EVENTS

Woodhams Retires!

Wildcat Alumni and Woodhams

Woodhams and some of the Daily Wildcat alumni attendees

He came. He saw. He blew the doors off the ‘Glass House.’

After 31 years as a presence across the national student media landscape, Mark Woodhams, director of Arizona Student Media and adviser to The Daily Wildcat for more than two decades, retired on February 28th.

That evening, more than 150 current and former students, family members, friends and colleagues celebrated Mark at a party held at Amalour restaurant in Tucson. The event was spiked with reunions, speeches, gifts and farewells as those impacted by Mark’s work honored him.

Here are some photos for now, and a video is forthcoming.
