. She has recovered wonderfully, and is back at TWU, feeling better than she has in years. It was a very stressful time, and everyone was so encouraging. We celebrate her recovery with you Cynthia!!
