Sometimes Even Presidents Just Gotta Sing the Blues

Surprises abounded at the annual Dean’s Dance in February when faculty rock band Credit/No Credit performed a special tribute to President Richard Cook. But perhaps the biggest surprise of all was when Dr. Cook took the stage to sing “Soul Man.” The band is made up of Jennifer Hellwarth, associate professor of English; Ron Mumme, professor of biology; James Reedy, instructor in the Dance and Movement Studies program; and Joshua Searle-White, associate professor of psychology.
