It is with deep regret but warm wishes that the Department of Spanish and Portuguese announces the retirement of Myrna Vélez. Myrna has taught with us for 35 exceptional years. Her knowledge, wisdom, kindness, and humor has touched the lives of students, faculty, and staff alike. We do not know what we will do without her!

A party was held in her honor on June 13th, celebrating her many years with us. Please enjoy our pictures of the event, and join us in wishing Professor Vélez a very happy retirement. 

Many adventures and happiness, Myrna, and a big THANK YOU for all you have done!
