Congratulations to Gerald Grossman, our November Student of the Month. Gerald works days on the Focus Line and has been employed here for over 31 years . He has taken both Introduction to Computers and Intermediate Computers through the Learning Center this fall. He even gave up his bowling league for a few weeks so that he could learn more functions to use on his home computer.
Along with bowling, Gerald's other hobby is trains. He is a member of the Ann Arbor Train and Trolley Watchers. In his spare time, he takes pictures of trains, organizes them and presents slide shows to members of other train watcher groups.
We salute Gerald and wish him well in his educational endeavors.
