We in the GEOS department are saddened to report the passing of one of our own, Prof. Karin Hoover on March 30, 2021. Dr. Hoover has been a valued member of the GEOS family, first as an undergraduate, and then with her return to Chico State as a faculty member in 2000. Although she was in part-time retirement, Dr. Hoover still provided the same wit, sharp sense of humor, and passion for students through these difficult on-line learning times. She was loved by her students and colleagues, and she will be missed terribly.
