We are very sorry to inform you that Professor Elizabeth (Susie) Balser, faculty member in Biology for more than 20 years, passed away last month following an extended illness. Susie was recognized as an expert on the anatomy of echinoderms. Her passion for invertebrate animals inspired the creation of three new courses at IWU. Both as an instructor and as a research mentor, Susie challenged students to carefully study the natural world and make their own discoveries.
Daniel Armstrong and Sarah (Keister) Armstrong, both of ’08, welcomed Bea Elizabeth to the world on March 6, 2018. Congratulations, Dan and Sara, on your newest Tiny Titan!
Renee Scherer ’08 and husband Ross Dexter welcomed their first child, daughter Natalie Kate Dexter, on March 4, 2018 in Santa Clara, CA. Congratulations, Renee and Ross, on your newest Tiny Titan!
