Over the past few weeks, the UMW community showed up in a big way for 9-year-old Balian from Western Wayne Elementary School in Indiana, who just had his ninth birthday where none of his 30 classmates attended. Dr. John Broome, associate professor for the College of Education here at UMW, heard of Balian’s story from a close friend and sent out emails to his students requesting that they make as many birthday cards as they can for Balian.
The College of Education has recently found a new and permanent home in Seacobeck Hall. This news comes after a lot of effort by the College of Education to find a building that could be dedicated to the university’s education program.
