“I am truly honored by this special academic recognition,” Boman said. “I would like
to thank Dr. Earl Brooks, Dr. John Shannon and Dr. Sarah Franzen for giving me the
opportunity to be a team member at our esteemed institution for 12 years and to provide
Spanish language instruction to students from all fields of study.”
