Students and faculty bid on their favorite professor. The faculty
member who received the most money would have to dress up.
After four days of voting, the competition remained tight,
but in the last few hours Varner forged ahead leaving Chaplain
Dale Burke at a close second.
“I knew Dr. Varner would make an excellent clown….She’s so
energetic and unashamed,” said Akamai advisor Dr. Joanne Gula.
In appreciation and for added humiliation, Akamai officers took
Varner to lunch on Fort Street Mall in her clown costume “There’s
Helen, just clowning around again,” said a passerby during lunch.
Also participating, representing various departments were Mariane
Luken, Jacqueline Langley, Dale Burke, Carol Winters-Moorhead,
Patricia Lange-Otsuka, Greg Schaper, and John Kearns.
Participation by students and faculty made it a spooktacular
success. Akamai plans to make it an annual event. Watch out
professors! You might be voted next year’s class clown.

Federation. They meet on every first and third Thursday of the
month, from 1-3 p.m. in the LB 1 at 1060 Bishop St. Students
