Condolences from Frostburg State University, Maryland

Condolences from Frostburg State University, Maryland
Illustration by FSU Assistant Professor of Illustration and Drawing Jamison Odone
I’m sharing the message that was sent to the superintendent of the Newtown, Conn., schools, along with Jamison Odone’s beautiful illustration. We will all continue to keep the people of Newtown in our thoughts and prayers.

To Dr. Janet Robinson, Superintendent of Schools, Newtown Public School District

Dear Dr. Robinson,

Please accept sincerest condolences from me and the entire Frostburg State University community to you and everyone in the Newtown Public School District community. As a fellow community of educators, our hearts go out to all of you.

I am sharing the attached illustration, created with a heavy heart by Jamison Odone, an assistant professor of Illustration and Drawing here at Frostburg. He lived near Newtown before he came to Frostburg, and he produced this illustration as an homage to those who died.

If there is any way the resources of Frostburg State University could be of assistance to you in the future, please accept my offer of support.


Jonathan C. Gibralter, President
