Thank you very much for supporting the Payson campus of Gila Community College through your underwriting and publishing of the recent “Mogollon Muse” insert of the Payson Roundup. This celebration and widespread sharing of the creative arts component of the college is to be commended. The creative works of Payson campus students and faculty can now be enjoyed by both those within the academic circle of GCC and the greater Rim Country community.
Special thanks are also extended to Peter Aleshire and Tom Brossart of your Roundup staff who take time from their own busy schedules to act as adjunct faculty for Gila Community College and share their wealth of creative knowledge and experience with our students and other faculty. Collectively we have a very unique cadre of adjunct faculty here in Payson who give tirelessly for very little remuneration Their instructional efforts, their real rewards, can be ascertained by a careful reading and review of the “Mogollon Muse.”
The works by the students in the “Mogollon Muse” should inspire us all to find our own creative outlets in the community, whether it be through a class at GCC or some other community forum.

governing board member,
