The following information was sent from the College by Cynthia Richardson.

June 2:

from Dr. Evon Walters, Executive Dean:

Our Friend and colleague, Jim Banks, College-wide Coordinator of Multicultural Affairs, suffered a heart attack prior to Commencement yesterday morning. Jim was admitted to North Shore hospital where he underwent major by-pass surgery. Despite concerns from his doctors, Jim managed to make it through the surgery, but he is not responding well to the treatment and his doctors are concerned. Should Jim not respond to medications by the end of today, his doctors are considering a partial to complete heart transplant.

Jim is a strong man and a strong believer in the power of love and faith. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. We will keep the college community updated on his condition as we receive updates from his family.
