Dr. JoAnne W. Putnam, Professor Emerita of Teacher Education, passed away on Sept. 26. She retired from UMPI in 2015 and was the wife of UMPI science lecturer David E. Putnam. JoAnne was an inspiration to our campus community, its programs, and, above all, the students and community members we strive to serve. A memorial for JoAnne will be held on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. in Presque Isle at the Presque Isle Congregational Church, 27 Church St., followed by a buffet luncheon and gathering at Café Sorpreso, 415 Main St., Presque Isle.
