2 CIAC members that remember me. Dear Teri Eden has asked on behalf of some of you for me to give an update of my retirement status. First, If any of you plan on retiring in order to have more time on your hands, forget it as there is no truth that retired folks have a lot of time on their hands. I have never had more demands on my time and believe me I did not expect it. I retired December of 2006 and bought a place on a small lake in the Highland Lakes area of the Texas Hill country (Buchanan Dam). A rural area which would indicate a place to kick back and relax, do a little fishing and an occasional visit to Austin or San Antonio. (aprx 70 miles ) I bought a home on 1 acre of ground which had been beautifully landscaped by the previous owner. Over a hundred roses, dozens of various lilies, and I have now added plants such as Texas fire bush, Esperanza (Mexican yellow bells), Mexican Heather and several varieties of Lantana. and other plants of color that I find while walking the back rows of the Backbone nursery. I have over forty thousand square feet of St. Augustine grass which needs to be mowed every week of the growing season (ten months). I put in a boat dock with a lift and station for an irrigation pump in order to draw water for the landscaping and grass. I have 24 valve zones for water with 170 sprinkler heads. I have replaced three trees and built a two car carport with a 400 sq. ft workshop with some of the spare time I have. This has resulted in a loss of 45 pounds of body weight with a much improved back that many of you were aware was nearly crippling me. Shirley and I are very active in our church and literacy programs along with the Home Owner’s assoc. for our resort area. Well, that’s more than enough about me. I hope that any of you who are planning retirement find your years as fulfilling as mine have been. Do I miss articulation, yes and the folks but not the governing bodies that most of you are forced to work with. CIAC members that remember me.

3 I retired in October That November, we met my brother, Kort, in Philadelphia to try to track down our great-great grandfather for our cousin in San Jose who wanted a picture of GGG’s tombstone for his collection. We found the grave site but no stone because as the sexton explained, marble melts in acid rain, granite does not. We also found GGG was in a plot owned by his son-in-law and a daughter we knew nothing about. Apparently, when GGG came out west for gold, he left half the family behind in Pennsylvania. He didn’t find any gold but fortunately, left my great-grandfather in San Jose. The result of the Pennsylvania trip was that much of my retired time has been spent on family history. I find that articulation and admission training is a good rehearsal for this kind of research. My husband got hooked as well, so together we have traveled the Midwest…exotic to me… lots and lots of counties (15 in less than 200 miles) in small states, some lovely libraries (many of them are conversions of Carnegie libraries), and lots of very nice, helpful people (”Oh if the tornado comes this way we have a good storm cellar”). Lots of rain and hail and keeping an eye on NOAA…or at least I kept an eye on NOAA. We have cruised, as required of retirees, and went by Elbe from Prague to Berlin. We plan to go from Amsterdam to Prague using another river soon. We prefer the small boats and less hectic lifestyle. We have spent many lovely hours with the lovely people in the SFSU Retirees Association. They have a great events director and she always finds interesting things to do: walks around San Francisco, December lunch at the Palace and docent tours (led by SFSU graduates, of course) in the various museums, attendance at the all important St Patrick’s Day luncheon at the Basque Community Center (I did mention Julian is VP of the Retirees Assoc.?). I still see my former coworkers for lunch regularly. My very best wishes to all the articulation folks at CIAC during what have to be VERY trying times.

4 “Retiring” is what I do each night. That’s about it. I am on the full-time faculty at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, one of the 14 commonwealth State universities; sort of like the CSU system here in PA. It’s a great gig and I have some wonderful colleagues…but not nearly as zany and fun as my CA buddies in ArticuLand ! Of course, I am very active musically here and have recorded &performed in NYC, Philly, and Europe. I am blessed to be doing this with some famous jazz folks and am thrilled that they’re putting up with me. The attached photograph was taken at The Jazz Standard, one of the best jazz venues in Manhattan. Also, I am under contract with Scarecrow Press, a great music publishing house, and am writing a book called The Jazz Experience: A Listener’s Companion, due out possibly sometime in A great holiday gift for 100 of your most intimate friends. Kathleen and I, along with our cat Groucho, live in a lovely little house on four acres in the Pocono woods, about an-hour-and-a-half from New York City. We love having four seasons – although snow shoveling has not been our favorite winter sport! Miss you all and hope to see you at a CIAC bash someday. Michael Stephans formally of Pasadena City College & Kathleen Nelson, CCC Chancellor’s Office

