At its meeting on Friday, Beloit’s Board of Trustees approved the tenure and promotion of Francesca Abbate'90, in the Department of English, and Heath Massey, in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies.
Of Abbate, one individual wrote, “This is a person who exemplifies Emerson’s notion of the ‘ideal teacher,’ that one who leads her students out of the dark of unknowing, and does it with a pleasure that makes pleasure.”
According to one of Massey’s students, “When I look back and try to remember those teachers who have had a great influence on me – Heath is surely gonna be up there.”
Congratulations, Fran and Heath!
Also at Friday’s meeting, the trustees reappointed Jim Sanger, who will continue serving as chairman of the board.
