Susan Stalewski, MBA, MLS, director, Office of e-Learning and clinical associate professor, Clinical Laboratory Sciences at the College of Health Sciences, recently received a surprise in the mail.

Sgt. Steven Rembalski, one of her eLearning students, is deployed in Iraq. He sent her a U.S. flag that was flown in her honor in his base in Basra. Accompanying the flag was a certificate describing how the flag was flown over the headquarters of the 34th “Red Bull” Infantry Division and was signed by Maj. Richard C. Nash.

Helping this student was especially rewarding for Stalewski, since her own son was deployed in Iraq at the same time. Remblaski described the flag as a thank-you for both Stalewski’s help with the online “Introduction to Diagnostic Medicine” course and “all the sacrifices you and your family have made while your son was deployed in Iraq.”