5 Diane Glow, former AO, San Diego Miramar College I've spent lots of time travelling: Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Argentina, Antarctica, Bali, Egypt,Greece, Turkey, India, Eastern Europe, Baltic Capitols, and 3 trips to Africa. I spend Tuesdays on the water in the race committee boat setting up sabot boat racers and scoring as they cross the line; Thursday afternoons volunteer training shelter dogs to behave better and therefore be adoptable; two mornings a week working out with a trainer; on the board of the SD Humane Society and walk my dogs Charlie, my Briard, and Emma, my Bouvier des Flanders in between. I see a lot of plays - Old Globe and La Jolla Playhouse and do the symphony and opera. I also try to get in a lot of movies, mostly foreign and independents. Charlie and I were doing sheepherding for a few years, but it turned out I enjoyed it more than he did, so we don't do that anymore. I did finally get him certified as a therapy dog and plan to do something with him in that arena.

6 Attached is a family photo...me with my wife Briana and our son Lucas. Greetings to all of my friends in CIAC! I have been serving as Assistant Dean in the UCSB Graduate Division since October My responsibilities include oversight of graduate recruitment and admissions, academic services, graduate student financial support and employment, and business operations. I certainly know how to keep myself busy! My wife, Briana, and I are expecting our second son in May. Our first son, Lucas, is very excited to be a big brother. I hope this year's conference is a success. Wish I was there!! Christian Villaseñor Christian Villasenor former AO, UC Santa Barbara

7 Dr Jerry Humpert, former AO, Cuyamaca College In Memoriam Dr. Jerry Humpert was born in Haupstadt, a small town in rural Indiana on December 8, Jerry got his first teaching position in Tehachapi, California, in the late 1960's. He was active as a high school coach in Tehachapi, including serving one year as the men's varsity basketball coach during the the basketball season. Dr. Humpert left Tehachapi for a promotional opportunity at California State State University, Bakersfield. He earned a doctorate degree in Community College Administration from the University of Southern California, and was hired as Director of Admissions & Records at Grossmont College, and four years later Dr. Humpert was named Dean of Counseling. In 1984, Jerry joined the faculty at Cuyamaca College, and served as Counselor and Articulation Officer until his retirement in He was a key figure during Cuyamaca’s formative years, serving in many leadership positions, including Academic Senate President, Co-Chair of the Curriculum Committee, and Chair of the Accreditation Self-Study Committee. He was a mentor to countless faculty, staff, and administrators, and a counselor highly sought-after by students. While this information describes some of Jerry’s noteworthy professional services to the district, it does not scratch the surface of his personal contributions. His willingness to be involved with the lives of individuals at the deepest levels served as a magnet which drew people to him. He wanted to know the successes in people’s lives, but also kept a mental record of their needs. His services to students ably assisted the college’s reputation as a student-oriented learning center career, Jerry’s number one priority, always, was to his family.. Dr. Humpert passed away at the age of 62 on October 3, 2006 after a long battle with cancer. His loss cannot be filled, because people like Jerry are so rare.

15 Greetings CIAC Colleagues! While Sacramento continues to remain "home base," my exciting new "career" (retirement!) has afforded me the time and opportunity to indulge in two of my favorite activities -traveling, and spending a lot of "quality time" with my four grandchildren. Travel adventures since retiring have included two wonderful six- week trips to Europe (in 2008 and again in 2010, staying with friends in Austria, with side trips to Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Hungary, and The Czech Republic). I've also enjoyed fun and interesting "get-aways" to the Grand Canyon and Sedona, Yosemite (with several of my dear CIAC AO. friends), Utah and the national parks, New York City, the magnificent Canadian Rockies, Kauai, Mt. Rushmore and the West (with my granddaughter, Meredith), and annual vacations to my personal paradise (Maui) every February for whale watching, sunshine, and the beach. My four grandchildren, Reese and Kyle, (ages 6 and 3 who live in San Francisco) and Charles and Meredith (ages 15 and 13 who live in Los Angeles) are the great "loves of my life." I visit with them often and stay very involved in their rapidly growing and changing lives. In between travel and spending time with my grandchildren, I have undertaken some home remodeling projects (new windows, painting, landscaping, etc.), enjoy reading (currently the fascinating "Immortal Ute of Henrietta Lacks"), love knitting for the grandchildren and charity, and am very active in an organization that provides grants and scholarships for young women. Though retired from the daily workings of articulation, I make a point of keeping up-todate on the activities of CIAC and continue to be very proud and impressed with the professionalism and work of the organization, and the important role it plays in providing valuable and essential service to all segments of the educational community. I am well and happy, and life is good! Best wishes to all! Sincerely, Helena Bennett Helena Bennett, Former AO, CSU Sacramento In Salzburg

