On Sept. 28, PCC lost a much loved and highly regarded member of its community. JoAnn Thomas, a faculty member in Interior Design at Sylvania Campus, passed away at 3:30 a.m. from illness. She died peacefully in her sleep with her husband, Roger, at her side.

Thomas began teaching at PCC in 1989 in the Interior Design Department as a part-time instructor. In 1999, she became a full time and served as faculty department chair for the program. Her contributions to PCC and the community were many.

A PCC scholarship fund will be established in her name. Her family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the scholarship. Additional information can be found at www.mileuxdesigns.com/operationTHOMAS.htm.
