Pi Gamma Mu news.



Dr. Clara Small, Second Vice President of the Pi Gamma Mu Board of Trustees and Salisbury University Professor (Ret.), profiles 56 notable African Americans in her new book Compass Points: Profiles and Biographies of African Americans From the Delmarva Peninsula. The 317 page book got its start back in 1998 when one of Dr. Small's students made the comment, "Blacks have never done anything in this country, nor on the Eastern Shore." That night, Small stayed up all night and wrote a 32 page manuscript. Over the next 15 years, Small continued to work on her labor of love.

Dr. Roger Lee Mendoza, an actuary and professor of business economics at Wilmington University and the University of Pennsylvania, recently published the following articles in peer-reviewed journals in health care management.
