To John Cabage on Jan 10, 2019 #

As we kick off another busy semester, I wanted to take a minute to extend my gratitude to Dr. John Cabage in the School of Technology.  John works tirelessly to make sure his students get what they need from day one in our Construction Management Program/Major and, overall, any coursework he is responsible for teaching. John is a true ambassador (in every sense of the word) for this program, the School of Technology, and Eastern Illinois University. Kudos for your hard work, dedication, and perseverance Dr. Cabage!
