Now Introducing the Newest Member of the Akron U English Faculty...Alexandra Hidalgo!

Yesterday my amazing wife waltzed straight into the English department at Akron University, slapped down a resume, went through a brief interview that included grading a hypothetical student paper, and walked away with a job. Alex is now an adjunct faculty member who will conduct 3 freshman composition classes this fall. One half hour with the department chair was all it took. This is a great beginning to what doubtlessly will be a long and productive career in academia.

And who knows what will follow. Publications? Tenure track? A full professorship? An Ohio state driver's licence? Only time will tell.

McBone Inc, on behalf of the NOML the NIML and the entire McBone community, extends a hearty congratulations to Alexandra Hidalgo, Adjunct Professor of English at the University of Akron.

Congratulations and welcome home! I will be checking next years' US News and World Report, as Akron U will undoubtedly have earned a higher ranking.
