Keep an eye on the mailbox, as the November issue of the alumni magazine will be arriving soon. In this issue of Illinois State you will find the following features:

  • Newspapers are struggling to survive, and yet James Tyree ’78, M.B.A. ’80, led an investment group that purchased the Sun-Times Media Group Inc. out of bankruptcy.
  • Mennonite College of Nursing graduate Janessa (Stimpert) Jenkins ’06 cares for the most frail of infants at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
  • Thousands die annually from infections caused by bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. Distinguished Professor Radheshyam Jayaswal has garnered millions in research dollars to examine the potentially fatal superbug.
  • Foundation Annual Report special insert: As state funding dwindles and higher education costs escalate, Illinois State’s donors stand in the gap. The annual report reflects the campus community’s gratitude for donations, which do indeed make a difference.
