The Big One' and 'Riverside Strut"

"To whom it may concern: Nancy Goldberg successfully taught a non-credit, community college, community education creative arts course called 'Art, A Spontaneous Emotion," for seven terms, beginning spring term 1994 through fall term 1995. Nancy brought a contagious spirit and imparted love for creating art to her students. Those same students responded with positive evaluations of her work. It has been a pleasure working with her."
Ed Kaiel, N/NE/Cascade Campus Coordinator, 1996