16 "Greetings from Botswana. My wife Geri and I are assigned to a district health office and community agency respectively, supporting the campaign against HIV/AIDS. AIDS affects 1 of every 6 Batswana and although drugs have extended the lives of many, there has been no effective means to eliminate the virus. Geri and I do our bit in promoting AIDS prevention outreach and supporting programs working with HIV positive youth. I have fond memories of CIAC, working with individual articulation officers and participating in the regional meetings. You are truly a unique group of committed and dedicated professionals. Best wishes for a great conference." "Greetings from Botswana. My wife Geri and I are assigned to a district health office and community agency respectively, supporting the campaign against HIV/AIDS.

17 Jane Leaphart forwarded some photos taken at Bryce Canyon last May. Helena Bennett, Marilyn Rowe, Jane Leaphart (all CIAC retirees) were joined by Carol Lee and Kathryn Barth (want-to-be CIAC retirees ;->) for a fun week-long vacation visiting Jane Leaphart in Utah. Note from Jane Leaphart Timing is everything! I retired from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in September My husband and I traveled across the USA for two months to visit family and friends. Then, we moved to our winter home in St. George, UT. The plan was to spend our winters in St. George (skiing and caring for my aging parents), our Spring/Summer in San Luis Obispo (where my husband still teaches part-time), and spend the rest of the year traveling around to seeing the USA and our children and grandchildren (I can’t believe we have 11 grandchildren now). Then, the economy and our plans were reshuffled. We found we need to relocate to St. George to be near my parents as much as possible. Regrouping – we thought we would sell our home in Atascadero, CA but the timing is wrong. Now what? Hum…I started looking for a part- time job; my “retirement” lasted just shy of one year. There is an up and coming college in St. George – Dixie State College of Utah. Formerly a two-year college, Dixie State is now a four-year college, and the State of Utah envisions the college will become a full-fledged regional university within the next five years (from 2-year to 4-year college to a university within ten years, amazing). It will be challenging. I applied for a job, and I was offered a different position as the Assistant Director of Admissions (a new, temporary position), working three-quarter time, supervising the two staff members—then my boss (the Director of School and Admissions) quit. I finished the one year temporary position. Then, there was an unexpected opening in the Registrar’s Office to serve as the Veterans’ Coordinator. I applied for it and got the job—I love working with the Vets and in the Registration Office (I don’t love working full- time—but it has its benefits). So, now I’m doing many of the familiar Registrar’s Office duties and caring for my parents. I stay in touch with the California Articulation scene. I still have the great opportunity to work on the annual CSU GE / IGETC Reviews for the CSU Chancellor’s Office with Ken O’Donnell (and company) and sometimes work with Christine Mallon on CSUCO projects, too. For fun, I get to quilt, ski and hike in the area, and have started to learn how to make Bobbin Lace, using my great aunt and great, great grandmother’s bobbins—lace making is not a lost art. I live in a beautiful part of the country with Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon not far way. Life is good! Jane Leaphart, Cal Poly, SLO, Helena Bennett, CSU Sacramento, Marilyn Rowe, Laney College Carol Lee & Kathryn Barth

18 It seems that when I worked I managed to have the time to do the laundry in a timely manner, clean the house, and keep up with the yard. Now I find there isn’t time for these “activities”. Someone helps with the yard and the house. When there are barely any clean clothes the laundry gets done. There certainly is something magical about retirement and the concept of time. I continue with my travels having gone from Antarctica to Zimbabwe. The most extraordinary experience was camping out in the Sahara desert during a full moon! I do have much more time for friends and thoroughly enjoy the enrichment of these relationships. Some volunteer work (currently on hold due to a broken wrist) has opened up new experiences as well. Remember, the best is yet to come, Marilyn Rowe Marilyn Rowe, former AO, Laney College The “Gals” Continued

