Stan Shaffer took an early retirement in 2002, after 28 years of teaching at the College.  His contributions to English, Film, Media, and Men's Studies at the College were extensive.  Shaffer was probably best known, however, for founding Cinema CNC and promoting the love of film in the community.  On the occasion of his retirement, a commemorative plaque in his name was installed in the College theatre, and the Library was pleased to announce the establishment of a new Cinema CNC "MOVIES" collection in his honour.
