CORRECTION: Walter Kaiser Tribute

The information we received regarding the passing of our beloved president emeritus has proven, joyfully, to have been false. Dr. Walt Kaiser is alive and well, for which we rejoice! At the same time, we also extend our sincere regrets for the wrong information that has been spread through our website and social media. Members of our community heard this false report announced at a recent conference’s business meeting, and given Walt’s towering role in our institution’s history, we acted quickly, wanting to honor him in a timely manner.

We do not regret having honored him in this way, but rather that we contributed to the spread of this false information. Our president, Dr. Sunquist, has communicated to him directly, expressing our deepest apologies for the mistake and our warmest wishes to him and his wife Nancy for a blessed Thanksgiving, offering special praise for his unexpected “resurrection”!

May the Lord bless us with grace and peace as we celebrate this holiday of thanks.
