Joy Reilly Retirement Celebration

October 28, 2016
Joy Reilly

Dear Students, Colleagues, Alumni, and Friends,

Joy Reilly has shared with me that she plans to retire at the end of autumn semester. I know I can speak for all of us when I say that her spirit and her commitment to her students will be deeply missed.
Please join us for wine and hor d'oeuvres on Friday December 2, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. in the Drake Performance and Event Center River Den as we celebrate and recognize Joy’s many years of service. A brief program highlighting her enormous impact on countless students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the central Ohio theatre community will start at 5:30. 

We plan to present Joy with a memory book with photos and remarks from you about her impact on your lives and careers. In lieu of gifts, Joy has requested donations to the Roy Bowen Theatre Fund number 600676. Please take a moment now to RSVP for the event, leave a note to Joy, and consider a donation to the Roy Bowen Theatre Fund by November 11, 2016. 

Thank you,

Janet ParrottChair
Associate Professor
