Recognizing Mr. William Michael Kimberlin

"I was doing some late night pursuing of the CSUB Student Swap page on Facebook as I sometimes do to look for student concerns/potential issues and I came across this post about William Kimberlin.  I felt compelled to share.  It isn’t often enough that our instructors and faculty get public praise, and I felt it noteworthy.  Great job to William and your whole team, it’s a reflection of your leadership as well." - Jennifer Mccune from University Registrar
