Memorial Service Friday for Cecilia Welna
A memorial service will be held on Friday, Oct. 19, for Cecilia “Ceil” Welna, professor emerita of mathematics, former dean of the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) and the College of Arts and Sciences, and a beloved faculty member for more than four decades.
The memorial service will take place at 3 p.m. in Wilde Auditorium.
Welna died in March 2012 at the age of 84. Among her many achievements, Welna was a long-time chair of the Mathematics Department; she served as dean of ENHP (then known as the College of Education and Allied Services) from 1982 to 1991; and during some of that time she also served as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. In 1980, Welna became the first-ever recipient of the Roy E. Larsen Award for Excellence in Teaching, the University’s highest teaching honor.
