A Memorial For A Beloved Professor

On Wednesday, April 6 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Fresno State Residence Dining Hall a memorial will be held for Dr. George Diestel, Professor Emeritus. Dr. Diestel sadly passed away a few months ago after a long battle
with lung cancer.

Few professors at Fresno State engendered more love and respect than Dr. Diestel. Countless numbers of students, faculty and staff were championed by Dr. Diestel during his time as a professor of Communication, after he joined the Faculty Early Retirement Program and after he finally retired. Those of us whose lives he touched are welcome to pay their respects on April 6 while we celebrate the life of one of the true champions of justice in our community.

There will be light refreshments provided courtesy of the Dept. of Communication

Dr. Douglas Fraleigh
Chair, The Department of Communication
