Service to Learning Cal State Fullerton honored those who teach during a special recognition event held last week at El Dorado Ranch. Among the honorees were Mildred Donohue and Jerry Samuelson, who have been a part of the campus community for 40 years.

Cal State Fullerton honored faculty members for their dedicated years of service at a special awards ceremony held Feb. 20 at El Dorado Ranch. Among the honorees were two faculty members who have served with the university for 40 years: Mildred Donoghue, professor of elementary and bilingual education, and Jerry Samuelson, dean of the College of the Arts and professor of art.

Donoghue joined the campus in 1962 and was heavily involved in the development of the Elementary Education Department. A noted author, her textbook The Child and the English Language Arts, is now in its fifth edition. Thanks to her generosity, the university opened the Donoghue Children's Literature Center in the Pollak Library in spring 2001. She also has funded two scholarships - one for students pursuing a master's degree in education with a concentration in elementary curriculum and instruction, and the other for continuing elementary education students pursuing a multiple-subject credential.

Samuelson has served the campus community for four decades in several capacities, including that of charter director of the Main Art Gallery, chair of the Art Department from 1967 to 1975 and dean of the College of the Arts since 1975. He also served as a member of the CSU Arts Advisory Council to the Chancellor in 1984 and as an adviser to the chancellor from 1985-88. He is a founding board member of Orange County's Pacific Symphony Orchestra. During his tenure as dean, he has overseen the birth of the Grand Central Art Center in Santa Ana and has been a driving force for the construction of the Performing Arts Center that breaks ground this spring.

Recognized for 35 years of service is Sandra Sutphen, director of the Faculty Development Center and professor of political science. Sutphen has served as chair of the Academic Senate; was founding coordinator of the Women's Studies Program and held the position during the period in which the new degree was created.