19 Retirement grade - B+. My husband and I are mobile and in fairly good health although he is losing short term memory. Time flies by & I try to remember to treasure each day. For 6 years been spending each Wednesday in a painting class & have done many portraits - my specialty. One morning each week I participate in a La Jolla women's Bible study group, a wonderful pick-up/support system and a highlight of the week. Guilt gets me to Tai Chi each week and occasionally walking around the neighborhood. Have found that I enjoy keeping house, working in the yard and doing the things I had to crowd into the work week. We see our three children and their kids whenever possible - son, a lawyer (UCSD/USD Law School) In San Diego and wife have two college kids, our oldest daughter (UCSD/Loyola Marymount) and her husband and nine-year old live in LA; she is very busy as UCLA's Director of FInancial Planning for Health Services. Our youngest daughter is a private practice dermatologist (Berkeley/UCSF Medical School), wife and mother of two middle-aged kids (10 & 15) in Portland. All three started out in a San Diego community college so I am a big fan of the transfer system model. Am a regular San Diego opera and Old Globe theater subscriber. Enjoy occasional lunch outings with friends and dinners with my brother and wife in Del Mar. Life is good and God is good. Retirement grade - B+.

20 Dear Articulation Community, I must admit that I am having quite a good time in retirement. The picture that is shown is me with my sister at Fenway Park last summer. We had tickets on the Green Monster (if you don't know what that is please see the film-Field of Dreams and all will be explained). This was a great treat for me since I used to go to Fenway with my dad in the mid-fifties where, I'm told, I actually saw Ted Williams play. I have done a bit of traveling since leaving Cabrillo and plan to do a lot more this year. My husband who is not retired is getting a little nervous! I will be going to New York, Tassajara, Kauai and finally to Spain to walk part of the Camino de Santiago in September--yes September-for 30 years I could not travel during the academic year--what a great thing to be able to do that. I miss you all very much but I especially miss working with Carolyn and with all my Region IV friends. Take care and remember to be good to yourselves. Sincerely, Mary Ellen Mary Ellen Sullivan, formally of Cabrillo College

21 I am enjoying being retired....and that I go to lots of movies with a current articulation officer.....I have a picture on my facebook." I'm keeping quite busy with volunteer work and activities involving my church. More importantly, I now has six grandchildren and family is benefiting from my attention and care. Sharon Coniglio, former AO, Monterey Peninsula College

22 Although no longer working at UC Berkeley, I’ve not left the field of higher education. I work once a week at UCOP in the high school articulation unit, reviewing high school courses for the A-G course lists used by high school applicants to the UC and CSU systems. I’ve also worked at DVC as a counseling faculty, although less so now due to budget constraints. I love the counseling…wish there were more of it available! I’ve also travelled extensively, first in the Mediterranean and northern Europe. However, for the past three years I’ve travelled to China and on two of those trips I tutored English to students in a biomedical college in Xi’an. This May I’m returning to reprise the trip taken on my first trip to China, visiting Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai, with a stop of three days in Hong Kong. I’m also studying spoken Mandarin (tutored by a delightful lady from north of Beijing). Believe me, that makes the brain work! I’m still on the CIAC list-serve, so watch the comings and goings of the articulation community! It’s fun, particularly since I’m not directly involved!

23 Diane Glow and I have traveled to the Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia, & Estonia)and to St. Petersburg and Helsinki last year. This year we are leaving in May for Israel and Jordan! So, I am getting ready for that trip (having postponed it in Oct due to a broken foot that happened on the way to the theater). I wish I could travel more but I am have been on chemotherapy for a year. My last treatment will be April 29th and I am hoping for a 4-6 month break! If so, then I am hoping to het to Eastern Europe in the fall. But, I have been seeing a lot of plays, symphonies, musicals, and a few Operas with friends and I am an official member of a wine-tasting group and we meet 4 times a year for dinner and wine tasting! And I get to do all of this during the week because I don't have to work!!! :) I have been reading a lot too and having some work done around the house (updated a couple of bathrooms, had an office/library built that I have always wanted, etc.) I am also involved in the National Breast Cancer Coalition and attended a week-long training on the biology of cancer. It was fascinating and a bit overwhelming but I loved it. I am involved in being a patient advocated for research grant proposals. Very interesting! But, my biggest love and time is spent with my grandson, Logan (see attached picture). I take the train up to Glendale a few times a month and/or the family comes here to visit. This is what I retired for so my time spent with family is very precious. Give my love to all the AO's...I do miss seeing everyone but I don't miss the work!

