Following a tenure of nearly 65 years combined in service to the college, Prof. of Classics and Fine Arts, Virginia Anderson-Stojanovic and Prof. of Psychology, Beverly Ayers-Nachamkin will retire in order to continue to pursue creative and scholarly interests.

Prof. Virginia Anderson-Stojanovic

After 35 years of instructing students on Latin, Classical Civilization, Art History and Archaeology, Prof. of Classics and Fine Arts, Virginia Anderson-Stojanovic is leaving the community upon completion of the spring semester. She notes that she appreciated the serious, respectful tone her students have shown, and for the laughter they have brought her over the years.

When asked about post-retirement plans, she said, "I am looking forward to having some time to complete several archaeological publications and continuing my study of Balkan [southeast European] languages and culture. I would like to become active in several international nonprofit organizations in the Baltimore –Washington area where we will relocate next year."

Prof. Beverly Ayers-Nachamkin

Prof. of Psychology, Beverly Ayers-Nachamkin began teaching at Wilson 30 years ago. She teaches Psychology and Womens Studies courses. "I simply love teaching. I enjoyed Statistics and Women’s Sexualities the most," she says.

Nachamkin plans to get a new house and explore a new community. She also wishes to brush up on French, learn Spanish or take a feminist theory course.

She considers her students her most significant accomplishments. She leaves a final statement, "Discover what it is you like to do and do it; do it well."
