City College announced the loss of faculty member Janet Hose through an email this past Friday. Hose worked as a Learning Disability Specialist as well as a Disability Counselor for DSPS and has assisted students since 2015. In the email sent out by Interim Superintendent-President Kindred Murillo, colleagues described her as, “rational and methodical, caring and sensitive, a rare combination, and one we were lucky to have, and so heartbroken we’ve lost.” With this loss, City College encourages anyone grieving to visit student health services such as Personal Counseling Support, and The WELL. The WELL is hosting a Grief & Loss Workshop on Oct. 12, with emphasis on healing through loss in a time of isolation.