So, I am getting ready for that trip (having postponed it in Oct due to a broken foot that happened on the way to the theater). I wish I could travel more but I am have been on chemotherapy for a year. My last treatment will be April 29th and I am hoping for a 4-6 month break! If so, then I am hoping to het to Eastern Europe in the fall. But, I have been seeing a lot of plays, symphonies, musicals, and a few Operas with friends and I am an official member of a wine-tasting group and we meet 4 times a year for dinner and wine tasting! And I get to do all of this during the week because I don't have to work!!! :) I have been reading a lot too and having some work done around the house (updated a couple of bathrooms, had an office/library built that I have always wanted, etc.) I am also involved in the National Breast Cancer Coalition and attended a week-long training on the biology of cancer. It was fascinating and a bit overwhelming but I loved it. I am involved in being a patient advocated for research grant proposals. Very interesting! But, my biggest love and time is spent with my grandson, Logan (see attached picture). I take the train up to Glendale a few times a month and/or the family comes here to visit. This is what I retired for so my time spent with family is very precious. Give my love to all the AO's...I do miss seeing everyone but I don't miss the work!

24 BOB FERRANDO’S STATEMENT: (former AO, UC Davis) Dear friends, I retired in July 2010, after 32 interesting and satisfying years with UC Davis. My wife, Melanie, also a UC Davis retiree, and I continue to live in Davis. I am lucky to have a life where I largely control my time and choose how to shape my days. My health is good; my outlook is positive; my prospects are not bounded. Now unchained from the academic calendar, my wife and I traveled in the fall and spring. More trips are coming. I get to read for pleasure during daylight hours. I do not have to cram garden work into weekends. I linger over that double espresso at Peet's, talking with friends or reading the next chapter in my current book. Most mornings when I am in Davis, you will find me walking through the beautiful greenbelt that winds through our town. On Monday mornings you will find me in a first-grade class taught by a friend of mine. I help students with their reading skills. This is a real kick. I think the kids think I am someone's grandfather. This new life of mine still is evolving. I cannot wait to see what happens next. But, I have not forgotten my past. I think fondly of the many wonderful people I worked with all over California during my years with UC Davis. I am happy to hear from folks. My address is: I am free for lunch. Take care. As a wise former colleague used to say to me, "Your time will come."

So in 2007 I left UC Berkeley for a position at the University of Hawaii – West Oahu, as a way to reconnect with my island “roots”. Although I enjoyed my year in Hawaii I discovered that it’s a great place to visit but expensive trying to live there, and I also missed the Bay Area. I’m now a Senior Admissions & Records Assistant at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill. Since I was a community college student before transferring to and working at Cal, I’m reconnecting with my transfer student “roots” and experiencing admissions and records from the community college perspective. One of the first things I did was get added back to the CIAC list serve; articulation officers are not only nice folks but are an invaluable resource. I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to know and to work with you in articulation. My very best to all of you!

26 Aiden Ely, CCC Chancellor’s Office I was the Chancellor’s Office Specialist for Transfer and Articulation from December 2000 until November Also, from June 2005 until May 2007, I served as Dean, Student Access and Retention at the Chancellor’s Office which included supervision of the Articulation and Transfer units. In May of 2007, I was hired by Folsom Lake College as the Dean of Student Development and Enrollment Management. I’m still connected to Articulation because in my current position I supervise our Articulation Officer, Bee Chacon. She and I work very closely on matters concerning Folsom Lake College articulation. Our Public Information Officer promised to come and take a current picture, but I’m still waiting. If he arrives soon, I’ll send it along. I have always felt that CIAC is one of the most effective intersegmental groups operating between the systems of higher education.
