Dr. Tucker relinquishes duties as 'Banner' adviser

English Honor Society Award.
by Deborah Tillman
After five years of dedi
cated service to the “Bennett
Banner” as adviser. Dr. Vir
ginia Tucker has decided to
relinquish her duties to
Michael Gaspeny, instructor
in the Department of Com
As adviser. Dr. Tucker was
involved in every aspect from
copy-reading stories to proof
ing the laid-out copy. She
often took responsibilities
that were not hers such as
writing news stories, billing
for advertisements and writ
ing headlines.
On Recognition Day, Dr.
Tucker was presented with a
silver ink pen and flowers as
a token of the staff’s sincere
appreciation of her service. In
summarizing her association
with the “Banner” Dr. Tucker
stated, “It has been one of the
most rewarding experiences
of my life. I have enjoyed
working with the succession
of fine editors. I will truly
miss it.”
Since she has worked with
the “Banner,” the editors
were Cheryl Johnson ’74-’76,
Diane Stevens ’76-’77, Joyce
Bass ’11-19,, and present ed
itor, Deborah Tillman ’78-’79.
“Dr. Tucker is truly an as
set to the school paper. She
performed above and beyond
the call of duty. The staff will
really be deprived of a great
adviser but I am certain that
Mr. Gaspeny will also be an
asset to the paper,” stated
Editor Deborah Tillman.
Dr. Virginia Tucker will be sadly missed by the Bennett Banner Staff next year.
Mr. Michael Gaspeny will replace her as adviser.
